Jason, I wasn't arguing anything except that IMHO using them makes code more readable in some circumstances. It's not an either/or.

We can agree to differ.

That still isn't an argument to use them in my opinion, personally I think the

preference in coding style, not that there are situations that specifically 
call for their use.

Ok, what's a good case to use them?  Just curious, I have never found a

Sometimes (depending on what your buttons do), it seems rather artificial to 
have to fabricate a stand-alone function to handle an event when the action 
required is very simple.

I used to always create named event handler functions and realised I was 
adopting some fixed pattern that was actually obfuscating my code unnecessarily 
in some situations.

The OP was using an event handler simply to control the timeline and 
manufacturing a named function to do this very specific thing seems 
unnecessary. With an inline function you can see straight off what happens when 
the event is handled, without looking up the handler function to see what it 
does.

Yeah, this is weird and unnecessary. Anonymous functions are recommended 
against in AS3.
Really?

I used to be of the same opinion, but certainly not as a blanket rule.
It all depends.

Try removing:

button1_btn.mouseChildren = false;
button2_btn.mouseChildren = false;

Your code is a bit convoluted!

divers_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, function() {
gotoAndStop("divinedivers"); });
scuba_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, function() {
gotoAndStop("scubadudes"); });

divers_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, function() {
divers_btn.gotoAndStop("OVER");});
..

Hello All,
Long time. If your available at the moment, I could use your help
with some AS3.
I finally got an AS3 job! Yay! But I am stuck on the most simple of
things.
All I am trying to do is make some buttons work... lol Here is my
code.

button1_btn.buttonMode = true;
button2_btn.buttonMode = true;
button1_btn.useHandCursor = true;
button2_btn.useHandCursor = true;
button1_btn.mouseChildren = false;
button2_btn.mouseChildren = false;

button1_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, function() {
changeSelect(1); }); button2_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,
function() { changeSelect(2); });
button1_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, function() {
toggleB1(2); }); button2_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER,
function() { toggleB2(2); });
button1_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT, function() {
toggleB1(1); }); button2_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT,
function() { toggleB2(1); });

function changeSelect(p):void {
           switch (p) {
               case 1:
               this.gotoAndStop("divinedivers"); //goto frame
divinedivers in this MC
               break;
               case 2:
               this.gotoAndStop("scubadudes"); //got frame scubadudes
in this MC
               break;
           }
}

function toggleB1(f):void {
           button1_btn.gotoAndStop(f); //toggle this button MC frame
}

function toggleB2(f):void {
           button2_btn.gotoAndStop(f); //toggle this button MC frame
}

Why does AS3 have to make things so difficult for something so simple??
What the heck am I doing wrong???

Also, how do you use just a button instead of a mc?
I tried using just a button and it wouldn't even switch to the over
state that is inside the button!!?

AS2 is just so much more simple... sigh*

TIA,
