in the over status i included a mc which makes the colour and text change(fade in). after the stop in this mc i made the same thing backwards so the button will fade out but it doesnt work. i dont know where to place the on release.
I've attached a fla which shows how you make the button as a movie that fades in to halfway, stops, and fades back according to rollover or out. Ther's also an onrelease action you can alter as required.
