Hi, I'm using Flash 8 Professional and am trying to make a
movie clip play and stop from the main timeline using gotoAndPlay.
I got this to work on another movie clip, but it just doesn't work
with this one. On a given keyframe I put:
to make it play to a certain point until it reaches the
script in itself that says stop(); Then, later I add
To make it skip the stop until it reaches the end of its
timeline and hits stop();
However, nothing happens! It completely ignores my script.
Anyone know why?
attached to the timeline of valve_w's first frame place
trace(this). and below your trace(valve_w) statement place trace("g
"+this) and we'll be able to resolve your issue(s).
but if you're sure you have the path/name correct then your
goto statement is executing before valve_w exists. in particular,
if you're loading an external swf into valve_w, you can't control
the external swf's timeline until loading is complete.
