How to make an autohide menu bar


Im a newbie with Director 8 and I want to create a program with autohiding menu bars? Tell me how do I do it...



RE: How to make an autohide menu bar

on mouseenter
sprite(the currentsprite).locV = sprite(the currentsprite).locV + 10

on mouseleave
sprite(the currentsprite).locv = sprite(the currentsprite).locV - 10

attach this script to the object you need to have move in and out.  NOTE: this wont move all your buttons with it, add lines of sprite(X).locv..... for every button to the mouseenter and leave scripts.

play with it for a while, if you cant work it out reply and ill give you some more pointers
