    Doh! You meant on the stage of course. I clearly need more sleep than I've been getting.

    Anyway... not quite there, yet.

    When I preview that, it constantly rotates through all the pages until I hit a button, then changes pages as it should do, on the respectve button clicks. However... it doesn't display the form on any of the pages, let alone the page it's supposed to display on???

    I reset the x-y coordinates to those I had originally, so when it was supposed to display... it should have done so in the same place I had it.

    In the compiler errors info pane it's giving me the following output:

    "Mouse events are permitted only for button instances"

    Does that make any sense to you? I thought they were button instances???

    Ok undo anything you've done back to what you had sent me. You need to make these changes in the Actions Panel, not the Library. (Press F9 to bring it up) I'll post the FLA as well on my site for you to load.

    Ok, mate... I' back to the start, again.

    I've got the fla you posted, exactly as my original aside from the script I had on the form layer having been removed, yes?

    So... for the idiot that needs proofing against... what's next!

    It is what you posted with my changes.

    Really one of the best things you can do is to familiarize yourself with how the various parts of Flash function. There is a sticky thread at the top of this forum with tutorials, and I would look at some that help to explain the basic functionality of Flash. Its not simple! I've done this for years, but at first it was hard to learn how the parts interacted with each other.

    Also, if you do tutorials (or if you get a book, which is always good too), start with new files.

    Also, there are a lot of things which could ultimately improve your file, such as finding ways to reduce it from 1/3 of a MB. However these are not along this thread topic and should be other threads.

    Thumbs up

    Aha! At first I was confused there, as I couldn't see where you'd placed the actions, but... now I see them, and how it works.

    I should have got that long before now.

    Thanks so much for your patience, Jeremy. It is genuinely appreciated. Will have to make that at least a couple of beers.

    I'm not planning on doing many things that require me to mess around with flash, but after that carry on... I'll definitely read a few of the tutorials to at least get the basics, instead of relying on my usual routine of just being able to figure it out by pulling it apart and putting it back together again.

    Once again... Thanks!

    Don't forget my offer, and keep me posted on your travel plans.

    Many thanks,

    Del.
