    Hi ..

    I was wondering if someone could help me, I'm not sure if
    I'm doing anything right !

    I have a site with about 3 'flash 5 pages; all in the one
    .swf with 3 scenes. Each scene is only one frame.

    In the first scene I have a menu bar which contains a
    popup menu. I want to link one of the sub-menu's buttons
    inside the popup menu to go to and play scene 2 but I can't get it to work.

    All my scenes have stop actions on the first frame, as
    they are only one frame. I'm not sure if this is right
    either, maybe this has something to do with it. But
    if I don't have the stop action on each scene, when I
    go to ctrl-testmovie in loops all the 3 scenes.

    Can anyone please help me with this at all?
    It would be soooooooooooooo much appreciated,

    Thankyou,

    torcha

    are you using this code on the buttons?

    on (release) {
    tellTarget ("/") {
    gotoAndPlay ("sceneName", 1);
    }
    }

    Hi Amalinde

    Thanks for that .. i tried it and at least the button is
    going somewhere but it's not going to the right scene
    for some reason .. and i did tell it to go to the right
    scene name. Instead of going to the 2nd scene it jumps
    to the third.

    Before i was just using on (release) gotoandplay"sceneName",1)

    I didn't realise you have to put the tellTarget .. why do u have to do that .. what does it mean?

    Thanks heaps,

    torcha

    oops, sorry, try this code:

    on (release) {
    tellTarget ("/") {
    gotoAndStop ("sceneName", 1);
    }
    }

    The tell target action designates the root timeline(/) as the target for the gotoandstop action. Probably your buttons are inside a movieclip, so you need to tell flash to play the root timeline, not that movie clips timeline.

    Hi again !

    It's annoying 'me' again!..

    yes my buttons are inside 2 movieclips i think ..
    i just tried the gotandstop and now it doesn't go anywhere
    at all..

    if i use the gotoandplay it just jumps to the next scene
    disregarding what scene i told it to jump to ...

    anymore suggestions?

    torcha
