a simple thing whit frames and buttons(I think!).

a simple thing whit frames and buttons(I think!).

a simple thing whit frames and buttons(I think!).

(OP)
Hi everyone!! I’m a newbie with the entire macromedia SW, for now I’m just  trying to make a presentation in Director.

Well.. my problem is:

How can I do to.. click on a button and go to a specific frame, then go back to the frame where the button was clicked and see this selected  button marked in some way or changed for a new sprite???   

I thing it can’t be very difficult but I have tried for hours and at this time feel stupid.

can any one help me??  Any help will be appreciated. thanks !!

RE: a simple thing whit frames and buttons(I think!).

Frame 1:
A button "goToFrame10Button"
A frame loop script in the script channel (so that the playhead stays in this frame)

Frame 10:
A button "goBackButton" (in the different sprite channel from the button in the frame 1)
A frame loop script in the script channel (so that the playhead stays in this frame)

The task:
If you click "goToFrame10Button" the movie goes to the frame 10. Then if you click "goBackButton" in the frame 10 the movie goes back to where it comes from (frame 1). When you are back to the frame 1, the "goToFrame10Button" is now changed to "goToFrame10ButtonVisited".

The frame loop script:

CODE

on exitFrame me
  _movie.go(_movie.frame)
end exitFrame

The behaviour script attached to "goToFrame10Button":

CODE

on mouseUp me
  global gFrameToGoBack
  gFrameToGoBack = 1
  sp = sprite(me.spriteNum)
  sp.puppet = true
  sp.member = member("goToFrame10ButtonVisited")
  _movie.go(10)
end mouseUp

The behaviour script attached to "goBackButton":

CODE

on mouseUp me
  global gFrameToGoBack
  _movie.go(gFrameToGoBack)
end mouseUp
