Hi to all, havent been on the forum for ages because Im very busy with a project...actually missing the forum!

Well Im no good at flash and I have a problem...see if somone can help me or at least point me to a tutorial!

Im desperate for a .swf file that shows one Letter and on mouse over reveals the rest of the word.....

For example "L" and on mouse over you see "LOVE"

I need this effect for a pano project Im working on, can someone point me to a file of this sort or to a tutorial on how to achieve this? Clients have asked for this effect, Im not very good at flash!

thanks, appreciate any help at all!!

Done a search in google and on here cant find anything!http://board.flashkit.com/board/images/smilies/smile.gif

I'm pretty old fashioned when it comes to flash, I would use this approach

onmouseover-> gotoframe


onmouseover -> play scene

depending if you have the rest of the letters in another scne or just added further down the timeline.

As I said, I'm pretty simple when it comes to Flash, I'm sure this can be done with actionscript alone :)

Surely this can just be the hover effect of a button, no ?

Unless you want it to appear at another place on the stage... in which case DoMedia's answer would work.
