I am guessing this is an easy one for flash gurus, but I can't seem to find the answer.
Here is my overview:
I have developed a Map of a county in the UK.
A user can move their mouse over all the areas on the map to get info on it.
On some areas, (urban places) the map will zoom in and show a more detailed map of that particular area.
All this is working fine.
The problem i have is that when a user clicks on a zoomable area and the map zooms in i would like to disable the mouse; so that none of the selectable areas are available until the map has zoomed in.
I have already hidden the mouse and looked at moveing coords of it, but obviously they can still move the hidden pointer all over the map which slows the animation slightly.
Is it possible to turn the mouse on / off??
Maybe i have to disable a layer when the anim begins (which houses all the selectable areas???), don't know how to do that either?
Thanks for any help...
