    Timeline Control in Nested movieClips

    anglim_wp

      Hi All,

       

      I have gotten help from KGLAD, Nedwebs, rustyK on countless AS2 & AS3 problems, and now i am back!

       

      I am having a heck of a time trying to control a movieClip's timeline which is inside of another movieClip. I am using a third movieClip for the controls.

       

      I had it working fine when controlling the movieClip's timeline from the other movieClip when it was on the same stage as the Control using this code:

       

      btn_BZ_Stainless.onRelease = function()

                {

                          _root.mc_BEZELS.gotoAndStop("BZ_Stainless");

                          gotoAndStop("BZ_Stainless");

            }

       

      Now I became forced to put the movieClip "mc_BEZELS" inside of another movieClip called "bitmap" and i cannot communicate with "mc_BEZELS" anymore.

       

      I tried _root.bitmap._root.mc_BEZELS,  _root.child.mc_BEZELS, and numerous other combinations, but no luck... Any suggestions or help would be much appreaciated!

      Thank you in advance.
