Flash AS3 Component Live Preview Timer

Hi, I'm working with Flash CS3 and I'm creating an AS3 component.  The component is designed to load text from an XML file, and then display it, and have an action on mouse over and mouse out.  The problem is, that flash doesn't allow a LivePreview to receive mouse events, so I tried making a timer that was only created when isLivePreview was true, I was able to get the timer to do what I wanted to when I didn't require isLivePreview, but it would not actually update the LivePreview at the right time.  Are timers not supported in a Live Preview SWF as well as mouse events?

When you say live preview, do you mean design time? If so, timers are not supported
