    How do I label a frame

    bobthree
      I am using Director 8 and I am trying to figure out how to label a frame. I already know how to create markers, but I can not find how to makers. I am creating a electronic report and I want to have auto numbering. I have markers 1 thru 50 with three frames inbetween. I run the following script and all I get is 0. I have a cast member "pagenumbering"

      on enterFrame
      member("pagenumbering").line[1]=the framelabel
      end

      I either need to figure out how to label frames, or, how to insert the marker label into my text. Any help would be appreciated.

          Are you asking how to get the most recent frameLabel? That would be

          mostRecentLabel=getProp(the markerlist, marker(0))


          Also, to delete a frameLabel, set it to 0, not an empty string.
