I am having a problem using Event Propagation. I have a movieclip with a Mouse Over and Mouse Out function attached to it. The visual result I am seeking is this:
This SWF was created by using twelve instances of a movieclip and me writing twelve separate functions and event listeners for each instance. I would like to create this same effect with over a hundred instances of this movieclip so writing that much code is inefficient.
Instead I filled another movieclip with instances of the one I want (mc_light) and then I wrote this action script;
It’s not working. I have tried several variations but none work. This seems like a fairly simple procedure so I am a little perplexed. The movieclip mc_light has its own timeline with two labels, “over” and “out”.
This directory contains two FLA’s:
The one named “bars2.fla” is the one I am trying to get to work.
What am I doing wrong? Is what I want to do even possible?
Thanks in advance for any input!
