Flash Storybook Menu Overlay Toggle Positions
- For each of the elements, go to the Properties Inspector and make a note of the X and Y positions. You should get something like this.
- Now we need to record the X and Y positions for the settings menu overlay page when it is off the stage. Select all the layers inside the setMenu folder. We will now drag all the selected elements upward until all are off the stage. Record the new X and Y positions for each element. As you can see, the X position stays the same and the Y position is a negative number because it is above the stage.
At this point, we are ready to add ActionScript to the setTogBtn toggle button that will open and close the settings menu overlay page.
IMPORTANT: These app development tutorials are written with the Flash novice in mind. You will need to optimize your app beyond what is covered in these tutorials before finalizing your app for the app store.
