    Custom cursor using startDrag

    RxMadjack

      Hello everyone,

       

      I have a movieclip following my mouse to act as a custom cursor.

       

      I am using startDrag on the movie clip and mouse.hide()

       

       

      What I am trying to resolve is the following:

       

      I have several hidden simple button objects in the background of my flash movie. ( I am using these to detect when the user has the mouse in certain areas of the flash movie)

       

      When i go to move over these simple buttons, my custom cursor movieclip stops following the mouse cursor.  Normally my cursor would also then change to the Hand cursor, but i disabled that.

       

      Can anyone think of any method or hack that would make this work for me?  I would like my custom cursor following the mouse pointer at all times even when hovering over a simple button.

       

      thanks in advance.
