I have a small flash menu I'm trying to code and have run nito one small problem,
I have a graphic, when rolled over plays a movieclip, 'menu1'
I have an invisible button area with the following code:

on (rollOut) {
      gotoAndPlay(10);
}

Now, I guess I'm having troubles putting buttons on top of buttons... because once I mouse over my 'actual' button the invisible button area seems to think I'm movie my mouse off it, yet the mouse cursor is still inside the button area...

Here is a link to my movieclip screenshot:

Place the Same Action on the Second Button.

on Second Button

on rollOver() {
// Same Action that you had on Button1 RollOver
}
