2nd line should target _level0 and should use gotoAndPlay (case counts):
Hi, Thank you. Although I can copy paste your code into the actionscript field, Can you tell me how to do it with the "script assist" enabled? if it's not too much to ask. thanks!
whoa, that's a major pain if you're going to use script assist. i had no idea how hard it is to use that until you asked your question and i opened flash to try it:
actionscript 2.0 classes/Movie/MovieClip/Methods/gotoAndPlay
object is _level0.
but i'd strongly recommend not using script assist. flash automatically colors it methods and keywords as you type them so you can catch typos/case mismatches etc by looking at the keywords as you type. if they're not colored, you mistyped. now check in the flash help file.
hi sir, yeah I get that a lot. But I started learning flash since 4 and never really had a formal study of actionscripting. I also didn't bother to look for changes but I have purchased 5.0, MX, MX2000( i think) and 8.
I'm still the old simple ac scripter which uses the same old gotoandplay, telltarget ifframeloaded loadmovienum and unloadmovie :)
For me it seems that kind of actionscripting which has dots and underscores are like programming to me. I started as a designer basically circles thru photoshop, flash and dreamweaver, lately I'm into PHP and MySQL but never had any programming languages before so I find really amazing when people just tell these codes by underscores and dots all in one line and voila, what I wnated to achieve is done in a zap.
oh i understand using "easy mode" from flash 5 days when flash had helpful code suggestions. but once mm released flash mx (and easy mode disappeared) it became more difficult to avoid learning actionscript.
