Hello:

I am new to Macromedia Flash. I have been building some simple movies and games via tutorials and experimenting with Actionscript; I am looking for the method to display an image dynamically against a background upon user-input, say, via mouse selection on an element upon the screen (I have this bit down, mouse input-- I just simply need now to fire an image in response to the mouse input and render it upon the screen in a predeteremined area of the stage).

I have found many tutorials (most poorly-written) and reference material online. I am hacking around and taking apart some Actionscript hoping to discover how to accomplish this image painting.

I am not asking for the code directly, only a link to a well-written tutorial, an Actionscript game + source to take apart, or just a shove in the proper direction. I am already really enjoying Flash and I see that it holds massive potential to me as a programmer\designer\artist.

Thank-you in advance for any help offered.

Kind Regards,
MattyD

Well, what you want to do could be done using loadMovie(.....) and mouse event such as onMouseUp, onMouseDown etc etc...

These all will work with Flash 6 and above. Use your actionscript reference which is always with Flash to know more about these functions or here's a link http://www.adobe.com/support/flash/action_scripts/actionscript_dictionary/actionscript_dictionary423.html.

Also if you wanna learn lot about Flash including adavnced acrionscript, using xml php with flash, or 3d animation and even game development http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash/index.htm is a great resource.
