View Full Version : My movieclips cant be made into buttons.

02 February 2003, 04:14 PM
First off I have looked through the help alot if anyone knows a specific area in the help section that comes with the program let me know. I am using Macromedia Flash MX.

I am trying to make my movieclips into buttons. I remember this used to be simple just set the instance as a button but it seems now you have to change the whole symbol. My actionscript to make the buttons fade looks like so for each menu item.

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
if (this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse, true)) {
} else {

I thought I could just add onRelease but its not working any help here?

Thanks in Advance.
