Hello everbody! well its my first post here, yay!
I am quite a noob when it comes to Flash so this might be common knowledge to the rest of you so please bear with me.
I am trying to make an animated tab interface for a site I am building. Each
tab is a movieclip symbol that has 5 animated states:
-idle - the default state of the tab,
-rollon - animation played when the mouse is rolled over the tab,
-rollout - animation played when the mouse is rolled off the tab, returning to the idle state,
-selected - animation played on mouse button release, and stops with the tab in a selected state... *not* the idle state, and
-on_deselect - animation played on mouse button release on another tab returning the tab from selected state to idle state.
The problem I am facing is what actionscript is required and where do I need to place it so that when a an idle tab is clicked the selected tab plays the on_deselect animation?
Basically, what this script should do is identify which tab is in the selected state and then instruct that tab to play the on_deselect animation (I think).
Maybe you could guide me generally as what I should do or provide a link to tutorial. Thanks for your help!
