I've been trying to find a solution for several days in
reliably detecting if the mouse leaves the Flash window. When I do
a trace of the mouse movement, the last pixel is rarely the edge of
the window, so I can't just code to shut everything off if the
mouse is on the last pixel of the stage.
In this example, I have a hitTest for the bottom row of
buttons. It activates the button and makes it slide up. Then on top
of this movie clip are other buttons (which is why I'm using a
hitTest instead of a button to control the slider). But if you exit
out of the movie from the bottom, the button you were last on stays
up. So frustrating!
Any ideas how to get this to shut off? I've heard of checking
to see if you haven't moved your mouse for some time, but this
doesn't seem to be a good solution either since sometimes you don't
know if the user just isn't moving their mouse but still wants to
keep it open.
