Feature highlight: Button Mania - animating the Controls
Credit: Imagenation

Use ActionScript and buttons to interact in novel ways among the buttons themselves. Buttons of diverse complexity including size, color, sound changes with state are used. As well 3 major ActionScript button types are used:

  1)Button type with the normal on(press){ ...} and on(release){ ... } event handlers;
  2)MovieClip buttons that take advantage of the Flash Mx capability to respond to button events like   on(press){ ...} as well as the full range of MovieClip events such as onClipEvent(enterFrame){ ...};
  3)Flash components used as buttons - they are specialized MovieClips.

Another important idea is that the controls and buttons themselves can be animated not just clips.
Click on any and all buttons and see what happens
