    Help with hover captions

    ltdesign1
      Hi,

      I am having issues with this hover caption script I got from kirupa. Most of the captions work great but some (especially long names appear way to the left of the button).

      You can see an example here:

      http://design.migcom.com/sonoma_redesign/south_county.html

      (The two examples would be rolling over the green land area just the left of hwy 37 (Dickson Ranch) and then just to the left of that (Sleepy Hollow Dairy)

      I am using the following actionscript:

      captionFN = function (showCaption, captionText, bName) {
      if (showCaption) {
      this.attachMovie("caption", "cap", this.getNextHighestDepth());
      this.createEmptyMovieClip("hoverCaption", this.getNextHighestDepth());
      hoverCaption._alpha
      cap.desc.text = captionText;
      cap._width = 7*cap.desc.text.length;
      cap._alpha = 75;
      //
      if ((bName._width+bName._x+cap._width)>Stage.width) {
      xo = -2-cap._width;
      yo = -17;
      } else {
      xo = 2;
      yo = -17;
      }
      hoverCaption.onEnterFrame = function() {
      cap._x = this._xmouse+xo;
      cap._y = this._ymouse+yo;
      cap._visible = true;
      };
      } else {
      delete hoverCaption.onEnterFrame;
      cap._visible = false;
      }
      };

      Any ideas? I have played around with the x any y values and nothing seems to really change it...
