    Flash ActionScript
    I am building a flash movie. So far I'm able to create the buttons and play the sceens. Unfortunately, I need the user to click on the button which takes me to frame 2, but I need it to stop on frame 15, yet it keeps playing the scene until frame 85 which is the last frame. I have some course material from a class I took a while ago, and their file does this. Once you click play, it plays the short scene from fram 1 to 15. I can't figure out how they did it...

    Please help!

    Thank you for posting your question to the Ask Me Help Desk.

    Have you tried creating a new layer and placing a stop action in frame 15?

    I find it helpful to keep all of the actions in one layer named 'actions' and place the codes at the various frames where I need them.

    Thanks Rudi - I was able to figure it out after looking at the exercise file from school more closely and you're right.

    Thanks for your help and prompt reply :)
