Buttons - Library Buttons

You learned how to create a button in the previous exercise. Flash, however, comes with a Common Library of buttons. You can use these (although some folks think that they are pretty naff).
Step 1 - Open your Common Library for Buttons demo

Step 2 - Look at all the different folders!

Pick one and open it... again there are many different kinds of buttons in the folder.

Click on Scene 1

And drag a button onto the Stage.

Open your own Library and look... you should see the button in your own Library.


Step 3 - Control > Enable Simple Buttons

Check out your button. Some Common Library Buttons have Up, Over, Down, states and some only have
Up and Down states.

You can, of course, add text and a hit area just as you did in the previous lesson.
