I'm just learning Flash at a local college and my instruction is not being very helpful, so i'm hoping someone can help me. I need to insert a "start" button that will start the movie. I have the button on a layer called "startButton". I inserted another layer and called it "stopMovie" - this is where I add a keyframe on the 1st from and the last frame and then add a actionscript to stopmovie on both frames.
The problem I'm having is when I select the 1st frame of the layer where the button is localed, I go to the actionscript window/global fuction/timeline and then I want to select "play" but the system has it grayed out so I can't select it. My only option is "goto". But that doesn't work. All I want the funtion to do is start playing when I click on the start button.
When I asked my instruction for help, he was not very helpful. I would have attached the file to this post, but that is not an option. I'm hoping you can help.
You should put your instructor to work for you. If you do not understand something, get the help your instructor is being paid to provide--having someone to stand next to you and guide you is far better than posting here and trying to explain what you are trying to do.
