The Workshop consists of quiz questions and answers to help you solidify your understanding of the material covered in this hour. You should try to answer the questions before checking the answers.



How many frames can appear to animate when you roll over a button?

  1. It depends on how many keyframes are in the button.

  2. No more than four frames.

  3. As many as you want because you use a movie clip.


Can I have a different sound in two different instances of one button?

  1. No.

  2. Yes.

  3. It depends on whether the sound loops for looping sound, yes; for nonlooping sound, no.


What happens if a button has no graphics in any state except the hit state?

  1. It won't work.

  2. You'll have an invisible button.

  3. Flash will crash.

Quiz Answers


C. Although in the master button itself you only have the space of one frame for each state, in each frame you can place a multiframe movie clip (of any length) and, like all movie clips, it will play on its own.


A. If you put a sound in the master version of a button, that sound will be heard in each instance of the original button. However, if all the visual contents of buttons are instances of other symbols, you can have two master buttons without affecting file size negatively. That way, you can have a different sound in each master button. (Of course, two different sounds will add to file size.)


B. That's how you make invisible buttons.
