View Full Version : help....mouse pointer

03-02-2001, 12:44 PM
I want to create a banner in flash on the mouse over of which I want small animations to play but the mouse pointer should remain the same and not change into that hand.

For example, In Startv.com http://www.startv.com/eng/sales/index.html

Could someone please tell me how to do this in flash4.

Thanks in advance

Place the following action on a MC:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
if (this.hitTest(_root._xmouse,_root._ymouse,true)) {

Good luck.

PS: Sorry I've just read your thread again, you want the Flash 4 version, this is for Flash 5. I don't know if it's possible in Flash 4. Many apologies!

You can do it using Flash 4 if you have a loopin MC which checks the _x and _y of the mouse, and when they are within the confines of your button-like MC, you tell the MC to play...

If you can't code that yourself, reply me and I'll help out... It will use Get Property a lot.
