Flash Script - Popup Menu

This is a dedicated thread for discussing the SitePoint article ‘Flash Script - Popup Menu

you can’t put in on (rollOver)
{
gotoAndStop (2);
}

where you said to. It doesn’t allow ons for some reason.

Does this still apply to Flash CS5 AS2.0? I am trying to do a simple version of this and I have followed every instruction to the letter, yet it does not work. Does anyone know where i can find a thorough explanation of this for Flash CS5?

i did everything and put the code in and made instances for my layers and included them in the ActionScript and the movie played but nothing popped up. WTF? another day at work lost i feel i may be on the edge of being fired since this is day 3 of another failed tutorial. is there somthing missing? despite being a pro at photoshop illustrator, indesign and aftereffects i cant seem to get this code crap. Help if anyone is out there. this was my code for

invisible layer on the top of the layer stack and in frame 1

EchoTrakButton.onRollOver = function(){
gotoAndStop (1);
}

this was for layer 3 on key frame one

stop ();
EchoTrakButton.onRollOver = function(){
gotoAndStop (2);
}

all was done as the example said and when in the test movie the image of the button apears and nothing else works when i roll over the button.

i lose my job over this i hope flash dies.

this type of menu takes up too much space on a website, how can you make it so that it overlaps the site instead of extending it

Ok… i don’t expect an answer back anytime soon considering the date this was made… but I have created a menu similar to your rollover menu, but unfortunately the buttons embedded inside the movieclip are unusable… i can’t click them… can anyone help me?

This is not popupmenu, this is only menu.
