Subject: RE: FLASH: using _current frame as a variable?
From: Conlon, Matthew

The simple problem is to get the variable, using path like in tellTarget and
the property of _currentFrame. However, I was trying to use this for a
similar reason, and I was always ending up one value behind - my
object/script that was trying to use the _currentFrame of a sub-movie kept
pulling the value from cache, instead of doing something like a get current
directly from the submovie. I tried a bunch of hack fixes and nothing quite
worked out for the case where I could be having the movie go in either
direction, at least not without writing some script to handle it. I ended up
using frame labels, which for some reason seemed to be more easily used.

Subject: FLASH: using _current frame as a variable?


If anybody can help me out with this (or knows of a tutorial along these
lines) I would be so greatful.
What I am trying to do is this.
Can I use the get propery to retrieve the current frame of an MC and then
use that no. as a variable?
So, if my MC is at frame ten then I can tell target another MC to play, but
if it at frame 20 then a different MC plays?
Do i need to turn this into a variable to make this type of action occur?

I'm a bit stumped.
Thanks in advance.
