I need some help. My Action Scripting is rusty and I haven't
messed with flash in a few years. But I am using AS1.0/2.0 on flash
CS3 (and AS3.0 scripting is fine if it applies).
I want to tell a button to play a certain amount of frames
after being clicked and when those frames play an animation happens
and then when it is done the play head will jump to the correct
frame for that button.
So lets say I'm on frame 20 which is the destination of
Button B. When I click on Button A my AS will tell it to play the
next 6 frames which contains my MovieClip animations and when it
hits that 6th frame the play head will move to frame 6 which is the
destination of Button A.
IS THIS POSSIBLE?? I don't see why not I just can't figure it
out. :P If any body has the solution or a better solution to this
that would be great!
there are many ways to do this. the easiest to code is to
assign a variable in your button (say nextframe=6, the destination
fo button A) and cause the timeline to play. then in the last frame
of your outro, use a movieclip.gotoAndPlay(nextframe)
