          You are going to need to provide more info. It's hard to say what the issue is without being able to see the code that adds/ responds to the listeners for the button click events.

            Well there aren't any.. right now I'm just laying out the UI.. So I decided to try and trace the click event on the buttons and they aren't getting clicked.. even the one that changes, which is weird..


            So I just threw a plain button up to see what would happen, and it worked fine, but then stopped working when I applied my skin.. so I think its my skin that's jacking things up somehow.. and here is that code..


            Any ideas here??

              If the assets take up the visual space in the skin, then when one is

              replaced by another as you change states, that will prevent the CLICK event.

              A CLICK is only dispatched when the MOUSE_DOWN is on the same instance as

              the MOUSE_UP

                Hmm.. so does that mean I can't have two seperate fxg graphics for those two events? Up and down?


                But the mobile skin that comes with Burrito has different effects for the up and down events..


                I'm not understanding..


                hmm?? Any help??

                  Wow.. I FINALLY figured it out.. wow.. when I created the fxg graphic I didn't delete the background image that I had created as well.. it was just still back there and so the button was much bigger than just the graphic that I thought was the button..
