Using the _visible command to save space and time (so to speak)
Ok, so this tutorial may not actually save the universe, but it will save you space on the stage and time coding.
This tutorial assumes basic knowledge of movie clips, buttons, and actionscripting.
This tutorial is basically here to relay a trick using the _visible command in Flash that lets you use the same space on the stage for multiple objects in one frame. I am sure people are using this trick already, but I haven't seen a tutorial on it and i know that it would have helped me at least once. So, here goes..
Take a look at the Flash movie below:
This is basically a simple menu that when you click a button on the left, something appears on the right. The difference is that this menu is contained in one frame on the timeline, and does not load in any other movies. This saves you from copying buttons and editing script, as well as taking up frame space
Let's get started on the stage..
