I need some help with a flash banner to go at the top of a web page.
The banner originally came from template monster so most of it is done and working. 95+%
I am having an issue with getting the buttons to work. There are 3 sets of buttons.
- A row of 5 at the top all the same using the same movie clip.
- A column of 3 on the side using their own movie clip.
- A single button at the bottom.
The issue i am having is in changing the button states back to the off state when click from one set of buttons to the next.
User comes to home page and the first home tab is in the up position. If the user clicks on any of the other top buttons everything works fine. The buttons will always stay in their proper state as the user navigates the top menu.
The problem is if the user clicks on a side button the side button opens properly and the top button closes but then becomes stuck so you cannot click it until another button has been pressed.
If you continue navigating side menu it works fine, each button opens and closes properly but the button at the top that originally closed when side button first pressed keeps doing the close animation over again.
This problem will all so occur for the side manue if you do the reverse.
As for the single button at the bottom i do not believe it has any issues nor would be effected but the issues above as it only has a mouse over animation and does not have an active state.
Anyways, from the my experimentation i believe it is just a matter of a few lines of code, probably a 30 minute, likely much less for anyone that knows flash.
Here are the details and layer names to make it faster for you.
**The 5 button menu at the top: (Instance name: item5)**
TOP MENU BUTTONS
**The 3 button menu on the side: (instance name: sidebut)**
Side button annimations
Single bottom button (learn more):
** learn more button_annimation
only other thing to note is that the actual links for the buttons are working so don't need to tamper with that.
Just need the buttons to work properly.
when the top buttons are clicked they need to be in the up state. when another top or side button is clicked the current button must go back to normal unclicked state and new button must open into active state.
This must happen for all top and side buttons.
Learn more button should be working fine as is but make sure that it is also ok.
I have included as swf file of the current state of the project. You will be able to see the problem more clearly from this file.
