                Hi all

       

      First post, good to be here

       

      I have the following

       

      STAGE

                SYMBOL_1

                     DIV_PLAY

                          MOUSEUP(COMMAND)

                     DIV_STOP

                          MOUSEUP (COMMAND)

       

                SYMBOL_2

                     DIV_ANIMATION_1

                          ANIMATION_1_START (TIMELINE POSITION)

                     DIV_ANIMATION_2

                          ANIMATION_2_START (TIMELINE POSITION)

       

       

      I would like to do the following:

       

      play "SYMBOL_2" - "DIV_ANIMATION_1" - "ANIMATION_1_START" from within "SYMBOL1" - "DIV_PLAY" with the mouseup command

       

       

      I have tried doing this with the help of this post http://forums.adobe.com/thread/964882 but i cant crack it!!

       

      I know that i can sym.getComposition().getStage().getSymbol("div_animation_1").play();  from within "div_play" but how do i access a point on the timeline and play from there...

       

      many thanks!!
