The company i work for build computer based exams in Flash MX
We decided to make the dynamic text boxes which displays the
exam questions selectable. This is so an external speech software
can read the text when copied. After doing this the buttons on the
page that load in the new questions (from inside the action script)
sometimes stop working, as if they were enabled false... This only
happens for one or 2 clicks then it just starts going again.
The pointer changes from the little hand back to the arrow
and the button stops clicking, even when you are right over the
It makes no difference how fast or slow you click it still
There seems to be no pattern in the way that it stops just
when it feels like it.
Also i tried moving and the buttons so there a good way apart
from the text box yet this still seems to happen.
Asoon as i make the text boxes on screen unselectable it all
starts working correctly again.
If anyone has any ideas why this is happening can you please
reply and let me know....
I'm not sure if this will solve your problem, though I can
take a stab at it. Do your buttons contain text also? Sometimes if
I find buttons with text that is not selectable behaving slightly
blinky, I make sure the text inside the button is a movie clip and
the situation resolves. It seems to produce a more stable hit state
I hope this helps, though if not, I am sure someone will
