introduction to interactivity


As a web site is designed, buttons may be added to enhance the interactivity to site pages. The buttons can be simple rectangles with the name of the link or 3D buttons that react to the mouse by changing color, glowing, or taking on the look of a mechanical button that has been pressed down.

In Fireworks, a variety of buttons can be created, complete with all the JavaScript and HTML that make them work. The button editor makes it easy to create simple and complex button elements.

A rollover button is an image that changes appearance when a user moves the pointer over or clicks it. There are four states:

  1. Up - Frame 1
  2. Over - Frame 2
  3. Down - Frame 3
  4. OverWhileDown - Frame 4
