"Getting Confused" hmmm, It is fair to say the flash player is responding to the events it sees happening!
if the hidden button is the full area and the rollover says "fade in the controls" and the rollout says "fade out the controls" when you roll from this hidden button onto the controls (thats technically a rollout from the hidden button followed by a rollover of the controls) the controls will fade out first before then trying to figure out what it was supposed to do on the controls rollover.
Is that the sort of "confusion" your flash player is having?
If so, you could try changing the hidden button to "track as menu" in the properties panel
or you could remove the rollover from the hidden button and perhaps put the code on the rollout of the controls?
basically you just have to figure out the order of events that are being triggered and account for them.
you could for instance on the rollout of the hidden button, test the mouse x and y and if they are over the controls do nothing, if not fade out the controls.
hope that helps or at least gives you a starting point
Thanks for your reply. I've tried all of your suggestions to no avail. Some got me further than others. Using a mouse event listener got me the closest, but even with that technique I had instabilities.
I think that I am going to abandon this line of thought and just place a small button in the corner that shows and expands the control panel.
Thanks for your input.
