    basic question - stopping mouse behaviour (inheritance) between movieclips/layers

      hi all
      i have a datagrid on the main root level.
      from time to time, i "show" a movieclip over the top of the datagrid.
      the movieclip is about half the size of the datagrid, and as such you can obvously "see" part of the datagrid BEHIND the movieclip
      how does one STOP mouse events from passing FROM the movieclip that has focus, to the underlying timeline (in this case the datagrid).
      in other words, when my mouse moves over the area of the movieclip, the datagrid behind is still receving mouse events and so highlights along each of the rows (as though it has focus).

      Hope that is clear.

      Cheers for any suggestions.
