Part VII. Getting Interactive

Getting Interactive

Users interact with Web sites by using the tools the Flash designer and developer make available to them. Starting with buttons, Book VII guides you through the different components that make up a user interface (UI). You find out how to dynamically place information into the components so that the users have the feeling of interacting with a site that wants nothing more than to serve their needs.

Book VII brings together all the UI tools, from buttons to components, and the ActionScript 3.0 to drive them. You discover how to add style to components and make the components do exactly what you want. You find out, as an added attraction, how to use AIR with Flash so that all the interaction that can be done over the Web is possible on the desktop.
