Hi, Experts

I have a code that onPress is not working. I use RollOver once and it disable the button to function. I wonder if are there any way to make onPress work. Thanks

What are you assigning the onPress event to?

Cause I tried it out, and it works fine for me.

I did notice, however, that you set the onPress event for work_list.jew on every enterFrame event. I'd move this out of that event, cause it's getting replaced every 12th of a second.

Cheers

Ok, under further inspection, here's what's going on:

You're assigning a "onRollOver" event to the parent movie clip, "work_list". As soon as you do something like that, all the components within the movieClip never recieve any other events, they are ALL sent to the parent.

As soon as I commented out the "this.onRollOver" and "this.onRollOut" event functions, everything worked as it should.

If you'd really like the functionality of rolling over the entire movie clip, add a new layer (underneath any buttons you're using), and place an invisible (_alpha = 0) movieClip that covers all the area you want to rollOver/Out. You'll also have to add onRollOver/Out events to any buttons on top of it, cause it will count as a RollOut event (for the main movieClip) when your mouse goes over a button.

Cheers,
Gav
