Why is Output telling me this when it works on the others?

My problem: my root timeline consists of say 10 frames, say. Each frame contains a movieclip.

A have a script action “STOP” on each of the 10 frames.

When I publish Output tells me this on 2 of the frames on the root timeline-

"scene1, layer1, frame 5. statement must appear within on/ onclipevent handle stop();

But each action script is exactly the same, so why is it grouchy about frame 5 and 8? The movie seems to play fine so should i just ignore this?


if you’re not a total beginner you should prob stop reading now or i’ll most likely offend, but just incase… when you’re looking at the stop(); action in frame 5 or 8, what does the grey title bar of the actions pane say? it should say “Actions - Frame”. If it says “Actions - Movie Clip”, there’s your problem - you’ve typed the action onto the movie clip and not onto the frame.

thanks for getting back;
I check the actions panel just as you said - all say actions frame, so it doesn’t seem to be the script is on the MC. Any other ideas why frames 5 and 8 are acting up.

And i’m definatley a beginner, no offense taken, and you should propably assume I’ve done something stupid.
