Seminar Summary

This seminar covered the technique of nesting a button in a movie clip symbol. This provides new functionality that you can’t attain with just a button. Because the movie clip has its own Timeline, you can create almost any animation or effect that you can think up. In the workshop of this seminar, you learned how to create a dropdown menu. You will most likely use drop-down menus in other Flash movies that you develop. Just to point out one more time, the movie clip symbol is a very powerful and versatile object in Flash MX.

This seminar also covered the Math object and many of the actions that can be performed by it. You learned how to use the Math.random object to generate a random number. Then, you used the Math.floor object to round this number to an integer. These are common uses for the Math object, and you will use both of these new actions, as well as other Math objects, in your Flash development.
