How to complete hideObject from a dropShadowFilter?

:mrgreen:_ :geek:_ :ugeek:_ :ph34r:


I have two layers.

On bottom layer, I have several buttons,

on top layer, I have a shape inside "test" MovieClip


import com.greensock.*;
import com.greensock.easing.*;

TweenMax.to(test, 0, {dropShadowFilter:{color:0x000000, alpha:0.6, blurX:5, blurY:5, strength:1, angle:135, distance:4, inner:true, hideObject:true}});


This code works very nice

but I can't have access at the buttons of bottom layer.


How to complete hide the "test"? - stay visible the inner shadow and access bottom layer buttons? :roll:


I was testing various properties with no chance :cry:

Hope there is a solution :D

It's not worked for me.


Also I import


import flash.ui.Mouse;
import flash.display.MovieClip;
import flash.events.*;


and still the same.

perhaps I misunderstood you. attached is a file that I set up as follows:


cover has dropShadow applied.

button sits in layer under cover.

button is still clickable.


if your problem persists please upload a very simple fla illustrating your problem.

Hi Carl..!!

I don't like my previous reply :unsure:


I should very thank you for the code and the idea.


My first code, was a sample of my project.

Forgot to say that "originaly" MovieClip is inside 2 mcs from the root.

Also it's on the second scene of the flash movie.


After that, I make a new fla with posted code, and it works!!!!


But not inside my project


Any idea?


Also thanks for the attached files.
