    Please Help Me!

    I asked this question the other day but did not get the help I need. I am sure it was the right info but I do not understand.

    I have a movie called main.swf and it has a MC in the main timeline of the forth scene called musicMC. It loads another .swf file called sample.swf to the stage when you click a button inside the main.swf movie. Now I need a button inside the sample.swf movie to control the music MC inside the main.swf movie. I was told to do it like this:

    _root.musicMC.gotoAndStop("stop"); - not sure if this is correct

    _parent. - do I need this?

    Please help me understand this. It is driving me crazy! Thanks for your time and your help.

    It is still not working. Does it matter if the button in the loaded movie is inside an MC? It is inside another MC.

    Here are the files (in two postings). I had to remove the sound as well because the file size was to big. I have text saying music playing and music stopped so you can tell if it is working or not.

    MX2004 format? Won't work for me! You'll have to save as MX.

    Start by giving the instance name of "musicMC" to your musicMC on the stage.
    Then add this script to your button in the sample.fla...
    code:

    on (release) {
    _level0.musicMC.nextFrame();
    }



    Should work fine.

    It works perfect! Thank you.

    I had another question for you about this file:

    http://www.flashkit.com/movies/Sound...8331/index.php

    I want it maxed out at 100% right when it starts playing. Is it a pain or something fairly easy to do?

    Again thank you for all your help.

    It's a pain, but if you insist, I might have another look!
