when you rollover your button and 2nd time, nothing happens?
correct...I'm not sure why
do you see "ready" twice?
yes that what confuses me. I get the trace que to try it again and when I mouseover it dose nothing.
Do I need to clear the mouse click? add some code to the parent?
copy and paste the output panel when you use:
if you see both traces both times, you're rollover is executing. there are a variety of reasons why you might not thing it's executing.
I tried the trace on all the clips
the all gave me level0 (parent), but only once.
I did try and starting from the very begining _parent.gotoandplay(1)
but that didn't do anything (trace did work).
each movieclip sits on fame one of the parent (different layers), and starts when the sf is run.
the individul clips ahve stops at the end of there timeline.
The mouse over sits on the last frame of the last movieclip. logo
Thanks for the help so far!.....I was hoping it was gonna be something simple I was missing
that's not what would be traced.
restart you swf, click the same button twice. copy and paste the output panel display.
sorry I just simplified the asnswer. here is what I got from the trace
running your test, from the prior email
the first trace
a trace from the first mouse over
the second trace (cycle)
The button is clickable (Actionscript) in the first frame of the parent
Tried to trace them all and it did nothing
when I took out the logo, the other three traced
(the mouseover is in the logo movie clip...will this cause a problem
is your code and are your buttons on the same timeline?
is your code in a keyframe. what number frame is that?
your buttons are in, at least, one keyframe. what keyframes are they in?
are your buttons timeline-tweened?
The code for the button to be clickable and the mouseover are not in the same timeline
The click code for the object is on frame one of the parent with a script to make it clickable
The mouse over for the same object sits in a (nested timeline) with the logo mc (plays last)
both codes are in their own keyframes
The code for the click is frame one of the parent
The Code for the mouse over is on 400 of the logo mc
*all other nested timelines in the other moviclips are the same
(long timelines, but its what I got to work with =])
the button is not tweened
note:I noticed you said buttons...I,m workin with one. should I be using a separate button. One for clicking and one fro mouseover?
is on frame 1 of a movieclip. place the following on that frame 1: trace("rollover "+this);
clickTAG_btn is on what frame of the movieclip that contains it? place the following on that frame: trace("clicktag "+this);
show your clicktag_btn onPress or onRelease code. on the frame that contains that code place: trace("click "+this);
run you movieclip (once is enough) as long as all three traces execute.
This is apparentlly a bug in flash preview. I had someone else look at the actual swf, and it seemed to work. Thank you for you help. It was appreciated! (Sorry to bother you with something that was a bug in the app itself)
