Hello!

I have a menu bar with three buttons and an object(movie clip) above them.
What I want is:
  1. by pressing the button the object to move and stay above the pressed button.
  2.when roll-over a button the object moves smoothly above it. Like tweening.

What I did was I change the _x coordinate but it goes very quickly.

Thanks in advance!

this is the script assigned to the moving rectangle:

onClipEvent(load){
      this.startx = this.endx = this._x;
      this.frames = 5;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
      // this is the decelerated motum formula
      this._x += (this.endx - this._x) / this.frames;
}

buttons change this variables with:

on(rollOver){
      this._parent.moving.endx = this._x;
}
on(rollOut){
      this._parent.moving.endx = this._parent.moving.startx;
}
on(release){
      this._parent.moving.endx = this._parent.moving.startx = this._x;
}

Hi,

Now I am trying to add a scroll bar down but it doesn't appear. When I create a new document everything is fine. But with the one with your code I cannot see the scroll bar. What is the problem? Thanks
