Write the function in a frame action space and call the function from the button action.
hmm not really an option, it's given me an idea though that might work.
the thing is it is a set of buttons within a movie, that movie will be used in various places around the main movie [i'm not too familiar with proper lingo here]
is there not a way to say 'read this list of things to do but dont start untill you have read them all' so to speak.
Rob's right - create a method in the main timeline that contains all of the items to do, then call that method from any of your buttons - write it dynamically so that it will work from an instance, and pass parameters to the method if needed. in this way the method will 'always' exist even if the movies change frames or the buttons 'move' or swap depths. in this way it doesn't matter what happens to any of the items on stage, the method will always run to completion.
ok that sounds like it might work.
quick question. in another thread i asked about importing RSS feeds, i've noticed when this has been asked in other forums it's largely ignored. is it a stupid question or just way too hard to answer?
