Detecting Mouse Click


What I’m trying to do is very simple. I want to trigger an event handler whenever the mouse is clicked, no matter where on the stage it is clicked.

Right now, I’m using something like this:

stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, myEventHandler);

That works as long as the click is not on any MovieClips, but rather just the bare stage. My question is, how can I make the handler detect the click for anywhere including MovieClips rather than just the stage like it does now?

Thanks in advance!
