i hope this is the right forum for this qusetion...
i'd appreciate it if anyone could tell me how the following www.group94.com
effects are acheived:
1. when you rollOver the "menu" area the whole black box eases out of nowhere and the menu buttons appear. when you rollOut the box goes back to being virtually blank again (save for some text).
2. when you rollOver the main scroll boxes or text box the _alpha settings increase. when you rollOut they decrease to their original settings.
i have tried doing this using hidden buttons (and rollOver/rollOut) and the hitTest method but a funny thing occurs with both methods that i cannot fathom...
...the longer i stay over the box, the longer it take for the _alpha setting to return to its original state when i rollOut
any help would be greatly appreciated
