Subject: FLASH: Animated Flash Button

Hi Guys,

I have been trying to get my animated button to work with no luck. I
have looked into the flash documentation, but did not find what I need.

Here is what I want:

I have a button. When the mouse is over it, I want some letters
to fade in and out.

Here is what I did:

Created a button instance. In the "UP" state, there is just a
low alpha image. In the over state (and here is where the problem is), I
have two things. One is a sound, the other is another instance (graphic)
that I created which has the letters in question fading in and out. I
placed this instance into the "over state". However, on previewing it,
the sound works, but the fading letters instance does not seem to be
playing. Am I missing something easy here?

One last note. On the fading letters instance, I added a script that
tells it to go back to frame 1 and play, so that this instance would loop
forever as long as the mouse was over it. When the instance did not seem
to work, I removed that code in case that was the problem, but it still
did not work.

Any suggestions appreciated,
