    Just stick the animation for the mouse over in the up state of the second mouse. put a blank frame in frame 1 of the animation with a stop aciton in it. Then put a goto 2 and play action in the last frame of the animation so it will loop.

    then just name the movie clip with an instance name and use the tell target command on mouse over to goto and play frame two of the animation. then on mouse out just use the tell target command to goto to frame one. so it resets itself. Regards, Bill

    Ok, you have to "simulate" animated buttons: put the animations (2 instances of the movie symbol) and the buttons (2 instances of the button symbol) on separate layers. Now you'll trigger the animation to play by "Tell Target", like this:

    On (Roll Over)
    Begin Tell Target ("/Movie1")
    End Tell Target
    Begin Tell Target ("/Movie2")
    End Tell Target
    End On
    On (Roll Out)
    Begin Tell Target ("/Movie1")
    End Tell Target
    Begin Tell Target ("/Movie2")
    End Tell Target
    End On

    (you should name the both movies "Movie1" & "Movie2" for this to work)

    OR, you can do this with a variable:
    (first set)

    On (Roll Over)
    Set Variable: "Over" = "1"
    End On
    On (Roll Out)
    Set Variable: "Over" = "0"
    End On

    and then in the Frame 1 of the movie clip:

    Set Variable: "Temp" = /:Over

    and in the Frame 2 of the movie clip:

    If (Temp=1)
    Go to and Play (1)
    End If

    This is just a idea and is still in "raw" format. I can send you a .fla, or refine that source to sumfing good looking, if you post (or mail ne at
    Now this won't work if you can't separate the button from the animated part, but... Well, at least i tried
