    Action Script Question: gotoAndPlay

    Ok, I took about a year off of flash and actionscript to get my business going, and now I am ready to delve into it again. However, already I'm getting stuck on things that should be easy and straight-forward.

    All I want to do is tell a movie clip to play from a certain frame. It's going to that frame, but not playing... just stopping. Here is the code I'm using:

    _root.ball_animation.gotoAndPlay(2);
    I've attached the little test .fla I'm working with.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure it's a simple thing.

    the movieclip has not had time to fully instanciate
    when your frame#1 code is called, so nothing happens
    try this code on frame#1
    Code:
    this.onEnterFrame = function(){ // loop at FPS
    if(_root.ball_animation._width > 0){ // >0 = instanciated
    _root.ball_animation.gotoAndPlay(2);
    this.onEnterFrame = null; // end loop
    }
    }
