Cursor not changing to a hand in transparent movie

Dec 13, 2012 3:01 PM

I know there used to be an issue with using movies set to transparent in that the cursor didn't change to a hand when rolling over buttons.

Is it still not fixed?


I am using AS2 (less code) but could convert to AS3 if I have to. I have about 15 buttons all with animations that activate on rollover (its a kids website). They float over a large background image set as a background that's centered and overlaps the actual html page content quite a lot (for large screens). Looks great but its hard to tell what is a button.


I have tried the code below for a button instance name button_1


button_1.buttonMode = true;

button_1.useHandCursor = true;


that doesn't work.


Is there a solution?


p.s. Does anyone know of a good vector based animation software package for html5. One that works in the way that Flash originally used to; simply, effectively with very little need for code.

Don't even mention Edge or the useless html 5 Javascript converter extension.

    are you using the html code created by flash or using swfobject?


    and, what's the problem with adobe's createJS for converting timeline animation to html5?
