Moving Buttons


This is my first post in the forums so I hope I don’t make too much of a fool of myself.

I used to be quite good with flash MX back in the days, now that I need to make a flash movie for a website I’m quite startled at how many things don’t work the way I recall them.

So here is what I am trying to do:

I have a Button Object, moving on a Motion Guide, that is Movieclip CirclingButton.

I have made a number of copies of CirclingButton with phase differences so that the circle has 6 buttons moving on it.

What I want to do is to have the circling stop when I move the mouse over one of the buttons, and being taking to a specific URL each button.

Now what happens in real life is:
when I use actionscript 3.0: each time I put the mouse on the buttons the circling goes back to frame 1.
when I use actionscript 3.0: my mouse is practically ignored.

I am puzzled by this behavior, and I guess it is because I haven’t been keeping up with flash. if someone could give me a quick “you’re doing this wrong, it should be this way” or a little crash course on how to do this I would be more than grateful.

Thanks in advance,
