hitTest Problem.. Files Attached

Take a look at the FLA attached… what I’d like to have happen is pretty simple… when you mouse into the area that contains the hitTest the menu at the bottom slides up, and when you mouse out it slides back down.

I can’t just use onRollOver and onRollOut because the sliding movieclip contains other button instances that get in the way.

Right now the hitTest is working when I put a trace() on it, but the slide effect happens when I mouseOver and THEN mouseOut… really weird.

*Note I’m using the lmc_tween.as to control the sliding (also attached).

also note… If there’s an easier/better way of accomplishing this please feel free to embelish.

I’d love to have this done today so I can not think about it this weekend. Thanks!!
