Thread: AS2 HELP: button in nested mc won't link back to main timeline

    AS2 HELP: button in nested mc won't link back to main timeline

    so i have a main timeline with a mc. the main timeline has a button named "how_btn" that plays the mc (named "how"). once i get into playing "how", i have a button named "menu" that i want to bring the user back to the main timeline (where the "how" button is). this is how i scripted:

    how_btn.onRelease = function () {
    menu_btn.onRelease = function () {

    the how button script works, however the menu button does not. is this b/c it's in a nested mc? i tried specifying the root, but that didn't do it either.

    any suggestions?

    maybe post some more code

    does your syntax look similar to this?

    ActionScript Code:
    _root.movieclip.menu_button.onRelease = function(){
    //do something
