I have movie clips on stage that I am using as menu items. When I press one, I want the others to fade out. Now I want to create an event listener to handle this. I have been reading all the help files and books about listeners and I cant seem to get it to work. It seems that listeners only work with components. Can flash listen for a movie clip being clicked? What am I doing wrong? I used the model for a listener from the help files and just replaced the code and instance name but it still doesnt work. Right now I am just using trace "button Pressed" to see if the listener works so its not a problem with my code.

Any help would be appreciated.
