Lesson 12. Nonlinear Flash Interactions > Preparing for the Quicktip Interactio...

Preparing for the Quicktip Interactions

In this task, you will build two nonlinear groups of interactions. One is the Tooltip-like interaction, in which users roll over screen elements with their mouse, and a Tooltip-like pop-up appears providing information about the element that was rolled over. The second is the scrolling text area, which provides information when a user clicks one of the labels on the map.

You'll build the quicktip interactions first. These interactions are typical of the way Flash objects can be integrated to create nonlinear interactivity with a minimum of ActionScript. Each interaction will make use of three objects: a button, a movie clip, and a dynamic text field. More specifically, the movie will have many buttons—one for each hotspot/quicktip you want to create—but only one movie clip and one text field. The text field will be nested inside the movie clip.
