I don't know if this changed in flash 8 or I'm just senile
but it seems to me that when I disabled a movieclip, any and all
controls inside of that movieclip (buttons, child movie clips, etc)
were also disabled, via inheritance.
I started using Flash 8 back in June and have noticed that it
doesn't work (when I have time, I will return to mx and see if it
works there, as my memory tells me it does). Am I missing something
or what? How come inheritance doesn't work when it comes to the
enabled setting? Anyone have a work around?
My current project involves a movieclip that holds
dynamically generated movieclips (and hence I have no idea what
will be on the screen at any given time) and when an overlay is
displayed above this, I need to disable those movieclips. The easy
solution was to disable the "mother movieclip" but that doesn't
edited to add: I just tried it in mx and it's the same deal.
Coulda sworn you could disable child controls by disabling the
parent. Any ideas? Thanks!
You gonna put an overlay over the top of it? MovieClip? you
could make the background of the overlaying movieclip a button with
no code on it, this will block any button behind it from receiving
mouseover/out release etc
