    resolved [RESOLVED] MovieClip flickering with MOUSE_OVER

    Hello,

    I have a basic rollover function for my button, which seems to work, but whenever the mouse is moved to the right (but remaining inside the movieclip) the MOUSE_OUT function starts happening, and then when the mouse is stopped moving, the MOUSE_OVER code re-activates. I have no other movieclips in front of it, but it is masked using actionscript.

    I don't understand why it's doing this, because the mouse never goes outside the area of the movieclip, so the MOUSE_OUT function shouldn't activate. The movieclip doesn't change side or shape at all, it just changes colour.

    Does anyone know what's causing this problem?

    Code:
    rotator.leftArrow.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, arrowHighlight);
    rotator.leftArrow.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, arrowDeHighlight);
    
    function arrowHighlight(evt:MouseEvent) {
    	evt.target.gotoAndStop(2);
    }
    
    function arrowDeHighlight(evt:MouseEvent) {
    	evt.target.gotoAndStop(1);
    }

    Hi jAQUAN, thanks for the reply.
    I've added that actionscript, but sadly the problem still remains.

    Does anyone know how to solve this bug?

    Found out the problem. Its because I'm hiding the original cursor and replacing it with a graphic of my own cursor, having it follow the mouse around. When the user drags to the right, the mouse obviously overlaps the cursor a little bit, causing it to roll out of the movieclip I'm referring to.

    The cursor code I'm using is:

    Code:
    Mouse.hide();
    
    stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE,follow);
    function follow(evt:MouseEvent) {
    	cursorMC.visible = true;
    	cursorMC.x = mouseX;
    	cursorMC.y = mouseY;
    }
    
    stage.addEventListener(Event.MOUSE_LEAVE, hideCursor);
    function hideCursor(evt:Event) {
    	cursorMC.visible = false;
    }
    Anyone know a better way that will stop this from happening?

    cursorMC.mouseEnabled = false
    cursorMC.mouseChildren = false
