TellTarget in MX


I realise that the following question is very basic…

Which action-script commands will enable me of controlling movie clips in Flash MX? (I used to use ‘Tell Target’ in Flash 5). What I wish to do is very simple; tell a movie clip to go to a certain frame and play on…

Any help is much appreciated, thanx

They decided to do away with the tellTarget(); action in Flash MX, and replace it with the much simpler dot notation. So instead of using (forgive poor syntax)


we just use the dot notation to target the clip, like this:


Get it? So you just use a dot as a separator to get clips within clips, and add the desired action on the end, also separated by the dot.
