TIP 97: Drawing a Button

A button is a form element, and as such has more complex properties than a link. However, adding a simple button is almost as easy as creating a link.

Mouse Actions

Buttons can cause different actions depending on where your pointer is in relation to the button, as well as the mouse action itself. These mouse movements are called triggers.

You can choose from a number of different triggers in the Options panel of the Button Properties dialog. Click the Trigger pull-down menu and then choose one of these triggers:

  • Mouse Down— The mouse button is depressed.

  • Mouse Up— The mouse button has been depressed and released.

  • Mouse Enter— The pointer moves over the button.

  • Mouse Exit— The pointer moves away from the button area.

There are several other triggers as well used specifically for forms and media, such as the on Blur and on Focus triggers for form fields, and Page Visible/Invisible for media clips. Refer to Chapter 8 for information on form fields, and Chapter 16 for tips on using multimedia.
