Here are the Editor's Picks articles for the Flash and Animation Site! These are the top ten articles that your Flash and Animation Editor feels are most important for you to read. Enjoy!
1. Add Library Items to Stage – Flash ActionScript 3
In this tutorial, our goal is to load and run a movie clip with ActionScript. But, the movie clip is not on the stage when the website is loaded. It is stored in the Flash Library.
2. Remove Movie Clip with ActionScript 3
Now that we programmed Flash to move our movie clip from the Flash Library and place it on the stage, we can work on the ActionScript that will close this movie clip. The easiest way is to create a Close button and add ActionScript to go with it that will remove our movie clip from the stage.
3. Button Behaviors in ActionScript 2.0 and 3.0
With the upgrade to ActionScript 3 in Flash CS3, I thought that it would be useful to program a button using both AS2 and AS3, so that you can see the changes necessary for ActionScript 3.
4. ActionScript 3.0 Event Listeners and Handlers
In this tutorial, we will introduce event listeners and event handlers for Flash and ActionScript 3.0. You will use this code if you want to run a function when an event occurs. We will draw a star in the center of the stage and then rotate the star.
5. Flash CS5 SWF Preloader Sample File
Find out how to customize the sample preloader in Flash CS5.
6. How To Load An External Text File Into Flash For Dynamic Webpages
If you have been following the tutorials, you are now ready to add the text to the individual webpages. One nice thing about Flash is that you can load (or import) external text/HTML files into a Flash movie. See how.
7. Add a Hyperlink to a Button in Adobe Flash CS3 Professional
Many readers have asked how to create links in Flash movies that will take your visitor to another website such as your eBay store. In most cases, this link will either be a button or a text link. In this tutorial, we will take a look at how to create a button link in your Flash movie.
8. Setting Movie Clip Properties with ActionScript 3.0
In this tutorial, we will explore the properties for a Movie Clip object in the Properties Inspector and then write ActionScript 3.0 code that will set values for these properties.
9. How To Make A Flash Button
If you have been following along in the series, you are now ready to create menu buttons for your Flash website. We will create a template button that we will later use as the foundation to create your rollover menu buttons.
10. Publishing Your Flash Website
Now that you have finished and tested your Flash(R) website, you are ready to publish to the web. However, you will need more than just the finished .swf file. You will also need some HTML files that work with this .swf file on the web.
