    hitTest using "if" statement

    yarkehsiow
      hello,
      i have a textField, with a box below it (in the y axis)...
      there is a hitTest set up, so that when the text box gets too long, to the point that it overlaps the box below, a movieClip is told to gotoAndPlay(2);

      the problem: because the text is hitTesting with the box, the "if " statement is true,true,true,true,true,true,true,true,true... so my movieClip in effect stays at frame 2, instead of just playing through the way it should.

      i tried a "while", but this just causes flash to crash altogether....
      could anyone suggest a solution to this conundrum?
      thanks!
