    resolved [RESOLVED] simple button not working within movieclip

    I have a simple getURL button within a movieclip within another movieclip. Does anyone have any clue why this isn't working? The button is in the top layer of the child movieclip, and the child movieclip is in the top layer of the parent movieclip, so what am I missing here? I attached a simplified fla to show the issue. In the end, the main red box will be a country on a map and the popup box will contain info about the country and links to pictures and sites. Any help will be really appreciated.

    Make it a movie clip, instead of a button...
    Code:
    onClipEvent (mouseDown) {
    	if (this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse)) {
    		trace("getURL");
    	}
    }

    Doesn't the onClipEvent handler trigger the action no matter where the user clicks? I want to make sure they have to click on the button. (sorry in advance, I'm new to actionscript)

    Yes, but the 'hitTest' function will make sure the mouse is over the movie clip.
