Getting Interactive with the Click of a Button

Buttons symbols are a major component in Macromedia Flash for creating interactivity. Now with Flash MX, button symbols and dynamic and input text blocks are treated as objects, just as a movie clip is treated as an object in Flash 5. This opens a new door for the Flash development. Because it’s an object, you can control and manipulate a button symbol with ActionScript. This new functionality enables buttons to be even more powerful with Flash MX.

Note

In previous releases of Flash, Movie Clip symbols were the only objects that could be controlled by ActionScript. Because of this limitation, if you wanted to control a button with ActionScript, you had to nest an instance of a button inside a Movie Clip symbol—not so with Macromedia Flash MX.
