I am working on a website for my graphic design class, and all is going well, however I have come to a problem that I just can't see why it isn't working the way I want it to.

(using Actionscript 2.0)
I have a MovieClip (let's say Hover1) animated as a mouseover (works fine) that animates, when hovered over, for a menu to appear (works fine) what I am having the trouble with is getting each of the menu items to function.

script used wrote:
menuitem1.onRollOver = function() {
menuitem1.gotoAndPlay("_over");
}

menuitem1.onRollOut = function() {
menuitem1.gotoAndPlay("_out");
}

I have this on the actions layer of Hover1, not on Scene 1. (this is what I am unsure of)


Desired effect: Each menu item (which is just text that has been made MovieClip Symbols) does not need to be a button, they are just mouseovers, which again animate more information to appear. (This I have already animated within the menu item symbols)

Problem: The menu animates fine when hovered over, the menu items, however, do not have any response at all. I think it may be a problem with where I have the scripting.

I can't find any problems with the labels or scripts themselves. Any help would be fantastic.

So it's like a drop-down menu? You mouse over a button and more menu items appear?

Have you tried using using frame numbers as opposed to frame labels?

Just tried that, no luck.

I'm sure it's a problem with where I have the actions.
I have the items organised as follows:
scene 1 > Hover1 > Menu items

and the actions for the menu item hovers are in the Hover1 actions.
I don't see how they would work on scene1 (I tried that too, though) but this is the only problem I can see. :cry:

Any chance you can share the FLA file?
