I have a Flash movie with the main menu on level 0 from there you load all the other movies at level 1. The movies are both the same size and I have a background symbol same size as the movie on the bottom layer of level 1 which blanks out the movie below.
The problem I'm having is that as you move the cursor around the screen on level 1 the cursor changes when it detects a button on level 0 even though you cant see it.
Is there any way of stopping this happening?
You need to tell the button to hide when you load the level 1 movie
Turn the button into a movieclip (F8) and give it an instance name (say? 'button')
Then use the 'Set Property' action (on whatever, probably where you load the level1 movie) to set the 'visability' of 'button'[the target] to "false" (string) /or/ 0 (expression)[the value].
Don't forget you need to set it back to "true" /or/ 1, to make it appear again.
Alternatively, just load your second movie onto level0, this will overwrite the main movie, and the button will be no more!, This is probably better if you don't want to see or use any of the main movie underneath the level 1 movie.
