I have a button in a flash movie that I need to validate
information (if statement) and then send the user to aother frame.
I have successfully used the attached code with a button made
from a symbol, but it is not working on the component.
I tried switching the button to be a symbol button and can
get it to move forward using ("on release... goAndPlay...) but I
have not been able to make that button be not visible prior to
needing it. That is, the code "_root.valid_btn.visible = false;"
has no effect.
I could go with either button type, but need it to be able to
be visible when I need it and not when I don't and need it to
follow the command to play after validation.
Can you help? What is wrong with the action script?
