Alrighty :: I know there’s been a million “how do I load a movie and than jump to a specific frame” thead. Well all of those have been helpful :: HOWEVER I wouldn’t be posting because I can’t seem to get my script to run successfully ::
First the background ::
I have a nav. menu made up of seprate movies clips :: inside each movie clip is four buttons :: these buttons are shown using a rollOver, rollOut dealy :::
anyway when you click on one of the buttons it calls “student.swf” to load into an empty MC called content. I’ve tried everything :: What happens is the button will load the MC but will sit on the first frame and do nothing :: the movie clip “student.swf” is not that big so I doubt I’m waiting for it to load.
Bold = both types :: not neccesarily typed that way
i’m trying to get to frame 5 and/or label “interactive”
i’ve also read that you can load the movie into a different level and than gotoAndPlay on that level
that produces the same results as above :: the movie loads but just sits there in the first frame
I also read about using a variable … same results …
SO with this information does anybody have any clues or suggestions??
What would be a simple variable that I could attach to the loadMovie/button
so that when if does load it sees that that variable is TRUE because it was that button that loaded it etc… hense sending the playHead to frame5
