Hi, could you please tell me how to make scrolling text with button in it. That button must be a link to subpage of the flash template.
Maybe you have some tutorial?
Thanks, Agnes

I don't know the answer (I don't know that much about Flash), but I think I can help to clarify the question:
Are you looking for a button with scrolling text on it? Or are you looking for scrolling text that has a button inside the text and the button also scrolls with the text?

I imagine either of those could be accomplished with the right layering. Create a layer with text and a button, then scroll that whole later. Or create a scrolling text layer within a button.

But it's been so long since I've used Flash I might be missing something that's difficult in those steps.

Hi, I meant I am looking for scrolling text that has a button inside. The problem is- I ma working on a ready template. I want the button (that is in the scrolling text) takes you to the page on the template where is stack gallery. Code on (release) goandPlay(scene2) Does not work. The best would be if you show me some tutorial.
Thanks.

You want the button to move across the page? That's probably not a good idea as it will make navigation difficult for visitors with a visual impairment and/or reduced mobility skills, which doesn't necessarily mean anyone with a disability or physical condition - age can have that effect too. Do you really want to discriminate against those visitors?

You can find many tutorials by searching on Google, but again they might not work with that template.

And what Beverley says is important. There are times this might be fine-- maybe it's part of a game where clicking a moving target is intentional. But other times it might be confusing. At the very least, include a text-only link somewhere else on the page for users who might have trouble with that, and for users without Flash available (like on iPhones/iPads, and older computers).
