i am trying to solve this problem:
how can i test the position of the mouse inside the area of a specific movieclip WITHOUT using rollover and rollout events?
the movieclip is the irregular shape (star)
i need to do some action according to the position of mouse (inside/outside of the movieclip area) but i can not use rollover event because i have a button placed over the movieclip.
thanks for help
it'll probably be easier for you to change your setup so you can use a rollover/rollout. otherwise, you have to use a shape-based hittest (check gskinner) or the geometry of your shape.
