I have a movie with some movieclips and some texts in it. The
texts are selectable, so that user can highlight the texts and do a
ctrl-c copy. The movieclips have onRelease/onPress event listeners,
and they work like buttons.
Everything works fine until user highlights the texts. After
user has done that, even after the text is unhighlighted, the
movieclips start to not catch every event. I mean not every
onRelease/onPress can be caught any more. In about 50% of the case,
flash stops to dispatch these events.
The bug is easy to produce. Just create a new fla, add a
textfield, a movie clip onto the stage. In the movie clip code add
the onRollOver, onRelease, onPress ... functions. Test it:
Highlight the text in the text box, click the mc multiple times.
Everything works fine.
Now, add a compiled clip, scrollpane, to your library. Test
it: Highlight the text in the text box, click the mc multiple times
without moving your mouse. You will see some onPress/onRelease
events are not dispatched every time. Instead, sometimes,
onRollover/onRollout events were dispatched in place of
test fla here (you will need to wait for 20secs before the
download link appear at the bottom left corner).
Thanks. If someone could confirm that this is a bug, how can
I report this to adobe?
