hi guys,

currently trying to make my portfolio site and i need some help here.

i'm making a flash navbar, mainly using buttons. the SAME flash navbar will be put into the different pages like about.html, contact.html, services.html etc.

so when i'm on the different pages, i want my button to recognise the page that it is on by moving to the "over" state in flash. so that means when i'm on contact.html, the contact button lights up.

i've seen some websites like http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simpleviewer/ doing that and i've went thru the code. doesn't make any sense to me unless i can decompile the .swf somehow.

so any of you guys can help me out? :)

Actually there are alot of ways of doing it.
The simpler of all is using html.

But if you want flashy flashy website.
Then abit more tedious.

You can separate your pages into different swfs.
but one main page to hold them together.

So by right you should have a :
1. main page. (Big cupboard)
2. sub page of contact page (1st drawer)
3. sub page of services page (2nd drawer)
4. sub page of profile page (3rd drawer)
5. sub page of portfolio page. (4 drawer

Total 5 basic pages.

Simple one will be use load movie command to call sub page into your main page.
So that your loading will be faster and easier for future updates.
Just think your main page is the big cupboard...the subpages are your drawers.

In your portfolio page, you still can sub-page into different categories and
load different movies into your portfolio page.
Just think your drawer inside, got different compartments.

Go to flashkit.com to see the tutorials.
or
actionscript.org


It is very hard to explain it over the forum.
You have to follow through the tutorial and you will understand it.

If tutorial is too lengthy, i suggest you go national library and borrow the Basic Flash.
You need to understand how movie clips works before you can build a website.
