    how do you get the current frame (number or label) in AS for more scripting, refering to the current frame ???

    for example I have a MC that I want to go the the same frame label as the main timeine, (they are labeled identical, but could be changed if needed ) whenever the button is clicked.

    Is there any way to do this without variables ??

    thanks

    Hi...

    _currentframe will return the current frame of the targeted timeline...ie:

    _root._currentframe
    _root.movieclip._currentframe
    this._currentframe

    etc...

    deadbeat, thanks for your reply

    why won't it work ?? (pulling my hair out)

    two buttons, one with :

    on (release) {
    gotoAndStop (_currentframe-1);
    }

    the other with:

    on (release) {
    gotoAndStop (_currentframe+1);
    }

    the movie jumps to the very last frame of the movie, no matter which one you hit, and no matter where it is on the timeline ????

    what's wrong with this script ?? (each frame in the movie has a "stop()" script on it, and otherwise works fine. . .)

    thanks
