    Timeline control in AS3 on Frame Load? Jeff

    jefferisp7 Level 1

      This is what I hate about flash upgrades :-)  What was simple is now documented by 15 pages of chicken scratches.  I have searched through the docs and am just lost. 

       

      What I want to do was simple enough in AS2: onClipEvent (EnterFrame)

      {

      _root.gotoAndPlay("2");

      }

       

      But can't be done now.   It doesn't work as a frame action either without the onClipEvent.

      All I want to do is go from the last frame of the timeline to frame 2 and skip the preloader.

       

      How the heck do I do that in AS3?   I've searched online and cannot find the method, and perhaps search terms don't work. Anything I can find applies to AS2.

       

      Thanks in advance.

      BTW, for some reason I cannot apply any actions to an MC on the stage. Weird.
