    Simple Action Script

    ColdAir Level 1

      O.K. I have a swf file that uses a movie symbol in my library. Basically, the movie symbol contains a button in the first keyframe with an action script stop telling the movie to play on mouse press.

      I want the animation to begin when the user mouses down on the movie symbol. Here's the catch, the symbol is dragged to the main stage (or BIG timeline) and is tweened to move ACROSS the stage. I want it to stop moving ACROSS the stage when moused down. Therefore, it stops moving and plays a movie.

      When I create an actions layer and script this movie symbol, it always completely stops all the animation. I just want it to stop moving ACROSS the stage but play the animation when pressed.

      Please help.
