    stupid bloody buttons

    i have a vertical row of buttons (moveclips really) down the left side of my page. when u rollover an animation plays on the button. the thing is, when u put the mouse between 2 buttons u can make them both play. the buttons arent overlapping and are point-pixel perfectly touchin. i even if i seperate the 1 pixel apart this still happens. is this something im goin to have to live with or can i sort this out in anyway?
    cheers

    1)Replace the code in frames 1 and 12 with simply this:

    stop();

    2)Then go back to the main timeline.

    3)Select one of the movieClips by single clicking it and open the actions panel. Then enter the code:

    on (rollOver) {
    gotoAndPlay(2);
    }
    on (rollOut) {
    gotoAndPlay(1);
    }

    4) Repeat step 3 for each of the movieclip buttons, making sure not to open them in symbol editing mode (stay on the main timeline). The script is the same for all the buttons.

    This places the code directly on the movie clip ratherthan inside it. It does the same job as your scripting but more simply, and it also solves your problem!

    My appologies, the code for step 3 needs to be this:

    on (rollOver) {
    gotoAndPlay(2);
    }
    on (rollOut) {
    gotoAndPlay(13);
    }

    By putting 'gotoAndPlay(1)' on the 'on (rollOut)' event rather than 'gotoAndPlay(13)' it was missing your "mouseout" button animation. It's only the target frame number that needs to be different.

    Also, by using this code, you do not need to place a button inside the movie clip, instead simply put a background rectangle on the bottom layer of the clip the size you want the clip "button" to be.This wil act as a "hit" frame for the movieClip and define the size of it for the on (rollOver) event.
