Red face Mobile interface trouble

Pen always down.

I'm starting with flash and have created a simple set of buttons.

On my Nokia 770 however, which does the full flash thing, the 'mouse' (pen) is always down when used. So when i use the mouse 'Over' button state, it does not work when the mouse entered from outside the button.

You can compare this by a clicking outside a button and then drag over that button. You don't get an 'Over' state that way.

Is there a solution to this?
Can the 'Hit' outside the button be ignored so no drag is started or is there another solution?
Why isn't this a common problem in flash and penbased/tablet computers??

Thanks for any time, Trump

Howdy and Welcome...

I think that's the nature of most of the pen/stylus based devices...

You have to press somewhere on the screen to start moving the pen, and it does not really give you an option to decide when you are actually rolling over some object, and that's not the same as the one you can see in the monitor where you don't have to press somewhere to start something... It's just different type of user interaction and you have to be sitting in the seat of that user base to design something rather than thinking from the desktop chair...

Default Howdy

And thanks!

But sure, as that's the nature of those devices, where is the rest of the developers that encountered/solved this?

I'm asking this because I'm thinking from that mobile/pen/finger platform :-)

I'm looking at the messages found by a search on 'onmousedown'. If I find it there after all I'll report it here.
