you can't work-around this issue. if you code any mouse handlers (like a rollOver etc) for a parent it will intercept all mouse events (like onPress etc) that are intended for child movieclips.
to remedy you must
1. code mouse handlers for the youngest generation that you want to respond to the mouse or
2. use a hitTest() for one of the movieclip generations and mouse handlers for the other generation.
I was beginning to suspect as much...I was naive enough to think creating a drop down menu would be simple!
I have started to familiarize myself with the hitTest method, but it is a bit confusing as well.
would i use that for the drop down movie clip and mouse handlers for the sub menu movie clips?
Do you have suggestions for how that would go, scripting-wise?? (i.e. does the script go on the instances or frames, etc...)
where /what would be proper code for your suggestion :
1. code mouse handlers for the youngest generation that you want to respond to the mouse
is that a matter of targeting a path?
sorry I have been trying to figure this out so long i can't think anymore...
thanks so much for your help :)
post a link to your fla and i'll show you how to fix it.
