    That one will be fun to put together, I don't have the time to do it all for ya.. But you wanted a challenge anyway,

    You want to probably use movieclips instead of buttons and and use mouse events:

    onClipEvent (mouseDown) {



    If you still want the movieclip to act like a button, the easiest thing to do is make a button, and put it inside of a movie clip, then put your code on the movie clip instead of the button. It will still react the same, but the code handles a bit differently..

    Then you make a

    onClipEvent (load){}

    handler on the movie clip that has code that basically says:

    "If I am a new clip(new name), then start moving me around the screen"

    Or whatever else you want the thing to do.

    Anyway.. I know this isn't exactly a "How To" but it should point you in the right direction. Someone wise once told me "Never do anything for someone that they can do themselves." So good luck, and if you need help along the way, I would be glad to.
