Using the Flash ComboBox Component?

If I add the ComboBox component from Flash to my Director components, I can populate it, but the drop down won't open when I click on it.  Any ideas?

Note that Actionscript 2 comonents are not fully supported.  Is it a 1.0 or 2.0 component?

I grabbed it from Flash 8.  So, you're saying that if I get ComboBox .swc from Flash MX, it will work?

It will probably work better.  Director only supports AS 1 versions (as you can see by the ones that come with DIrector)

Ok, I gathered up all the old versions of Flash that I could find around the office and installed them.  When I look around in the Flash MX directories, I don't see any .swc files for the components.  Did Flash MX use .swc files for it's built in components?  If not, is there a way to export them as .swc files?

Another approch would be to use the imaging widgets at www.lingoworkshop.com or an Xtra like the ones at xtras.openspark.com (OS control), www.updatestage.com (popup) or www.mods.com.au (Buddy Menu)

I was frustrated with not being able to get the components that I wanted to work in Director, so I laid out all of the components that I wanted to use in Flash, and imported the .swf into Director.

Just to be clear, I've solved this issue on my own.  Thanks.
