Buttons

Buttons are interactive, four-frame movie clips. They provide feedback to users by changing in reaction to the users’ actions, alerting the users that they can perform some new action. When you create a button symbol, Flash automatically opens a four-frame button timeline. The four frames represent the Up, Over, Down, and Hit states of a button. These frames can contain simple graphics, animated movie clips, or sounds. Although you can use different graphics for the different button states, it is important to maintain some sort of consistent button appearance. If a button changes dramatically in response to users’ mouse movements, it can confuse the users so that they are unable to discern the purpose of the button.

For more information about using the drawing tools to create graphics, see Chapter 3, “Drawing and Painting in Flash,” page 37.
