Lesson 6. Creating Buttons > Using the Button Editor

Using the Button Editor

The Button Editor steps you through the process of creating all states of a button and adding the links and HTML to make everything work. Most of the time, you'll want to use this editor, but you can still create buttons manually if you prefer. When you use the Button Editor, the button is added to the library. This makes adding other buttons of the same type a snap—you just drag the new button from the library onto the canvas.

Most often, you'll create simple rollovers for your buttons. A simple rollover switches to a new image when the user rolls the pointer over the button and then switches back as the user rolls the pointer off the image. A simple rollover requires only two graphics, making downloading fast. The next exercise shows you how to create a three-state button using the Button Editor.
