If the button is inside the mc, the code in the button's function would probably only need to be...
this._visible = false;
Yes I tried it and it still dose not work inside the _mc file, however
as soon as I place it back onto scene1 it works.
Show the code you are using inside the movieclip and describe where the code is and where the button is.
I have attached 2 jpeg files to help explain. my knowledge of AS2 is
poor and i try stick to basics to prevent problems so please excuse
the simplicity of my scripting.
