Lesson 9. Creating Animations > Adding an action to play the scene

Adding an action to play the scene

Now you'll add an action to the Frog rollover button to play Scene 2.

1.
Make the prince.html document window active.

2.
Choose Window > Actions to open the Actions palette.

3.
Select the image of the frog on the page. The Inspector changes to the Rollover Inspector.

4.
Select Mouse Click listed under Events in the Actions palette. This specifies an action to be triggered when a visitor to the Web page clicks the rollover.

5.
Click the New Action button () in the Actions palette, and select the newly added action. This activates the Action pop-up menu.

Now you'll choose the action that you want to occur. In this case, you'll link it to the new animation scene that you just created.

6.
From the Action menu, choose Multimedia > Play Scene.

7.
Choose Scene 2 from the Scene pop-up menu.

8.
Choose File > Save to save the page.

9.
Close the prince.html file and the poetry.site file.

You can also start and stop scenes using actions inside a scene. To use one scene to start another, add a Play Scene action to the Actions Track of the first scene. (If the first scene is a looped animation or palindrome, you may need to insert a Play Scene action followed by a Stop Scene action.) For more details, see “Animating floating boxes” in the Adobe GoLive 6.0 online Help.
