ActionScript 3: stage mouse out problem

hankknight asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I use the following ActionScript 3 functions to show and hide my controls:
public function showControlBar( e:MouseEvent )
			if(controlBarStatus==1) return;
			else {
			 myTween = new Tween( controlCont, "y", Regular.easeInOut, 25, 0, .7, true );

		public function hideControlBar(e:MouseEvent)
			if(controlBarStatus==0) return;

Open in new window

The controls should be shown when the cursor is over the movie and they should be hidden when the cursor is not over the movie.

I use this code to listen for the cursor position:

Open in new window

The problem is that when I place my cursor over the controls, gets stuck in a loop of hiding the controls then showing them again.

I have attached the source code including the .swf, .fla and .as files.
