I have several movies authored in Flash MX which have a
single frame main timeline with buttons that control various
movieclips in the frames using _root.movieclip.goToAndPlay() etc.
However, as I am gradually revising these and republishing as
Flash 8 , I have noticed that clicking the button with an action of
_root.movieclip.goToAndPlay() no longer works, whether I publish
for Actionscript 1 or 2. If I publish as Flash 6 from within Flash
8 Professional they work fine.
Obviously the syntax has changed, but I must be dense because
I can't figure it out from the documentation.
Would be very grateful if anyone can help me out with this.
Thanks for that - yes, I am dense, particularly as I spend a
lot of time working in case-sensitive Linux environments. Checking
my code, I noticed that I had a mixture of upper/lowercase
renditions of goToAndPlay/gotoAndPlay in there.
However, it makes me think it wouldn't hurt if the debugger
threw up an error if you mis-spelt a function. Or would that make
likfe too easy???
