    Question 3D MENU - 3D MENU (Linkage Enquiry?)

    Hiya,
    I am having a problem trying to link a gotoAndPlay action on a button within a 3D Menu component to another MC on a different 3D Menu component. I am guessing it needs to be connected through the linkage "Mc" but I do not know how to do this?

    I am not fluent in Actionscript so could do with some help.

    Any ideas.

    Cheers.

    First, I'm not aware of a 3D Menu component, so my advice is based on generalizations on how Flash components are set up. If the author of the component didn't follow accepted best practices, then I can't help without first examining the component.

    The first thing you should do is assign instance names to both components. The instance name is set in the properties panel. The instance name can be anything but it should be unique.

    For examples sake, say we called them MENU1 and MENU2. If you wanted to attach an action to a movieclip called button within MENU2 from MENU1, you would use the following actionscript:

    Code:
    MENU1.button.onRelease = function() {
       MENU2.button.gotoAndPlay();
    }
    Again, the above code says, when I click on the button movieclip within MENU1, gotoandPlay() button within MENU2.

    If that doesn't help, post your .fla and I'll take a closer look.
