Scrollable menu with mask

I have created a scrollable menu (from the kirupa tutorial) with a left and right button. I want different text to appear when you rollover the four buttons that form the menu but the text needs to appear over the space where the fourth button should be, i.e. where it masks out the excess menu. I’ve tried dynamic text with the action script:

on (rollOver) {
Text_Area.text = “<Insert the text here>”;

and have also tried making the over state of the button a mc and inserting the text on the separate timeline but the text only appears in the mask. If anyone can help I would worship them for eternity! :slight_smile:
