STEP 5 - Default Cursor

There's always usually going to be someone who doesn't want a custom cursor to play with, or has chosen one, but wants their default cursor back. This is simple to do. Copy one of your butttons on the stage, and paste it next to the rest of the buttons. (This is where your blank frame comes into play)
Put some text on the button saying "Default Cursor" so the user knows what it does. Select the button and press "F9" to bring up it's actions panel. Type in the following:
on (press) {
This script simply tells the cursor movie clip to go to the blank frame you created where there is no custom cursor, it also tells the movie to show the normal or default cursor.


And that's it! If you've read and understood this tutorial properly, everything should be working fine with your cursor menu. However, if you do have any questions or problems, feel free to download the source .FLA or contact me:

Thanks, enjoy!

I've been a flash developer for about 2-3 years now, i never realised how complicated it would be :S I prefer making games to animations, but I'll try anything once :)

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
