hi, i think i am in the right place, apologies if not.

i am building a flash site for the first time, and i am using a template. i have an FAQ section and i want only the questions to appear on first viewing, with each one clickable to show the answer.

if this was in dreamweaver i'd find it easy, but flash is a whole new thing to me and i havent got a clue! any advise greatly appreciated!

thanks

It's a bit interesting that this question is in the accessibility and usability section, Flash is generally neither (though it can be coded that way, for the most part . . . . )

The answer basically lies in ActionScript and the visibility properties of your Flash symbols. So let's say you have a dynamic text box symbol "answer". Set it's _visibility property to hidden. Then you program the button to change the object's visibility to visible.
