I've been building a flash movie ala Paul Trani's instructional vids on making a simple flash interface from adobe.tv.
What I'm doing is inserting some timeline navigation snippets to control the timeline with buttons. I'm encountering a problem with the stop() snippet. The flash player appears to ignore all timeline navigation snippets that appear AFTER the stop() snippet. so If I place a stop() on frame 1, the flash player ignores all the navigation snippets that occur later in the timeline. it stays stopped on the first frame!
any advice would be appreciated!
The stop() snippet is working perfectly. It is a timeline command that stops the playhead in its tracks. If you happen to have code assigned to things further down the timeline, then you need to get to those frames for the code there to have any effect. What are you expecting to have happen? What would you want to use to get you to move out of frame 1 besides not having the stop() command in it?
I think I didn't really understand the code thing -- I thought about your answer and figured out how to move out of the first frame after some trial and error.
