    Behaving erratically when mousing over the text

      Hi all,

       

      I have a very strange problem. I am trying to do a simple photo-gallery using edge animate without using the timeline as much as possible.

       

      Let's say I have a thumbnail, and I want to mouse over the thumbnail and it goes semitransparent and a text pops up.

       

      Now, what I had done is I have gone to the compositionready and set the codes to sym.$("caption1_txt").hide(); to hide the text. Next, I have gone to the mouseOver and set the codes to

       

      sym.$("thumb1").animate(

      {

      "opacity":"0.2"

      }, 500

      );

       

      to set the opacity to 20% for the thumbnail. And then I set the text caption to show like so :

       

      sym.$("caption1_txt").show();

       

      Conversely, I have gone to mouseOut and do the reverse as shown :

       

      sym.$("thumb1").animate(

      {

      "opacity":"1"

      }, 500

      )

       

      sym.$("caption1_txt").hide();

       

      The strange thing happens when I mouseover the text, it seems to flicker repetitively. May I know how to solve this? It seems the program is trying to execute an event for the text block but there is none. Is there a way to nullify or 'ignore' the mouseover effect for the text?

       

      Thanks, greatly appreciate!
