Hi, a simple question really, I would like for the user to click on a help button and have a new window pop up for them to help. Another window other than the main frame. So how would I go to making this new frame and how to code it's appearance and dissapearance. Thanks

So just posting this in case anyone comes across this issue as I have found the solution with the help of this website : http://www.danfergusdesign.com/classfiles/oldClasses/VCB331-richMedia1/exercises/controllingMovieClips.php

it's a symbol type.

you should read some introductory material about flash.  there's nothing more basic than a movieclip in flash pro.

I created the movieclip, and now the coding for it is the trouble, I am trying to start the program off with it being invisible, or not there, and when they go to click a button it appears. This is the code I have to make it invisible on the launch of the program (the movieclip is called menu_instructions in the properties menu) :

/*

  Nom du programmeur: Tyson Steele

  Date: 30/03/2015

  Nom du fichier:  U1A7_Puissances.as

  Description:  Ce programme liste toutes les valeurs d'une base exposant un chiffre de 0 à l'exposant.

*/

package

{

  import flash.display.*;  //Ceci importe les fonctions déjà existant dans le programme pour faire fonctionner les fonctions.

  import flash.text.*;

  import flash.display.MovieClip;

  import flash.events.MouseEvent;

  public class U1A7_Puissances extends MovieClip

  {

  var menu_instructions:MovieClip;

  removeChild(menu_instructions);

This is a prtsc of the properties window :


Sorry for the french.
