Quite simply, I'd like the menu buttons to fade from grey to blue when you mouse-over them, and I can't figure out how to do it!

A bonus would be the buttons links to each of the sample pages.

My FLA file it attached. Many thanks.

Sorry I wasn't able to because of the .fla extension.

Have attached it again but with .txt so you'll need to rename the file back to .fla.

So it's a fade from grey to blue as you rollover, then fade back to grey on rollout that you are after?

crooksy88 - That's great, exactly what I was after. Top marks!

Any chance you could give me a very brief explanation of what you did? That'd be much appreciated.

Sure,

On frame 1 you will see this code for each button (with the numbers changed)

_root.button1_mc.onEnterFrame = function() {
if (mouse_over_button1_mc) {
_root.button1_mc.nextFrame();
} else {
_root.button1_mc.prevFrame();
}
};

translated this says on every frame that is played, if the mouse over of button 1 is true (mouse_over_button1_mc), play the next frame of button1_mc.

If you select button 1 on the timeline you will see that on rollover, the state of mouse_over_button1_mc is set to true, and on rollout it is set to false, and if it is not true (else) the button is told to play the previous frame.

Does that make sense?
