1)Well here's what I figured out so far; got the panel to drop down when I rollover at a Ymouse of 70. However, I want to put an input form in the panel; but if the users mouse goes below a Ymouse of 70 the panel slides back-up.
So you say '"Well just make the Ymouse more than 70 or whatever the length of the form field"'
Here's the problem: I plan on putting a FullScreen button on my Main Stage (about 1/4 distance from the top).
When the user moves their mouse anywhere near that FS button, it's going to bring down the panel. I don't want that.
What I want is for the panel to slide back-up when the users mouse is at the bottom of the panel. Much like the claudiesong.com site.
2)I did a google search on how to create a down/disable button state. There were so many out there but none that I could understand without an actual working fla file. What I wanted to do is when the viewer first rolls over the panel; the "Helen Newman" title is already highlighted with content.
I created a movie clip button with an instance name of 'btn1', and another movie clip inside of that one with an instance name 'btnStates_mc' and inside of that is my timeline animation(which doesn't work when I place my button on the main stage). Could you please take a look at my fla file.
Am I making any sense?
Thanks for any help you can throw my way.
