Flash AS3 movieclips as buttons [EN]

Somewhere i made the choice to use movieclips as buttons. It seems easier somehow. Most important thing you have to do is; use the next actionscript to change the mousecursor on mouseover.

McName.buttonMode=true;
McName.mouseChildren=false;

You can name framelables inside of the movieclip to respond as if it was a button. If you use the following framelabels: _up, _over, en _down the movieclip will work as button.

The following code is needed to make the button work:

McNaam.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, FunctionNaam); //listener for the MC with instance name: McNaam
 
//the function for the above MC
function FunctionNaam(evt:MouseEvent) {
   gotoAndStop("ruimte1");//go to framelabel ruimte1 and stop over there
}
