Adding Action Keys

STEP 2: Adding Actions to the Button

  • Open the Actions tab of the button
  • Click the + (plus) and choose a statement from the pop-up menu.
  • When you choose a statement, Flash automatically inserts an On/End On statement and sets "Release" as the default button state. (You can also select "On MouseEvent" to insert an "On/End On" statement.)
  • You have following options:
    • Press - Mouse Button Pressed When the Pointer is Over Button
    • Release - Mouse Button Released When the Pointer is Over Button (Standard Click)
    • Release Outside - Mouse Button Released When the Mouse Pointer is Off Button
    • Roll Over - Mouse Pointer Moved Over the Button
    • Roll Out - Mouse Pointer Moved Off the Button
    • Drag Over - Mouse button Pressed When the Pointer is Over Button, Rolled Off the Button, and then the Pointer is Rolled back over the Button.
    • Drag Out - Mouse Button Pressed Over the Button then Pointer Rolls Off the Button.
    • Key Press - Occurs when a Specified Key is Pressed.

"Key Press" is the one we need.

  • Check the "key press"-field and click into the input field next to it

» 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.
