I apologize for the duplication, but I thought that the subject may be a bit misleading, and tell people of where THEY CAN GET a good reference, not that I AM IN NEED of a good reference. . . .
I’m trying to get a very simple Actionscript project done in Flash 5, but I’m getting VERY frustrated, because I don’t have the specifics on the hierarchy of Flash 5’s objects, properties and methods.
The specific task involves simply going to and playing certain scenes and frames based on the values of a couple of flag variables that are stored within different scenes, and also turning those flag (boolean) variables on and off while currently in scenes other than where the variables are. I tried accessing the flag variables using the following dot-notation reference:
but then learned that Flash 5 doesn’t store scenes as objects. I then thought that, perhaps, scenes are stored as properties within the MOVIECLIP object, but I’m uncertain as to whether they are stored in any kind of an array or something; I don’t know how to set up such a reference.
ALSO, I would GREATLY appreciate if someone could point me to a good hierarchical reference where I could get this information without having to go on a wild goose chase in order to get it.
I can be reached by phone at (212) 962-3680. Ask to speak to Steve Weber and say it’s regarding a website question I had.
As I said, I have a good knowledge of objects, properties and methods, but can’t seem to move foreward because I don’t have the specifics regarding Flash 5 per se.
