Help! I have scoured pages and pages of books and forums, and
cannot seem to find a straight answer on this. Even on the recent
posts in this forum the answers seem very muddled.
I have created a drop down menu, which consists of a movie
clip with an onRollover action, which "drops down" a movie clip
that contains movie clip buttons. for example:
menu_mc (has onRollover and RollOut action to reveal menu)
contains button1_mc, button2mc, etc.
which are supposed to link to outside urls.
i am to understand that by using onRollover and onRollout on
the menu_mc to animate it negates the movie clip button's actions
underneath...I just don't understand what action (tellTarget?) to
use (AND WHERE...frame? instance?) to get the buttons inside the
menu_mc to work.
please help! thanks so much!!!

I was beginning to suspect as much...I was naive enough to
think creating a drop down menu would be simple!
I have started to familiarize myself with the hitTest method,
but it is a bit confusing as well.
would i use that for the drop down movie clip and mouse
handlers for the sub menu movie clips?
Do you have suggestions for how that would go,
scripting-wise?? (i.e. does the script go on the instances or
where /what would be proper code for your suggestion :
1. code mouse handlers for the youngest generation that you
want to respond to the mouse
is that a matter of targeting a path?
sorry I have been trying to figure this out so long i can't
thanks so much for your help!
