Flash Button functionality

I'm a newbie to flash so this may seem like a dumb question but I can't seem to get the buttons to do what I want.

Right now when someone mouses over a button I make a page come up. When they click on a button a different page comes up. However, when they release the mouse to finish the click, the page from the mouseover returns, I want it to stay on the page that the click brought up. Is there simple way to do this?

Many thanks.

Not sure I totally understand what you're trying to do.

When you say "make a new page come up" are you wanting to load a new html page? or do you mean you want to load a new swf into your flash movie?

Not really loading anything. When you rollover a button you can make something in another area show up which part of the same movie. When you click down you can do the same.

My problem is that when I release the mouse button that the whatever I made show on the button press reverts back to whatever was showing on the mouseover.

One way to do this:

1. make a new keyframe on frame 10 of the maintime. Then put the page you want to come up there.
2. Select your button and put this code on it.

on ( release ) {
      _root.gotoAndStop( 10 );
}
