Follow the mouse....

hi, i have been trying to design a nav bar for a website where there is a movie clip with
>      <     as a pointer, which follows the mouse up and down the nav bar and points to the buttons when the mouse is over them. the problem is that it always seems to be a few places lower than the mouse is. this is due to the way when u have a movie clip there is a border round it which makes the movie clip larger in size dimensions than the characters in it.

the actionscript code im using is

onClipEvent (load) {
        speed=.4;
        top=0;
        bottom=420;
}
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
        _y+=_ymouse*speed;
        if (_y<top) {
                _y=top;
        } else if (_y>bottom) {
                _y=bottom;
        }
}

and the problem can be viewed at http://www.newwavesound.co.uk/flashbar/nav.swf

thanks pete

pete,

your code looks ok. try to move content of your movieClip (those ">   <") a little bit higher.
