When you roll over one of the bottom 4 buttons, it slides up.
You need to keep your mouse in the area to keep it open. When that
area opens, it displays new content with yet another link. When I
create a button for that link, the main button is now considered
"onRollOut" and makes the window close. For example, I want to be
able to click on "See all swimwear". Any ideas on how to keep a
sliding window open while making all the items on it have new
buttons become active?
Yes, buttons on buttons poses a bit of a quandary. The best
solution is to separate the button click activity from the mouse
rollover activity. You can do this by using onEnterFrame() or
setInterval() and hitTest() to track the mouse location vs.
onRollOver(). So let's say your buttons for 1 nav are in an
animating mc called "nav1". Depending on how you handle your navs,
you'll need to determine if they're in an "on/up" state or not.
I'll do this just by assigning it a boolean "onState" var. Assuming
the code is written on your root, the script for one button would
be as follows. Use a for loop to handle tracking all 4
Thanks so much! You definitely got me started boldly in the
right direction! I noticed a couple of minor typos in your example,
so I've updated the example in a test file, cleaned up the typos
and added a Tween. So far it's working in my test file without
other things going on, but when I try and apply the principles into
my main movie, it's not working right. Time to debug.
