I'm primarily a motion graphics guy but am helping out a friend with some Flash web work. I have CS3 now but haven't touched the app since MX so Actionscript 3 is taking me some time to get to grips with - not that I was any more than a dabbler anyway.
I am simply trying to make the main timeline play when an MC on the stage reaches the end of its animation. I have tried variations of root.play("menu") or parent.play("menu") in the last frame of the MC but but I get:
"1061: Call to a possibly undefined method play through a reference with static type flash.display:DisplayObjectContainer."
Also it breaks the previously ok code and the 'stop' on the 2 frames of the main timeline are now ignored.
