Hello, I have a flash movie on an aspx page that when you mouse over it is displays a line around it like it was a button or something. I have buttons on this movie that when clicked take the user to another locaiton on the timeline or another page.... Because of the focus... I think... you have to click once on the movie and then a second time for the button to react to the click event. Is there any way to tun this funcitonality off and have the flash movie obtain focus or what ever to not require a click event before the user can actually click something?

Any help woul dbe great!

This is an Internet Explorer security measure, which forces you to activate the control before you use it.  I don't think there's a way of switching this off without changing the security settings in IE - it's not something you can change in Flash.  To prove this, do you get the same problem using Firefox?
