Flash rollover popup window with clickable links.

I am attempting to create an animation that has multiple movie clips that enter into the screen. Once these clips settle on screen I would like the user to rollover the movie clip and have a new layer or popup window appear which would have more content.

Take a look at http://www.ted.com so get an idea of what I am looking to do. I have two issues.

1. How do I create a popup window that has clickable links?

2. How does the active popup window always appear on top of the rest of the clips?

Thank you sincerely for your help.

1. you can create a movieClip containing the data you want in the popup set is visible value  to false(i.e info_mc = false) and only set it to true when you  rollover the right button.

2. you can control the position of a movieClip with setChildIndex method.//......... there is allot of data on this in the help files. also look up    swapChildrenAt method


Thanks for the reply. This is embarrassing but I am a novice as it comes to action scripting. I have made good by grinding through projects but this one may be a little over my head. Is it possible to show an example of how the scripting looks in full when trying to set a variables value to false? It would also be amazing if you could show me an example of how the script looks when setting up the setChildIndex. I sincerely appreciate this extra amount of hand holding if possible.
