    resolved [RESOLVED] Controlling main timeline in a movie clip

    How would one on a specific frame inside a movie clip cause the main timeline to go to a certain frame label?

    I know how to use gotoandstop(), but i can't seem to find a working, correct syntax variable that accesses the main timeline and not the movie clip's timeline.

    you can use events.

    in the main timeline, set up a listener:

    PHP Code:
    addEventListener("myEvent"handlerfalse0true);
    function 
    handler(event:Event):void{
      
    // react however you want...
      
    gotoAndPlay(32);

    then from the frame in the nested clip, dispatch that event:

    PHP Code:
    var e:Event = new Event("myEvent"true); // make sure it bubbles - 2nd argument should be "true"
    dispatchEvent(e); 
    i used simple string event-types here for simplicity; best-practice would be to use custom events.
