    Question Can a button play a mc on a different layer?

    Hi

    I don't know if this is possible, but can you have a button on one layer play a mc on another layer?

    I am trying to build a file where when my button is clicked, it will move the x and y axis of a movie clip on the layer below.

    I'm working in CS4 action script 3.0 (no drop down menu option?)

    Any help would be totally totally appreciated!

    Yes, it's possible. You have to give an instance name to your movie (for example - mc) and add a click listener to your button, like this:

    Actionscript Code:
    playButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, startPlay);

    function startPlay(e:MouseEvent):void {
      mc.play();
    }

    I know my code is wrong, but I don't know how to correct it.

    My btn instance name is: art_btn_cfo
    My mc instance name is: work_mc

    When the btn is clicked, I'd like the work_mc to move it's x and y coordinates.

    Here is what I've got:

    play.art_btn_cfo.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, cfoClick);
    function cfoClick(e:MouseEvent):void
    {
    work_mc.play(moveContent(187,53));
    }

    Can you help out - I'm lost.

    Thanks so much.

    Code:
    art_btn_cfo.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, cfoClick);
    
    function cfoClick(e:MouseEvent):void {
      work_mc.x = 187;
      work_mc.y = 53;
      work_mc.play();
    }
