    Adding a border to an image

    rodjsr


      I have thumbnails of pictures (which are buttons inside a movie clip) and I want them to have a white border on:
      1) RollOver
      2) When buttons the main timeline that correspond to each thumb (i.e., interact_btn, watch_btn, read_btn, listen_btn & watch_btn) are pressed

      Here's what it looks like so far.

      Here's an example of my code for each thumbnail (i.e., img1_btn):

      img1_btn.onRollOver = function(){
      this._alpha = 100;
      _parent.read_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.listen_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.watch_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.see_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.interact_btn._alpha = 100;
      }
      img1_btn.onRollOut = function(){
      if(allowRollOut == true){
      this._alpha = 40;
      _parent.read_btn._alpha = 40;
      _parent.listen_btn._alpha = 40;
      _parent.watch_btn._alpha = 40;
      _parent.see_btn._alpha = 40;
      _parent.interact_btn._alpha = 40;
      } else {
      this._alpha = 100;
      _parent.read_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.listen_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.watch_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.see_btn._alpha = 100;
      _parent.interact_btn._alpha = 100;
      }
      }

      I've seen in other pages people have used the _border property, but I'm not sure how to use it.
      I tried adding it as I did the _alpha but that didn't work.
      Any hints?

      Thanks.
