How do I target a movie clip in MX?

Seeing that the tellTarget function has been “deprecated” (I don’t see why), how can I target a movie clip???

I have a button on a frame on the main timeline, which I want to link to a movie clip that has been placed in another frame (still on the main timeline). Ne ideas??

There have been quite a few posts on the subject…

But anyway, now you have to use the dot syntax. What looked like
tellTarget(“theclip”) {gotoAndPlay(2);}

should now look like

pom :hat:
