I am creating a  page that I want to click on a button to bring a scrolling menu list that a html link will work from I am using Flash CS3 Pro and am trying to use AS3 for the scripting. I've not tried this before so to say it's not cooperating is an understatment. My button will not allow me to apply any actions to them. Any tuts that might show me the error of my ways (lol)

Actionscript 3.0 :: Scrolling Button Menu Using Keyboard Class?

Oct 14, 2010

I'd like to know what AS3 code is necessary to have a scrollable menu of buttons using the Keyboard class. I am creating app similar to a Yahoo widget, and I would like for the keyboard to simulate a remote control in the prototype. The keyboard's directional buttons (up, down, left, right), the "backspace" and "enter" button would be used to navigate. I have found AS3 code on how to move objects using keyboard commands (up, down, left, right, back), like in a game, but not how to move the target area from one object (button) to another. The changing target would be a clickable button using the "enter" button.

Flex :: Menu Control - Click A Button And A Menu Is Displayed. Click That Button A Second Time And Hide That Menu?

Jun 20, 2010

Basically, I have a button and on click it displays a menu. I want to click that menu a second time and the menu closes. Currently, every time you click the button, the menu reopens. I pasted the Flex livedoc example below. If you click the button, the menu keeps reopening.Now, I rigged it up by setting a var to open and closed, so when clicking the button it does a check. However, if you click away from the screen, the HIDE event gets dispatched, and the menu closes. This messed up the open close var being set.

How could I make this Flex example below show the menu on button click, and then on a second button click, it closes the menu? Take into affect that if you click away from the menu, it closes it.Also, I played around with the MOUSE_DOWN_OUTSIDE event for the button and set the preventDefault, and the FlexMouseEvent event.cancelable is set to false.Changing to a PopUpMenuButton is not an option. I have to much skinning involved.Here is the Flex example:

// Import the Menu control.
import mx.controls.Menu;

Professional :: Flyout Menu Button Functionality Within MovieClip

Jul 27, 2010

I created a flyout menu from this tutorial: [URL]. It basically created buttons within a movie clip for animation. Everything works great, but I cannot get the dropdown buttons to go to frames outside of the movie clip. Within the movie clip I am adding script to the dropdown buttons as follows:
on (release) {
gotoAndStop("Scene 1",10);

But it won't work. The buttons only seem to be able to go to frames within the movie clip such as:

Professional :: Change The Link For A Menu Navigation Button?

Aug 12, 2010

I installed a flash template. It has navigation buttons with a nice roll-over effect. The buttons are all located within a symbol called "menu" (it is a Movie Clip type symbol, not a Button type). Each individual button in the menu appear to be in its own separate layer, so the first button is in a layer called "item1, second button in "item2", and so on. I want to edit the link for the fourth button so it goes to another website but I can't seem to find the code to edit the link. I managed to find


and this does work - upon pressing the button it goes to the website link. However, there is no more roll-over effect for this button. So there has to be an alternative or better way to editing the link for this button (without removing the roll-over effect).

Scrolling On A Flash Menu Built With XML?

Feb 23, 2010

I did a xml image gallery, with buttons for each image (using the duplicateMovieClip function + a for loop).Now i went to next step, I need to make a scroll for the menu, BUT, i don't have any idea how to set something to happen after the for loop is done.

My code so far:

var yPos = -10;
var depthCount = 1;


Just for a simple test (since i noticed what i tried wasn't working well), I added a test movie clip and added a _visibile = false to be executed, i added it right after the closing of the for loop. I didn't had sucess thou, it happened before the loop .

ActionScript 2.0 :: Photo Gallery With Scrolling Menu?

Nov 25, 2009

I am trying to make a photo gallery with a scrolling menu at the bottom. I have made both a photo gallery and a scrolling menu with tutorials but I can't figure out how to combine them so that they work. I've tried for quite a while now and I think that the problem comes from the scrolling menu which requires that I put all of the symbols I'm using into one symbol called panel. Is there any way to combine the code without completely rewriting it?
Here is the code for the photo gallery:

PHP Code:
loadMovie("image1.jpg", images_mc);

ActionScript 3.0 :: Rollover Scrolling Menu - No Buttons

Feb 29, 2012

So below is my code for a project I'm working on. I'm having some trouble though. I got the code for the scrolling menus online from another forum, but I can't figure out where that was. In any case, the current version of the code allows for the scrolling to happen when I open the page displays (enter Frame). But I can't figure out how to get the scrolling to happen only when I hover over the menu. I only want each one to scroll when I hover over the menu, not when I get on the page. I tried to replace the "enterFrame" part of the code, but it didn't work right. I need this done ASAP.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Side-Scrolling (Horizontal) Menu?

Feb 16, 2010

- The menu scrolls to the left when mouse is over the left side of the menu (there will be an arrow pointing left), and the menu reacts in the opposite fashion when the mouse is over the right side of the menu- The menu is constantly scrolling in the left direction when the mouse is not over the left or right arrow- The menu stops scrolling (or slows down) when the mouse scrolls over any of the items in the side-scrolling menu.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Scrolling Menu With Mouse Control

Nov 6, 2010

I've been searching through here constantly for a thread about a horizontal scrolling menu for actionscript 3, but I can't find any that are what I need. I have something that has been written for AS2, but I don't know how to write it for AS3.

This is the script I have now, that I got from a website called Sitepoint (Flash Script - Scrolling Menu With A Scrolling Background, I'd link but this is my first post here).

xm = 0;
function xpos(bar_length,mul)
hpos = 400;


I like it because its all based on the x position of the mouse which I feel makes the scrolling easier to control than a variable speed, not that it matters too much.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Scrolling Menu Jitter Won't Work

Sep 28, 2011

I'm working on an AIR for iOS iPad scrolling menu with "kinetic" interaction. I'm trying to emulate as closely as I can the behavior of native components. To that end, I've had to forgo the traditional startDrag() method because of the peculiarities of the native UIScrollView. The reason startDrag() won't work for me is that when you drag the menu past its upper or lower scrolling threshold you encounter resistance, that is, the effect of your mouse/finger on the scroll/dragging of the menu is cut in half. Inside either threshold, if you move your finger a pixel the menu moves a pixel. Beyond either threshold, when you move your finger two pixels the menu only moves one because of the a .5 resistance multiplier. As far as I know, startDrag() doesn't account for any of that.

ActionScript 2.0 :: SWF Containing Vertical Scrolling Infinite Menu

Jan 29, 2009

I am working on a very minimal site that consists of a swf containing a vertical scrolling infinite menu that loads other swfs into the main timeline: [URL].I am building this in MX, and it is based on this tutorial: [URL]. I figured out how to change this to a vertical format that fit my needs. This is the actionscript I attached to the main menu movie clip:

onClipEvent (load) {
} onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
var distance=_root._ymouse-ycenter;
if (_y > 0) _y=-2323;
if (_y < -2323) _y=0;

The swfs are sized large as the end result is a private site dealing mostly with clients using very large monitors. I am creating the swfs to be loaded in with Flash CS4, and they contain large images that have smoothing enabled. As I know nothing about Actionscript 3.0 and very little about 2.0, I am creating the main swf in MX as I am more familiar with it.

Anyway, what I need to know is:
1. How to add something to the code that will stop the timeline's scrolling where you left it when you roll off of it,
2. Any other vertical scrolling menus I can take a look at to compare this with?
