I have a tweening animation that fades images in and that
moves images from side to side. I want to block all user
intervention whilst those animations are...well...animating.
Because is someone clicks on the menu before the image has faded
in, it will remain pale...in other words, the tweening stops at

Take a look at the properties, methods, and events under the
class entry of the ActionScript 2.0 Language Reference. If
your menu is
made of button symbols, you'll want to look up the Button
class. If your
menu is made of movie clip symbols, you'll want to look up
class. Classes define objects in ActionScript, and just about
an object. Objects feature up to three categories of
properties (characteristics they have), methods (things they
can do), and
events (things they can react to).
See if that gets you started. ;) Both movie clips and
example, have an enabled property. If you give each of these
instance name -- select your button or movie clip and look to
inspector -- you may specify each instance name in turn and
instance's enabled property to false before the animation
occurs -- then
back to true when it's over.
