I know how to go to a specific frame label in Flash, however
what I want to do is have one "onrelease" script for going to the
next frame label regardless of where I am in the movie. Director
allows you to do this rather easily with their timeline markers and
the "gonext" and "goprevious" lingo scripts. Is there an equivalent
in Flash? I found someone who figured out a way to let you do this
while authoring a flash movie (the LabelJumper at
), but I want to allow the viewer to do this.
The project is essentially a slideshow presentation that is
timed precisely to the audio file of the presenter. I have created
a presentation in Flash I"m happy with, however I'm struggling with
giving the user "next slide" and "previous slide" buttons. I know
that Flash 8 Pro has a new Slide Presentation mode, however this
solution has audio issues. It seems as if there should be a simple
way to go to the next or previous frame label. I found some
references in this and other forums to the "anchor" type of frame
label, however this only seems to apply to browser viewing. I'm
actually using Director to display my finished Flash presentation
as part of a CD-Rom project. I've got a nice slider and play/pause
solution working well, however getting the next and previous
buttons working has been a challenge.
I'm also trying to figure out a way to have Director display
text that tells the viewer which slide they are on. The simplest
way to do this seemed to be making the frame label for a slide be
something like "Slide 1 of 25", however getting Director to see and
use frame labels from Flash is harder than I thought it would be.
It seems that I have to set a variable in Flash that continually
checks to see what the current frame label is and then have
Director use "getVariable" to get it to display in the Director
file. I would appreciate any suggestions for how to do this as
well. Thanks folks for any assistance you can render.
