    Transparant bar on mouse over

    Hi Guys - newbie here - nice to meet you all.

    I've been playing around with KM for a few weeks.
    I've developed a bit of a slideshow and was wondering how I could get a transparant bar (with some buttons) to appear at the bottom of the stage when the mouse is moved over the bottom of the stage?

    Any help would be most appreciated
    Cheers

    Not sure there is a way to do this without getting your hands dirty with a little actionscript, but fear not! I'm here to help

    Create a new movieclip, draw a rectangle the size you want your bar to be. Close the movieclip and position it where you want it to be. Reopen the movieclip and select your triangle, convert it to a movieclip name this movieclip "contents" open this child movie and add your buttons.

    Code:
    mc1.contents.alpha=0;
    
    mc1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER,showBar);
    mc1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT,hideBar);
    
    function showBar(e:MouseEvent){
    	mc1.contents.alpha=.5;
    	trace("over");
    }
    
    function hideBar(e:MouseEvent){
        mc1.contents.alpha=0;
        trace("out");
        }

    to make it really cool you could use something like TweenLite to fade it up and down nicely.
