    [F8] visited button issue

    So I have an invisible button, on top of a movieclip with two frames. I want it to be able to have it show you have visited a button, and for the most part it does that however, I'm getting weird issues whereas if i click on any button, the rest will stick by just rolling over them, without clicking. hard to explain really, here is the example: www.jmfoto.net/whitelabel.html go to "foto" and click on "wedding 1"...here is my as:
    gallerynav_mc.gallery1_btn.onRollOver = function(){
    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton1_mc.gotoAndStop (2)
    }
    gallerynav_mc.gallery1_btn.onRelease = function(){
    holder.loadMovie("wedding1/1.jpg");
    }

    gallerynav_mc.gallery1_btn.onPress = function() {
    pressed = true;
    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton1_mc.gotoAndStop(2);
    }
    if (pressed == true) {
    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton1_mc.gotoAndStop(2);
    }
    gallerynav_mc.gallery1_btn.onRollOut = function() {
    if (pressed == true) {
    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton1_mc.gotoAndStop(2);
    }
    else {
    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton1_mc.gotoAndStop(1);
    }
    }

    ....also, is there a simpler way to write all this code for 15 buttons? thank you for your help.

    Ok I think the buttons are sticking because 'pressed' is a parent variable that all the buttons are referencing. they each need an individual 'pressed' variable to be specified. You can speed up the code using a loop function

    Code:
    i = 0
    while(i++<15) {
    	gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].pressed = false;
    	gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].onRollOver = function() {
    		gallerynav_mc["gallerybutton"+i+"_mc"].gotoAndStop(2);
    	};
    	gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].onRelease = function() {
    		holder.loadMovie("wedding1/1.jpg");
    	};
    
    	gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].onPress = function() {
    		gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].pressed = true;
    		gallerynav_mc["gallerybutton"+i+"_mc"].gotoAndStop(2);
    	};
    	if (gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].pressed == true) {
    		gallerynav_mc["gallerybutton"+i+"_mc"].gotoAndStop(2);
    	}
    	gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].onRollOut = function() {
    		if (gallerynav_mc["gallery"+i+"_btn"].pressed == true) {
    			gallerynav_mc["gallerybutton"+i+"_mc"].gotoAndStop(2);
    		} else {
    			gallerynav_mc["gallerybutton"+i+"_mc"].gotoAndStop(1);
    		}
    	};
    }

    I greatly appreciate your response. I understand what you mean but I dont know how to do it. I tried to use your coding but unfortunately it did not work. I doubt it but does it matter that I only have one mc i used under the button, just copied to the stage with different instance names? I really appreciate the help.

    Sorry it didn't work. Any chance I could see the fla file? The code I wrote is dependent on you naming the instances as follows:
    gallery1_btn
    gallery2_btn
    gallery3_btn etc...

    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton1_mc
    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton2_mc
    gallerynav_mc.gallerybutton3_mc etc..

    Like say I'd have a better chance of solving the problem if I could see the detup you have.
