My movieclips cant be made into buttons.

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)) {
this.nextFrame();
} else {
this.prevFrame();
}
}

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

Thanks in Advance.

just add your on(release) code to the movieclip without changing anything else to get it to act as a button. to move on the timeline your code would just be something like

_root.gotoAndPlay(frame#);
