I have a Flash project which has about 90% of its code in the first frame, on a layer called 'actions'. the remeainder of the code is attached to several buttons throughout the project. I want to take the code attached to the buttons, and paste it into the first frame, 'actions' layer. what I want to know is how to do it, and still have the buttons function properly. This is in AS2, and will eventually be converted to AS3, when I get all the working code on the first frame.
I don't know how to reference it, from the first frame of 'actions' layer.
For example, on one button, the code is one line: gotoAndStop(this._parent._name);
On another button, the code is:
first = true;
if (this._name == active)
id = setInterval(aa, 10, this);
I assume I reference it through its instance name, but not sure what follows.
(Or, would someone be kind enough to convert it from AS2 to AS3?)
are your buttons true buttons or movieclip buttons? and do your buttons exist on frame 1 where the code will be placed?
