its been a while since ive used flash,and im struggeling with a command id normaly do within seconds.
im trying to add a stop action on one of my layers,i know the action script is stop ( ) ;
but i cant recall how to add it only to the particular layer.
im affecting the whole scene when i add a new layer and do the action.
how do i get around this?
The stop() function is a timeline command, not a layer function, so if you place it on any layer of a timeline the entire timeline will stop at whatever frame that it is in. If you want something to stop independently of anything else in a timeline that is animating you need to create it as a movieclip with its own timeline that you can command to stop().
