Hi, I have a basic working knowledge of Actionscript and Flash and have what I hope is a simple question. I need to make an interactive map that when you rollover a button a little bubble pops up with info, like google maps. I know how to do all of that, but what I want is to have the map, which is not the button that triggers the roll over event of the bubble popping up, to scale bigger like it's zooming in when the user hovers over the pinpoint button.

Any ideas?

Hmm, I'll give that a shot. My map is in AS2. I don't want the map to zoom in when the mouse is over it unless the mouse is over a certain pinpoint though and I think what you're suggesting might make the map zoom no matter where the mouse is. Can I add a button to the map that is underneath the button of the pinpoint so they sync up? Also, if I want the map to zoom out when off the pinpoint should I just add a rollout function?

Thanks for your help!

Create a button with the up,over,down frames empty. The hit frame you put the shape of the button that when you rollover the button it will zoom the map. So you just place the button over the map where you want the pinpoint to be.

If you want to zoom out, just like you said, just add a rollout function.
