I have a series of thumbnails on screen and I want the user to click to load a movie containing the larger images into "_level2"

How do I call a certain frame of "_level2" movie as I load the movie.

I tried

On (Press)
Load Movie ("bigpicts.swf", 2)
Begin Tell Target ("_level2")
Go to and Stop (2)
End Tell Target
End On

and

On (Press)
Load Movie ("bigpicts.swf", 2)
End On
On (Release)
Begin Tell Target ("_level2")
Go to and Stop (2)
End Tell Target
End On


It seems so simple. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Your code is correct. The problem here is that the frame you are targeting has not had time to load and when Flash looks for it cannot find it. You should preload the movies first and give the frames time to load.

Yes you need to remember that actions on the same button/frame are performed within miliseconds of each other, and there is thus no time for Flash to load the movie before it tells it to do something

Cheers
