    [F8] onRollOut not registering

    The best way I know how to explain my problem is to show it. Go to www.wandohigh.com/index_test.html and you will see a big main flash movie smack in the middle of the page. There are dropdown menus, blah blah.

    Direct your attention to the far left drop down menu. It's the one that says "Families." Well once it's dropped down, roll your mouse out of it to the left, so that your mouse leaves the flash object. Apparently the mouse leaves the flash object too fast and flash never registers that there was a rollout, therefore never dispatching an onRollOut event, which is required to have the dropdown menu disapear! Ahh!

    Does anybody know how I can fix this?

    Before you post, do you search?

    What I've previously done in this situation was to use something like a hitTest to keep the _visible true. As soon as the mouse is no longer over it, it will disperse.
    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    	if (hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse, false)) {
    	} else {
    		this._visible = false;
    That should be in your menu mc's actions.
