    gotoAndPlay isn't working

    Using Flash MX... trying to nake different mcs play depending on what key you press... right now only the 1 and 2 keys are set up... when i tried this:

    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    if (Key.isDown(Key.getCode(49))) {
    Play();
    }
    }

    it played both the answer_1_hidden and answer_2_hidden clips, so i tried changing the code to target each movie clip specifically but it doesn't do anything now:

    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    if (Key.isDown(Key.getCode(49))) {
    _root.answer_1_hidden.gotoAndPlay();
    }
    }

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    gotoAndPlay requires something to be passed to it in the brackets, either the number of the frame
    code:

    _root.answer_1_hidden.gotoAndPlay(2);



    or a frame label

    code:

    _root.answer_1_hidden.gotoAndPlay("start");

    Did this solve the problem?
    only stupid people look for logic in the chambers of the human heart

    your code needs amending slightly
    code:

    if (Key.isDown(49)) {
    _root.answer_1_hidden.gotoAndPlay(2);
    }
