    Controlling the root timeline from inside a MovieClip

      [preface] I'll apologize in advance. I'm a designer, not a developer. I know very little about actionscript so if you can help me out, please pretend like I know nothing.
      [/ preface]

      I just need actionscript to check the value of a variable when the end of a movie clip is reached and then call an action.

      Here's what I've got and it doesn't work. Please don't laugh.

      if (p == 1){
      tellTarget (_root) {
      play();
      }
      }
      else if (p == 0){
      stop();
      }

      (the "stop" on the "else if" is referring to the movie clip's timeline, not the root timeline... in case you're wondering)

      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
