OK. I created a button. I want that when the mouse curosr is over this button, the button will start doing some kind of animation?

My Problem is that in the button edit window you only 4 frames which are: Up, Over, Down, Hit. We don't have timeline that enables us to do animation when the mouse is over this button?

What is the trick behind that?

Make a separate movie clip for each button state... for instance, have your special cool Over state animation in a movie clip called Over or something. Include the *graphic* for the button in the animation, but not the button itself or you will get strange and inappropriate button behavior.

Here is the above, better stated:

You have created a square button. The button drawing is called Square, but the button itself is called Next. In the animation for the Over state, use Square and not Next!

If you would like an example, please let me know and I will whip one up.
