Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: buttons in movie clip?

  1. #1

    buttons in movie clip?

    Another person on this forum has sent me her FLA file and I am trying to figure out a problem she is having.

    The problem is this. A movie clip has been created and inside this movie clip are buttons. Each button has actionscript which tells it to go to another scene on release. An example of the script for one of the buttons is below.

    on (release) {
    gotoAndStop("maps", 1);

    maps being the name of the scene. Is there a conflict because the buttons are placed inside the movie clip. I have done this sort of thing myself in the past and never had a problem - but I must add that the buttons were never in a movieclip, they were always on their own scene. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I should add that nothing is happening when the buttons are pressed.

    Thank you

    This is one of many bugs with scenes in Flash MX. You cannot call them from anywhere except the main timeline.

    I hope in the next version of Flash MM get their act together and fix scenes.
