Tab Button Links

  • 14 years ago
    Hi, I'm designing tab (similar to a folder) based link buttons for my portfolio site but there two aspects causing me problems at the moment.
    • The first is that I am not (at the moment) as strong with my visual design as I am with my actionscript, so my tab buttons look tacky and badly designed.  Where would I go (either on the web or within Flash 8) to get a template design I can improve and manipulate?
    • Within Flash 8, before I export how would I go about removing the stages emaining whitespace around my button so that I only have the tab itself as the .SWF file?
    Thank you.

    Concerning the second point

    1) clic with right botton in anywhere in the white space

    2) Choose "properties"

    3) Put the dimensions that you want

    I think the Flash/VB article on may be helpful in this discussion.

    This popular white paper is written by some engineering folks from our organization Mindfire Solutions ( ).

    I hope you find it useful!
