Your problem primarily stems from using alpha to hide the sections and partly from not incorporating mouseEnabled commands to keep the alpha-hidden things from blocking access to the buttons inside. Items made invisible via setting their alpa property to zero will still interact with a mouse, but items that have their visible property set to false will not.
In this specific case, the Comedy Central movie is blocking access to the buttons in the second one. If you had turned the Comedy Central movie invisible (visible = false) after it was alpha-ed to zero, then it would no longer be blocking. You can confirm that's the case by switching the layers of those two movies.
So you can either manage the visible property true/false as needed for each movie so that only the currently visible one interacts with the mouse, or you can manage things by setting the mouseEnabled property true/false as needed.
Thanks Ned, I'll have a play around with these options that you have suggested You answers are always insightfull!
hello again, yeah you are correct I added the visible = false property and that seems to have enabled the interaction which is great, however it kills part of the disolve, is there a way of delaying this function to allow the alpha fade to work?
Also I'm not sure how to incorperate the mouseEnabled property in order to test it is it possible to give more info on this or perhaps point me to a tutorial or description elsewhere?
Thanks for your time and patience Ned
Hey Ned thanks I've managed to sort everthing out now utilising the mouseEnabled property. It's much more straight forward that I had first presumed, being initiated in just the same way as the other properties!
