    Buttons and movie clips

    webmstir Level 1
      I'm sorry if this question has already been answered. I searched the archives and couldn't find what I was looking for. Basically what I want to do is use a button to play a movie when pressed. The problem is I can't figure out how to do it.

      1. I've created 3 buttoms and three movie clips.
      2. I created a layer for the background which has text on it that says "press to view".
      3. I created another layer for the buttons and one layer for the button text
      4. I created an actions layer and put a stop action in frame 1
      5. I added another layer for the movie clips on frame 2 (mailflow_mc), frame 3 (reject_mc), frame 4 (fullrate_mc) and labeled each frame accordingly.
      6. Add action script for each button:

      on (press) {
      gotoAndPlay("reject");
      }

      When I play the movie the animations will not load and they flash fast. Any suggestions?

      Thanks,
      Mimi
