OK tis likw this

1. You hover over a top panel
2. It rises to show another panel with 3 buttons (links) smaller than the panel.
3. You roll out and the panel closes.

Whats the way to do it :roll:

Thanks :)

just make a button that has a movieclip contained on the button's mouseover of an animation of the panel opening up with the 3 smaller buttons inside, then closing. Then put an onclipevent in the middle of the movieclip (when the panel is completely open) that will stop the clip if the mouse is within the MC, and play it if it is not.

If you need to know how to write the AS for it, email me and I'll hack it out real quick, but you should be able to handle it if you're in web design :)

Its a bit like that Influx, imagine a space ship type nav when you hover over it, it opens vertically to reveal the console beneath, beneath it, is another (say black) panel with 3 buttons in that area, i dont want either the top panel that moves or the one undearth clickable only the top panel responds the mouseover.

I had some idea of doing it, but then got confused, I made the buttons over state a movie clip by dragging one from the library i made on the stage, but only managed to make it blink.

Fotbon you got it, but why does it need the onClipevent in the middle, and when it reaveals the undearth part do i just layer the buttons on top the movie or not?

Thanks for the help, I am just getting used to Flash. :D

It needs the onclipevent stop command because otherwise when your mouse was over the button, it would play a constant loop of it opening and closing. This way it will play the open animation, stop when it's open, and continue to play when your mouse leaves the box. If, as you said, you wanted the top panel NOT to be a button, in fact, it's much simpler--just make the inside MC (plays first frame when mouse is over, stops middle frame when mouse is over, plays middle frame when mouse leaves).

As for the inside buttons, yeah, just stick em anywhere inside the popup MC :)

Don't have MSN, I'm afraid, but I hope I can still be of help

sincerely,
wyatt

the link I gave you is what you want. You're trying to use
buttons and it's far more complicated than using different MC's
and some AS. :)

same tutorial i gave you, just change it to on(release) instead
of on(rollOver). That tutorial will give you all the basic concepts
you need to create something like that yourself. :)

Cheers, you know the first panel what will it be, then if i dont want it a button, a mc, but how do you make it so the cursor doesnt become a hand, and only activates when hovered.
