Is "MC.useHandCursor = false;" Compatible with Flash Player 5?

I've hidden my hand cursor over a movieclip with:

MC.useHandCursor = false;

It's hidden in Flash 6 & 7, but not in Flash 5.  Is this not compatible with Flash 5?  Is there a way to hide my cursor in Flash 5?

Thanks,
Brandon

Excellent!  It's actually an invisible button inside a movie clip.  How would I modify to ignore rollover state of button and such?
Thanks!

there's no invisible button, it's just a movieclip. what do you want to ignore, besides rollover?

Sorry.  What I meant was, I currently have an invisible button inside a movie clip with the HandCursor hidden.  In your script, you have different images which represent different states of the "button".  I don't need the different states, cause I want it to be invisible.

So, this works fine.

onClipEvent (load) {
     this.stop();
}
onClipEvent (mouseDown) {
         // on(release)
          MY ACTION;  
}

The only question is, how to make it invisible.

Nevermind.  I just create the movieclip, then set the alpha to 0%.

Make sense?

Thanks for your help!
