I am trying to script a menu with a drop down menu that not
only activates a secondary dro down menu, but also changes the
background photograph to represent the button rolled over.
I am lost as to the best way to do this. I am currently using
individual MovieClips for each button (which have an image
background fade in and the secondary drop down menu roll out) These
movieclips are called when the buttons are rolled over, but the
problem is, I want the secondary menu to stay out and usable until
the user rolls over another button, in which the MovieClip would
then be told to play the end animation (fades out) while the new
dropdown menu for the new button rolls out and also changes the
I'm not sure how to do this - because each main button will
need to determine if any of the other button's "MovieClips" have
been activated, and then, if they are, to tell them to go to and
play the end animation so that they disappear.
I thought I'd use an "If" function to determine the location
of the timeline of the MovieClips, and if they were at a certain
frame (the end of the rollout animation), then they would be told
to play the "end" of the MovieClip and then activate their own
How can this be accomplished?
Here's the test of what I've started so far -

working right now - problem is, I can't tell it to turn off one
when the other is rolled over...
