Chapter 17. Drawing Timelines > Making a Behavior Play a Timeline

Making a Behavior Play a Timeline

You can also make a behavior play a timeline when the user clicks on or mouses over a link or image.

To make a behavior play a timeline:

1.
In the Document window, click on the object you want to use to make the timeline play (a, img, input for menu or form button). Make sure you do not have a behavior selected in the Timelines panel, or the behavior will be added to the timeline instead of the link.

2.
If a timeline is on your page, the browser version will be preset to 4.0 and Later browsers. To check this, click the + (plus) button , and then select Show Events For > 4.0 and Later Browsers.

3.
In the Actions area of the Behaviors panel, click on the + (plus) button.

4.
From the menu that appears (Figure 17.63), select Timeline > Play Timeline. The Play Timeline dialog box will appear (Figure 17.64).

Figure 17.63. We selected the link called Play It and added the Play Timeline action.


Figure 17.64. We chose Timeline > Play Timeline from the Add Action menu, and now we can select our timeline in the Play Timeline dialog box.


5.
If there is more than one timeline on your page, select the timeline you want to use from the Play Timeline drop-down menu.

6.
Click on OK to close the Play Timeline dialog box.

7.
To specify the user event that triggers the action, click on the arrow button and choose the event (onClick, onMouseOver) from the menu (Figure 17.65).

Figure 17.65. After you select the Play Timeline (or other) action, specify the user event by choosing it from the drop-down list.
