In my code, when a user clicks on a button, I set the alpha of the button to 50 and set enabled=0. This works to essentially disable and grey out the button. The problem is that even though the button has been disabled, it still sits in the over state until the user moves the cursor off the hit area... Funny, no?
Since you can't tell a button what frame to go to, how do I get it to go back to its up state (without recreating all my buttons as movieclips and doing the whole thing manually)?
I'm sure there's a simple solution I'm missing here...
What version of actionscript are you using?
CS3 / AS2. (still kicking it old-school, haven't made the jump to AS3 yet)
That's a shame... just kidding, but AS3 supports giving some control of the button states where AS1/2 do not. I'll think on it a bit, but for the moment, a movieclip is the only solution that comes to mind.
