hi fellow flashers, i need some direction. A have an mc and I want it to to remain still until the cursor touches it. I’d prefer it not be a button. Should i use an invisible button, tell target, I’m not sure. Right now I’m looking through tutorials maybe I’ll hit something.

well… using a button inside of the movie clip, or even converting the movie clip to a button is really the easiest way.

You could do without a button, but I dont know if it will yield the results you’re expecting.

Here’s some code inside a movie clip.

if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse,true)){
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp gotoandPlay(“startmove”);


In the movie clip, the first frame has a stop action. the second frame was named “startmove” (without quotes).

good luck!
