Has anyone had any success in trying to replicate CSS's
"hover" type functionality to repeatedly call a function using
I have an application that I'm attempting to modify so that
when a user hovers the mouse over an image, a function is
repeatedly called until the user moves the mouse off the image. The
rollover & mouseover functions both fall short as they only
call the defined function once.
E.g. I have a couple arrows images that when clicked will
scroll a list up or down. However, I want the same "scroll up" or
"scroll down" functions to be executed when the user also hovers
over the arrow images and the execution to cease on "mouseout".
I'm relatively new to flex, so any help or pointers in the
right direction would be appreciated.
I never tried something like that but i bet the cursorManager
in AS3 has information about what object the mouse hovers. Just get
this information inside the mouseover function and let it call
itself again and again if mouseHoverObj == event.target.
I don't know if this would do but would try something like
However, I don't see a way to leverage the CursorManager and
retrieve any relevant info about the object a users mouse is
currently hovering over. I'll continue to research it, but it

in a different capacity, I'd love to see it.
I wish I knew Flex a bit better as it appears the MouseEvent
has a "relatedObject" property that I might be able to
