roll_over & roll_out problems

Hello, I’m a newbie to the max. First off, I’m thankful that there are forums like this to help me out, it’s very challenging but since I’m just beginning, I need all the help I can get.


btnGroup.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, target, false, 0, true);
btnGroup.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT, out, false, 0, true);
btnGroup.mouseEnabled = true; 
btnGroup.buttonMode = true; 

var btnName:String = ""; 

function target(evt:MouseEvent):void {
     btnName =;
function out(evt:MouseEvent):void {

I’ve created all the movieclip buttons, and I put them all on stage to create a btnGroup. I’m not quite sure if they (btn1, btn2, etc.) have instance names EACH, so that might be a problem. The btnGroup is the one on stage, none of the btns are. The btnGroup has an instance name, and I’ve created empty frame labels. The problem, when I Test Movie, is that it just plays through the movie and does not stop anywhere, nor is there a “hand” to click any of the buttons. btn1 is the only one prepared for the roll over effect as of now, and thats why there are no more keyframes in the text1 layer.

When there is a rollover, I want static text to appear and the rollout is to start over, empty on stage.
