Drop Down Menus - Be a Flash Menu Master! - Basically an invisible...
(Page 2 of 6 )
Basically an invisible button is simply a flash button, with no content in the first 3 frames, just one object/shape in the hit area. You can expand on this to add sounds in the "over" stage, so as a user rolls over the invisible button, a sound plays. There is a lot you can use them for, so it's good to start using them as soon as possible.
What do I need before I start?
You'll need Macromedia Flash 5, which is on the cover CD
How hard is it?
Easy - a knowledge of buttons and frame labels and movie clips should be all you need.
How long will it take?
Walk through: A 14 stage walk through of the software with a grab for each
stage and 50-60 words.
First things first... decide the size of your movie, frame rate and background colour. You can change these later, but it may give you some headaches if you drastically change scene sizes.
I've chosen a black background, a frame rate of 21 fps and a size of 120 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall.
