Default ComboBox Hell

Hi all,

First let me start off by saying that I'm not a natural coder. I'm a designer/animator and actionscript is one of the hardest things I've attempted. I've tried websites and I don't know how many archived threads to understand the flash combobox codeing, but I just don't get it.

I have a combobox in a movieclip. I want it to tell another movieclip to go to a different frame. I have the box generating a list (by plugging in values to lable parremeter) and all of my keyframes in the other move are setup, but I just can't get my head around the code to get it working. I've tried all sorts of things.

Can anyone help a damsel in distress?

Hmmm if you can upload a smal cut down example (the combo and the clip to play) i will fit it for you

unfortunatly the FLA size will by larger then the aloved upload size here so you need to put it on an externel place where i can down load it

Hmmm and i need an email address to send it back
