Converting simple buttons and frame actions
The BlackBerry® Composer can convert simple buttons and simple actions in Adobe® Flash® to the equivalent in .svg.
Simple buttons have static content (no movie clips). They trigger simple actions with the button release event. Simple buttons in .swf have the following states:
Other button events such as Press, Release Outside, Roll Over, Roll Out, Drag Over, and Drag Out are not supported.
A hit-test shape defines the pointer boundaries for the Over state. For example, a mouse click while the pointer is over the hit-test shape will activate the button.
Simple actions are tellTarget, play, and getURL. They are associated with button events, transitions between button states, or frames in the timeline.
getURL produces a Plazmic .svg extension, <loadScene>. Refer to the SVG for BlackBerry Reference Guide for more information.
Flash provides a special timeline for buttons. One frame is provided for each button state. Adobe® ActionScript® can be associated with button state transitions through the on(release) mouse event handler. Flash can also associate actions with specific frames in the timeline.
Note the following limitations:
- URL strings are converted as is. File extensions are not converted.
- The BlackBerry Composer does not support the play action on movie clips that are currently playing. Using the play action on movie clips that are running might cause errors.
- You can use the stop action in the first or last frame of the movie clip that it targets.
- The play action must target named movie clip instances.
- Frame actions and Button actions are supported, but the BlackBerry Composer does not support Clip actions.
- Buttons can have sounds associated with state changes, but the BlackBerry Composer does not support sounds (including button sounds).
