Over the weekend I was working on a dialog box for our game. This box would add the ability to show some text that can scroll and have a button to close. Something simple that we need for just about any game.
Unfortunately, I found that Actionscript 3 does not have any built in functionality for this and had to create it myself. I found some scattered tutorials around the web to do what I wanted, but they were often not easy to find or use. Namely, most of the tutorials I found were for use with the Flash IDE, which I am not using. I am using a strict code only system. So those tutorials did not help completely. They did however point me in the right direction.
So I created a tutorial to show you what I did to solve my problems.
Just follow the link to the Dialog Box and Button Tutorial.
