AHHHHHHHHH! Help with mouse position to control animation

Hello all,

SO I have two mc buttons, one inside acting as a normal button the other for effect. Now I know all about how to make them work seperate but that is not the problem.

When i go over the imbedded button the effect button on the outside wants to go to the up state.

SO i figured that if I used a mouse event to tell the button on the outside to stay at over as long as it was in a specified area. That way I can keep it at the over state while it goes over the imbedded button.

I hope I haven’t lost you.

so now I can’t get the x value and the y value to call the function to the over state in that area. I’m a new and it is driving me nutty. Here is my fla

Thank you thank thank you.
