Flash MX’s New Properties for Movie Clips

Flash MX adds nine new movie clip properties. Six of them—_focusrect, enabled, focusEnabled, hitArea, trackAsMenu, and useHandCursor—enable and disable button-like functionality for movie clips and button movie clips. Flash 5 had a _focusrect global variable, which still exists in Flash MX. In addition, buttons and movie clips now have a _focusrect property.

For more information on _focusrect, see this chapter’s sidebar “Enabling and Disabling the Yellow Focus Rectangle,” page 337.
