[thelist] ::| Simple Flash Pull Down Menu | ::

I  would like/have to build a very simple pull down menu in flash, much like
a html pull down menu.  I thought this was a very common task, but I cannot
find a tutorial or a way to do it.  I need it to be just like the "Choose a
category..." pull down menu at the top of <http://www.evolt.org/>.  I need
it to look and function like that, but be done in Flash.

I need the menu to have a few items, for example, Item 1, Item 2, Item 3,
Item 4, and then once a user selects an item from the pull down menu and
releases the mouse, they are taken to a specified URL.  Each Item has a
unique URL.

Is this really all that hard?  Why can't I find a simple tutorial for this?
I am using Flash MX 2004, but it has been about 2 years since I have been
involved in Flash development...I am a good bit rusty.  Can someone please
help out, or point me to a tutorial.

Thanks a bunch,

Designer/Illustrator/Rusty Flash Developer
