Creating Buttons

To enable the user to change the background color, we need some buttons. In this case we are going to make a button for each color. These can be instances of one button with a different color.

For this example I will use a simple oval button. First take the oval tool (O), and draw a nice oval. Select the oval and convert it to a button (F8>Button).

Now duplicate the button several times (in this example 6 times). To copy use ctrl+C, to paste ctrl+V. Align them on stage anyway you want.

In the Instance window, click the second tab and select Tint. Your button will become black now. Click the color box and select the desired color (in this example: #000000, #FFFFFF, #FF0000, #00FF00, #0000FF and #FF00FF). Repeat this last step for all your buttons.

» 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.
