Mouse control

From SWFTools
Jump to: navigation, search

Mouse control are functions and instructions that enable the iteraction of the flash animation with the mouse.


Buttons are widgets whose main purpose is being clicked by the mouse.

In the construction of a button, it's possible to define different images that the button takes, depending on the position of the mouse.

For example, the piece of code, below, creates a button:

  .button mybutton
    .show image1 as=idle
    .show image2 as=hover

This button shows image1 (previously defined) when the mouse is away from it, shows image2 when the mouse hovers over it, and executes action do_something when clicked.

Global mouse behaviour

Function OnModeDown is an action that is executed whenever the mouse is pressed.

Variables _xmouse and y_mouse take the mouse position (x and y coordinates).
