I've done this with tell target and set property 'visibility' . I
created MC which I let fade in (not fade out actually) I putted a
stop in the first empty frame of the MC and on the last frame.
On stage I dragged the MC and set the property visability to false.
On the button I set property vis. true (and for the other MC's false)
tell target and play.
This workes nice but..........I'm not a programmer but learning and
when I did this using 11 buttons it was to much on the tell target I
think because my Mac crashed totally. So ther should probbably a
quicker way but this for start.
