Default quick question on an interface

i made a simple interface in flash for my website. upon loading the page, the interface slides down, once its all the way down, a piece slides across to the left to reveal the links. i made buttons and all that stuff, the links work etc. now i'm modifiying the interface for the other pages of my site and i'd like to have this happen when a link is clicked, the the piece that originally slid across to reveal the links, i want that to slide back across to its original place, and then have the interface slide back up, pretty much a reverse of what it originally does. the only problem i'm having is that i can't figure out how to have that animation go after the link is clicked. because when the link is clicked it goes directly to the page the link points to. i hope that made sense, maybe some could help me out with this. i'm assuming i have to add some actionscript to tell it to wait until the animation is over to go to the link. thanks!

hello,

im not sure that i am understanding your question completely, but it seems to me you could just make your next button jump to an mc of your animation in reverse which contains a stop action when it is complete. and so on and so forth. do you have a link to your project anywhere.

regards, jevans.

here's the link to it

http://shakti.trincoll.edu/~czoppi/home.html

i've gotten a little further, i inserted into the script to Go TO frame 91, which is the start of the animation of the interface rolling up. but it only plays that frame. how do i tell it to go to frame 91, play until the end, and then go the link?

thanks!

hey Zipp,

i assume you have something like gotoAndPlay on your button and not something like gotoAndStop? is your animation in a movie clip or just spread out on the time line?
