    Timeline help.

    I'm VERY new to flash development and I'm hoping someone could answer a simple question.

    I have a movie that has a movie clip embedded into it. (by movie clip I mean I created a symbol with the behaivor of a movie clip) I need the movie clip to control the time line in the parent movie. How is this done?

    If you need more detail here they are...

    The movie clip is embeded in frame 5 of my parent movie. This movie clip asks the user a set of three questions. Once all the questions have been answer correctly there is a "continue" button. On press, I'd like the button to move the parent movie ahead to the next frame, which in this case would be frame 6. Currently the action script I created doesn't work. The script is...

    on (press) {
    nextFrame();
    }

    ...which does nothing. I think I know why (becuase it's trying to control the movie clip rather than the parent movie)

    Thank you to anyone who can help.

    Regards,
    Curt

    code:

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

    Try _root.nextFrame()

    think that is it but not sure.
