I purchased Flash Pro 8 recently and still a rookie at using
it. Could anyone help me with the following problem? I am creating
a Flash doc for our robotics class. There are going to be
approximately 10 scenes. The opening scene will be a menu where you
can press a button to go to a specific subject which would be on a
separate scene. For example, button 1 would go to scene 1, button 2
to scene 2, button 3 to scene 3, etc. Everything worked fine until
I decided to delete a scene I decided not to use, then all my
buttons quit working. Button 1 which should have gone to scene 1
now goes to scene 3 for example. The action script says that it
should be navigating to scene 1 though. In fact, all my buttons
navigate to different scenes than the ones they are told to go with
the actionscript. Any help would be appreicated.
That is called a bug .. its been in flash for years and
years, and they've
never fixed it.
that is why I tell everybody not to use scenes in
actionscript (ie the
special gotoAndPlay and gotoAndStop functions that take a
scene name) ..
they are buggy, and inserting or deleting scene can stuff
Solution: do NOT use scene names .. and to help make things
easier to write
and maintain, use frame labels.
