Chapter 4. Working with Groups, Symbols,... > Enabling and Disabling Buttons

Enabling and Disabling Buttons

Flash allows you to test your buttons within the development environment without having to export the movie. You can test the behavior of simple buttons by toggling the Enable Simple Buttons feature on and off. When buttons are enabled, you can't select them or enter their symbol editing mode normally. Disable this feature if you need to enter the symbol mode. You can quickly see how the different states of your button behave without having to export the whole flash movie. Any ActionScript applied to the button will be ignored.

Enable and Disable Buttons

Place a button on the Stage.

Click the Control menu, and then click Enable Simple Buttons to enable the button.

TIMESAVER Press Option+ +B (Mac) or Ctrl+Alt+B (Win) to toggle the enabling and disabling of simple buttons.

Place the mouse over the button to test the Over state.

Press down on the button to test the Down state.

Click the Control menu, and then click Disable Simple Buttons to disable the button.
