How to make a 'hotspot' on an image in FlashMX04

Hello everyone . . .

Question :
How can I make only a certain area of an image
'clickable' inside of Flash (MX2004)?

You know how in Dreamweaver, inside of any image,
you can draw the hot spot in the properties panel.

Can the same thing be done with an image inside
of flash so it behaves like a button?

Example, when you click it, it takes you to another
website. (onRelease) ...

and ... one last qestion, how do you make
links open as "_self" in flash from the button

I don't use mx04.. I use mx or v5 .. but I'm guessing it's the same.

I find the simplest way is to draw a button and keep it in my library ..and then resize it whenever I need it.

simply draw a shape using the tools over the area you want your "hotspot". once it's the way you want it, convert it to a symbol, and specify you would like it to be a button symbol. Inside the symbol - copy the frame across so that the over,down and hit are all the same.

now.. when you put the button in your movie where you want it. simply change color: Alpha to 0% - hence - an invisible button - apply your actions to it accordingly (eg: getURL or whatever)

hope that helps :-)
