I've been using Flash for a while but as an experienced Director user and Lingo programmer I took on the task of learning more than just the Flash basics. Like you I've seen all kinds of cool stuff on the web using animated buttons and such. I wanted to create much more than pretty buttons... how about cool hidden menus that could be animated! This is a long tutorial so be sure you've got enough time. I guesstimate it'll take you about an hour or so. This tutorial was originally created in Flash 4 but has been updated to take advantage of updated syntax and dot syntax available in Flash 5. If you need the previous tutorial for Flash 4 please click here for a redirect to that tutorial.I've also spiced it up a little with by teaching you how to create and use custom functions of your own.
If you need the older tutorial for Flash 4 please feel free to contact me through email.
