Button hover bring to front

Have been searching for ages but cant find a working solution.

 

I have 5 buttons, the hover states of the buttons are bigger than the original so when rolled over they the other buttons overlap the hover state. (See jpg.) I want to bring the button that is being hovered over to the front.

 

This is the code I have been trying but doesnt work...

 

this.bringToFront = function(e)
{
e.currentTarget.parent.addChild(e.currentTarget);
};

this.button_1.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_2.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_3.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_4.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_5.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);

Thanks for the file.

 

Yeah, you have an invalid reference (button_2) when adding listeners for the mouse over event.

 

It should be like this:

this.button_1.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
//this.button_2.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront); // this button doesn't exist
this.button_3.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_4.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_5.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_6.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_7.on("mouseov

Hi.

 

Call this.stop(); on the timeline where your code is located even if it has only one frame.

 

This is necessary to any modification regarding depth/index in the HTML5 canvas document.

Thanks for the image.

 

Do you mind uploading your FLA to a file sharing service (e.g.: Creative Cloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, WeTransfer) and paste the link here so that we can understand better what's going on?

this.button_9.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_10.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);
this.button_12.on("mouseover", this.bringToFront);

 

And the this.stop(); call is needed anyway.

the code you posted will always work IF the buttons all have the same parent.  ie, if the parents are different, you may need to bring the parents to the front, too.

By parent do you mean the layer each button is on? If so how do I bring the layer to the front?

i downloaded your fla.  

 

you have an error in your code and that's preventing ALL code from executing.  ie, you're not executing the code in your original post.

 

p.s. don't you check for error messages?
