    Event model in AS 2

    SolitonMan Level 1

      I'm trying to get a detailed understanding of the event model in Flash Actionscript 2.0 (working in Flash 8). My specific problem is that I'm creating nested movie clips and when the parent has (for example) an onRollOver event handler, it's child's onRollOver event handler is being ignored. I have no idea what might cause this. I've done a fair amount of web programming, and all of the other object oriented models I've worked with have had objects that allow for independent event handlers, regardless of position.

      If anyone either knows and can explain, or else can point me to a source that explains, how the event model in Flash works in enough detail for me to understand the discrepancy I'm seeing, I'd really appreciate an assist. For further quantification I'll attach some code.
