I am not sure how to get around this problem. I am using Flash CS5. I have been following a similar lesson plan on creating a photo gallery in "Adobe CS4 Classroom in a book" (the lesson with the pics of the peacock, for anyone who has this same book). Now, I have changed the tag in my Actions layer from "gotoAndStop" to "gotoAndPlay", and in the frame before each label, it says to add a "stop(); " command so that the animation stops at each pic when I click the button, instead of showing the entire animation at once. It will NOT allow me to do this! I get a text box that pops up and says it can't be done in ActionScript 3. What am I doing wrong?
you should be adding your code in the actions panel after clicking the frame where you want to apply your code.
if you click a frame, you can add code to the actions panel and, in the properties panel, you can add a frame label. but that (a label) is all that you can add in the properties panel for a frame, not code.
Please don't crosspost in these forums... it saves people from unnecessarily replying to an answered posting. See your AS3 forum posting for my response.
I didn't realize I had, lol. I thought my previous post hadn't posted properly, but now I see it. Thanks for letting me know. I'm not used to using forums :-).
