if your links are child buttons/movieclips of newspaper_mc, they are not going to receive mouse events because newspaper_mc is intercepting those events.
to remedy, use a loop (like onMouseMove) and hitTest() to detect when your child links are clicked.
Thanx kglad,i followed your advice..and it seems to work but with some defections.
The Problem here is when i hover the mouse over the About Us MC it does act as a link, i.e the hand cursor shows bt then disappears.Aldo i kno that Flash is still detecting the Mouse Over Event as shown in the Output Panel bcoz of the Trace Action. Also i'm trying onMouseDown event to detect if the About Us section is clicked, and then make it do something bt it doesnt seem to work...Help me by mentioning some AS,if u can...Thanx
you omitted the loop:
Thanx kGlad.. it worked..however as im trying to add more functionaly to the clickable areas inside the newspaper..for example a gallery..dunno if present code will serve the purpose..to make things clearer..here's the website the functionality of which i am trying to emulate..
Let me know wat u think?
that's no problem. use the other movieclip links in other hitTest()'s.
