I'm needing help with Animate Action code

Hello!

I will begin by saying, I haven't messed with Animate since it was known as Flash back in the day. That being said, I don't remember much about coding actions. I've tried googling and looking on here for something close to what I'm trying to achieve, but I'm not having any luck.

 

I'm trying to make an interactive map with the action of a click of the mouse on a certain spot (a circle put on the map) to pop up a certain graphic (providing information about the circle). I have made each circle an object button. I have also made each graphic an object movie clip. I also have each of these graphics on their own layer with a duration of 5 seconds with a label.

 

I have no idea where to go from here or if I'm even on the right path doing this correctly. If anyone can help me by telling me how to do this or pointing me to a tutorial on how to do this, I would greatly appreciate it. I have attached a couple of images of what I have.

Hi.

 

Here is a sample of this kind of interactivity:

Please let us know if this is what you're looking for.

Just one thing... Now that I saw your tags. Are you using AS3?

If that is the default for this program, then yes. I'm not 100% sure. Do I need to change that to something else?

Do you intend to deploy to the web, desktop, or mobile?

 

If it's web, then you should certainly use HTML5.

 

For desktop or mobile, you can either use AS3 (recommended) or HTML5.

I was hoping I could save this file and send it to a coworker, so he can use it. So I'm guessing desktop and mobile?

Got it.

 

So AS3 and Harman AIR are the best choices.

 

Here is the same interactivity in AS3:

I hope it helps.

I can't get anything to work with what I have. I've tried editing your code, and I've tried looking up more tutorials and I'm not having any luck.
