i want to make a sliding panel with 2 buttons on it. The panel pops up from the bottom of the screen when the mouse is hovering over the the bottom 25 pixels of the screen. The panel is set to disappear when the user hovers the mouse off of the panel. At first i just tried to put buttons on the panel and covert the whole thing to a symbol, but then i could not access the individual properties of the buttons. What i tried instead is to make invisible buttons over the area where the image of the buttons were on the panel. The problem is that when now when the user hovers over the button, flash reads it as the mouse leaving the panel and the panel disappears. Any suggestions as to how to go about doing this?
Instead of treating the sliding panel as a button and testing for the mouse over the panel, use an onEnterFrame() or onMouseMove() event to trigger the movement of that panel.
can you explain how these functions work a little more?
