Wondered if anyone has come across this before:
I have a toolbar created in Flash8 where if you click a
button, a drop-down menu appears. The drop-down menu is a MC that
I've applied a dropShadow filter to.
If you place a button onto the drop-down menu MC or anything
that redraws when you roll over or click it (ie pretty much any
component), then it creates a 'hole' in the drop-down menu MC
through which you can see the background - really annoying - and
draws a shadow.
Remove the dropShadow filter and the problem with the 'hole'
I've worked round this by defining my own button class and in
every mouse event putting the following code:
this.parentFilters = _parent.filters;
_parent.filters = ;
this.gotoAndStop("Up"); // or whatever redraw you're getting
it to do
_parent.filters = this.parentFilters;
and this solves the problem but I really don't have to write
all my own components as I now need loads of other components on my
drop-down menus. I also really like the drop-shadow filter effect
and don't want to scrap that.
