Creating a button with multiple rectangles on it--like Dante does (Dajo) - 1/30/2008 8:51 PM PST RRS feed

    Hi all,
    
    Another question: I am trying to follow Dante's example of creating a Play 
    button, but when I double-click the rectangle (lesson 3, topic 1) to make it 
    a child of the grid, it replaces the grid instead of becoming a child, like 
    it does with Dante. What step am I missing?
    
    Thanks.

    Howdy,
    
    I am not familiar with that tutorial, but by the sound of it, you are not 
    "activating" your Grid control... you need to double click the grid in the 
    objects and timeline category of the Interaction panel and you should see it 
    turn yellow... now whenever you add any child elments from the toolbox etc, 
    they will become a child of the activated control (in this case.. the grid)
    
    Cheers
