I'm trying to make an interactive presentation reminiscent of
powerpoint but I can't get the prev and next buttons to work.
Here's what I have...
a MC with all the images (sudo slides). The timeline begins
with a stop action on frame1. Each image has a 15-frame Alpha fade
which has a frame label on the first frame and a stop action on the
last frame (so frame label "img1" goes from frame2 to frame16 then
stops, frame label "img2" goes from frame17 to frame 32 then stops,
Outside of that MC in the main timeline I have the buttons
prevBtn and nextBtn. What I need to do is get those buttons to go
to the next label.
I know I can do gotoAndPlay("img2"); but I want the button to
go to the next frame label no matter what it's named.
I tried an array but I've never dealt with arrays before so I
don't think I did it right. The code I have for the array is:
mylabels = new array("img1","img2","img3");
currentLabel = 0;
//Go to next label
gotoAndPlay(mylabels[(currentLabel + 1)]);
//Go to previous label
gotoAndPlay(mylabels[(currentLabel - 1)]);
I got this from someone else who was trying to help but I
don't know where to put any of it or if it will even do what I
I've also tried to use the _currentFrame+15 or
_currentFrame-15 but that doesn't work either. I only know a small
amount of AS so I may have done that one wrong too....
Any help would be appreciated. (btw, i'm using AS2 and Flash
