Button behind a button

In Flash 8: I have a button behind a button. So far I can see both buttons. One straight up, and the other one curved. I would like the behind curved button to not show until the first button is passed over by the mouse. That does not seem to be working.
I would like action added to the back button without disturbing the front button.
The first button does disappear with mouse over. But that's about it.

you should not be using button objects... you should be using Movieclips and programming the roll over states with Actionscript.

this way you can run functions that utilize conditional statements in any way you want.

I actually would like the front button to show on startup of the movie. Then on mouse over I would like it to disappear and the back button will show. On mouse click to either one I would like to go to another page.  I want it to look like the button pops up. I think I will just make it a moving button.
Thanks

You should actually use a Tween class for this effect... when you roll over something, you can just Tween the clip to the size you want.

here is a very simple Class to implement... you just copy the "gs" folder to the same directory as your main SWF, and then use this code to access it...

AS 2.0 = http://blog.greensock.com/tweenmaxas2/
AS 3.0 = http://blog.greensock.com/tweenmaxas3/

import gs.TweenMax;
import gs.easing.*;


unless you are wanting the image to be different.  if that is the case, then you would just have one master MovieClip, that has your other two MovieClips inside of it...

you use the master clip as the one that is used with code like this...

masterClip.onMouseOver = function(){
  this.clip1._alpha = 0;
  this.clip2._alpha = 100;
}

masterClip.onMouseOut = function(){
  this.clip1._alpha = 100;
  this.clip2._alpha = 0;
}

masterClip.onRelease = function(){

  trace("you clicked on the button");

}


the above is basic AS 2 code, please let me know if you need the AS 3.0 code...  I just assumed you would be using AS 2.
