Actionscript 3 :: Flash SimpleButton Sticks In Over State?

Aug 4, 2011

I'm working on a Flash project using ActionScript 3.

Our interface switches between different modes by adding and removing the direct children of the main stage--we call these scenes.

The problem I've encountered is this: One of these scenes has a SimpleButton (flash.display.SimpleButton) with distinct up and over states. When I mouseover a button, it goes to the over state as expected. But if the application automatically switches to a new scene (in this case, a video finishes and the app moves on) and then the user navigates back (causing the original scene to be re-added), the button stays in the over state until I mouse back in and then out again. I'd like to be able to force that button back into its up state.

I've tried setting b.overState = b.upState, but then there's no appearance change on subsequent rollovers. I've also tried dispatching a ROLL_OUT event to the button object, but that doesn't do anything either.

other than implementing something from scratch that exposes a way to force a state change?

I am trying to get converted to Actionscript 3 from AS2.In old versions of flash, you simply placed the sound in a keyframe inside the button on the over or down state. Worked fine, but not anymore.I guess the sound must be set up with actionscript and a listener.I understand linkage. how to make one sound on the over state and a different one on the down state?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Making A Button Stay On The "OVER" State

May 9, 2006

I have this Movie Clip Drop-Down Menu, which has a button inside (Overview) that turns red when you roll over it ... When the Drop-Down Menus sub-buttons are clicked, the movie jumps to a frame labeled "WhoWeAre" or "OurMission"... When it lands on either frame, I want the word "Overview" to remain red, indicating that you are now in that section.

Can actionscript be written so that the "Over" state inside a button remains on once it reaches a new frame? I currently achieved this with a dirty hack, creating an ADDITIONAL menu with just the word "Overview" in red on the "Up" state, but it screws things up and the sub-buttons don't work once I reach either of the new frames for some reason.

I've posted the file at [URL]

Dec 17, 2004

I have a menu with five nav buttons (atcually MovieClips). Each has three frame labels: "on", "stay", and "off". The rollover and rollout animations play flawlessly, but I'm at a loss as to how to give each button a sticky "active" state. I'd like the button to stay in it's active state until another button is clicked, then I would like it to play it's "off" animation. Each MC has this code:

ActionScript 3.0 :: Make A Button Stay On Top?

May 15, 2009

I have two buttons assigned like this:

buttonprev.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, image_previous);
buttonnext.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, image_next);
These events fire a function which looks like this: loader.load(new URLRequest(getPath()));
My other code is:
loader = new Loader();

If my picture takes up the area where the buttons are, the buttons slip underneath the image. How can I make the buttons stay on top all the time? My movie works fine as long as the picture that I load from a nearby directory does not cover the buttons..

Button Is Clicked Make It Stay In Down Mode?

Mar 15, 2011

This is hard to explain. Basically the user needs to choose their sex and type in their name then press the continue button. The gender selection is a bathroom identificationesque picture of a girl and boy. The boy is blue and the girl is pink. When you roll over the boy, it becomes a lighter blue and when you roll over the girl it becomes a lighter boy.

What I don't know how to do is that when you click on the boy, it stays a lighter blue, and lighter pink for the girl. That way they can see what selection they made. Also, when you click the boy then click the girl, the girl will become highlighted and the boy no longer will be (so you can only choose one gender). How do I do this? And how do I tell the program to store the info for later use? (when gender is important). I know that this type of action is used often in games so hopefully someone can help me.

Make Text STAY Up After Removing Mouse From Button?

Someone has created a map where there are little colored buttons over building locationsThe buttons were made so that when you hover your cursor over them, they will bring up a little chat bubble (like the ones you see in comics) with the appropriate street address text. What I cannot figure out is how to, after removing the cursor from over a button, make the text bubble stay put so that those who see the map can highlight then copy and paste the street address from it.
