Part IIA: Basic Workshops > Creating Custom Cursors

Workshop Chapter 2. Creating Custom Cursors

Flash lets you make fairly sophisticated buttons with very little effort. However, despite the new control to turn off the hand cursor (myButton.useHandCursor =false), you really just have two options for cursors: the hand or no hand. In this workshop chapter, you’ll learn how to create custom cursors. Custom cursors not only tell users that a button is clickable, they also provide clues about the type of button users are presented with. A custom cursor can tell users whether they’re supposed to drag the button or just slide it to the left or right.

This workshop chapter shows you how to make a custom cursor in just a few steps. Then, the workshop takes what you built and creates a component so that you can incorporate cursors in any movie you make. Finally, the workshop guides you through the steps to create a custom UI (User Interface).
