I know how to create a drop down menu, but,
I want the drop down menu
(which happens on mouseover)
to slide down gradually.

How do you do this?

In my Drop_DownMovie

I have basically the
layers and I am using 15 frames
which are labled like this:
1-7 is contracted
then 8-15 is expanded

I have not added all the layers yet
but there will be maybe 5 rectangular
buttons that will drop down below the
button when it is expanded.

I make a layer for all 5 of these buttons

The thought just occurred to me to
put a recatangle in layer 9
one in 11 one in 13 and one in

I dont think this is how its done, so

What is the proper way

i was kind of confused with how you said you did it so far, but here goes:

if you make two movie clips, not just one, one for expanding and one for contracting. make a button and in the "Over" frame put the expanding movie and in the "Up" frame put the contracting movie. i think this is how you do it, but im not positively sure. i hope you can use it however.
