    How do i change mouse cursor animation ???

    hi guys, I learnt how to change a normal mouse cursor
    into something different when the mouse cursor is located
    within the flash file (SWF)

    i was wandering whether it is possible to change the mouse cursor
    to something else if the user clicks the mouse cursor.

    example: the mouse cursor is alphabet A, when user clicks the mouse cursor, it changes to B, once the user lift off his mouse, it changed back to A.


    i tried searching for a tutorial on this in kirupa but they don't have any.

    How are you doing it now?
    Basically you hide the mouse cursor and then attach a movieclip to _xmouse, _ymouse and update that onEnterFrame and then you can just change the movieclips frame when the mouse button is pressed.

    you can create the cursor object as a button within a movieclip....and for the button, put the animations in up, down,.. states....Since the mouse is present at the exact position of this button, it will detect mouse press release etc, and behave accordingly. The only thing to keep in mind is that, since it is at mouse coordinates, the default state of the button is not the UP state but the OVER state.

    absolutely no need at all to do that

    Code:
    _root.onMouseUp = function ()
        {
        _root.mc.gotoAndPlay(_root.mc._currentframe + 1)
        }
