hey folks,
i'm pretty new to flash mx2004, and new to actionscripting (i'm graphics based, not code based...)
anyway, i've been looking for a real basic tutorial or sample file that i can look at for help installing fairly basic menubar. I got as far as dragging one onto the screen, and adding the individual buttons, whcih look nice, but, i can't get the buttons to call up other web pages in my site...?

is there anyone who know a good resource or demo anywhere?

Hi, thanks for your reply.
Yes, i did look there. i've looked a few places.
So far, the best i found was this tutorial, that was supposedly going to show me how to do this stuff, but i'm stuck....


see this part...?
"When you drag and drop a component onto your stage, an asset folder is created in the Library called Flash UI Components. Inside this folder you will see a collection of folders, but specifically one folder called Component Skins. This asset folder is where all the skinís movie clips are stored, as shown in Figure 1.

If we modify the movie clips inside these folders, we can affect how the Component will be displayed."

For some reason, when I drag and drop a component onto the stage, i don't have any such folder called 'Flush UI Components'. Matter of fact, I don't have ANY folders in my library. Am I missing something obvious?
