You're almost there. Try this:
(provided "one" is the symbol you want to play from your button in the other symbol)
Thank you so much. That was super quick.
i am going to go try this out.
worked like a charm.
and if i wnat to go inside of a symbol and then inside of another symbol is it
got it . it was the second one.
Yes, that's correct, you use nested getSymbol() methods to get to the symbol you want.
getChildSymbol() is a different beast - it returns an array of all child symbols for a symbol. But you'd have to iterate through the array to do anything else meaningful with it.
I had on other question.
I have a timeline full of symbols.
Most of the symbols have nested buttons and symbols that responed to those buttons.
I have the whole thing scrolling back and forth slowly.
I want to be able to change the direction it scrolls relitive to the half of the project your mouse is hoverning over.
I.E. hover over the right hand side and the timeline scrolls right and hover over the left hand side and it scrolls to the left.
I can achieve this buy placing transperant symbols that cover each half of the stage and addind either play or play reverse respectively.
But these transparent symbols block the symbolsand buttons and such that i have below them.
So then i though i will put the transperant symbols towards the bottom of the heirocracy and as i suspected the symbols in front of the transperant buttons block them.
is the some code i can add to the stage to achieve this?
thanks a million
