    A listbox is a flash component and cannot be altered, try to create your own listbox control.  Anyways flash components are extremly large, I wouldent suggest you ever use them! :D

    Well Venabili as you see the suggestion provided by Brett19 was not a solution but a comment. As you can see 500 points requires some kind of solution. Also it is wrong to say that Flash component cannot be altered, as i managed to alter it

    With this piece of code you can actually change the hand cursor to show up in the list box

    var myListRollover_Listner:Object = new Object();
    myListRollover_Listner.itemRollOver = function(evt:Object) {
          for (var i=9; i <= (main_menu_array.length + 9); i++){
                      mainMenu_listBox.content_mc["listRow" + [i]].bG_mc.useHandCursor = true;

    No you can use the Flash transitions to do however you want when you rollover on a list box item

    Accepted Solution
