    very basic beginner question

    Chemistry guy

      I'm very new to Flash. I'm converting some old Director/Shockwave animations to Flash, and I'm setting up a navigation system. I've reached what I suspect is the first of my frustrating problems.

       

      I have a simple animation that runs from from 1 to frame 110, and I'd like it to loop until the user clicks a button. The timeline goes on beyond frame 110 with other stuff. In an "actions" layer in frame 110, I have the following

       

      gotoAndPlay(1);

       

      I thought that this would lead to the looping, but it doesn't. The movie just moves on beyond frame 110. Just as a test, I put the following at frame 110 instead.

       

      stop();

       

      and when I test the movie, it doesn't stop. The commands don't seem to be seen.

       

      What's going on?

       

      Thanks
