The tutorial is for building one button with drop-down
As you have built another (B) .. along with A .. the problem will be with the roll-off button.. it is only coded for one button.
You can fix this by giving each button an instance name .. say buttonA  and buttonB
then on the roll-off button..

on(rollOver){
   _root.buttonA.gotoAndStop(1);
   _root.buttonB.gotoAndStop(1);
}

as you roll off any part of either drop-down both buttons will be reset

Thanks for helping me.

I tried to do it. Now, two menu list will not appeared at the same time.
but the problem is all the menu list can't dissappear at the same time.

I give instance name for both button (btn-snow2 & btn-school2 respectively).
I create different rolloff for each button with diff instance name (instance name of 1st rolloff is  "roll-back" - for 1st button,  instance name of 2nd rollof is "roll" - 2nd button)
For both Rolloff, i typed same function:

on(rollOver){
    _root.btn-snow2.gotoAndStop(1);
    _root.btn-school2.gotoAndStop(1);
   
}

Is it correct? Pls kindly adv..Thanks.

I tried making one of these and as you say.. and the original code is fine..one button works .. but it got as buggy as hell when more buttons are added.
The problem does lie with the rollout button and the trick is to surround the menus.. not have it in one piece in the background.. so we can forget the new coding I suggested.
Seeing i made one have posted it for you to look at.

Thanks Zeffer. Actually i can do it by using this over the weekend

on(rollOver){
    _root.btn-snow2.gotoAndStop(1);
    _root.btn-school2.gotoAndStop(1);
   
}

just that, i removed "_root.".


Million thanks... :-)
