The Basic Smart Clips

Radio buttons, check boxes, and drop-down menus are familiar interface elements to anyone who has ever spent time on the Internet. You probably just take them for granted because they are so easy to implement using HTML and JavaScript. Creating those same elements in Flash, however, is a bit more involved. Fortunately, Macromedia has taken care of this problem for you by prepackaging these same elements as smart clips in Flash.

Smart clips are preprogrammed to accept specific parameters or values. By changing the values of the parameters that are passed into a smart clip, you can customize its appearance or functionality. (See Figure 20.1.)
