Lesson 12. Nonlinear Flash Interactions > Scripting the Quicktip Interaction

Scripting the Quicktip Interaction

Each of the elements is in place: the button, the movie clip, and the dynamic text field inside the movie clip. You are now ready to write the script that makes the interaction work. Before you start, it's best to plan ahead and spell out what you are trying to do as well as the role each object will play.

  • The three objects you will use have the following instance names: tempest_1_btn, quickTip_mc, and quickTip_txt. Remember that quickTip_txt is inside quickTip_mc.

  • You need the script to make quickTip_mc invisible by default.

  • You need the script to do the following, when the user rolls over tempest_1_btn: make quickTip visible, position it near the user's mouse, and populate the Dynamic Text field with the correct text.

  • You need the script to make quickTip_mc invisible when the user rolls away from it.
