    messy flash..
    i have problem structuring my flash site.
    i have one scene with 5 movie clips as my links/pages
    but i have problems when clicking within pages.

    for example between my services and about page
    ebesign.co.nz/design3
    i have just started so would like maybe to read a tutorial or learn quickly
    how i can organise it so that i can have buttons inside my movies that come out of the movie to the main scene and then into the desired mov without overlapping..

    sorry if this does not make much sense, can;t explain well..

    You are going to have to point the buttons inside of the movies to <parent> so they are associated with that movie and not your main timeline.

    Here are a couple of sites that have plenty of tutorials explaining what you need and the forums at these two sites are a great source of information also:

    Here are two to get you started on the idea, also you can do a search for "loadmovie" which will also help.

    no.
    basically i need to put on all of my movie clips
    some code saying if clip.name1 is open close
    and then open clip2. and
    so on for if clip.name3 is open close and open clip.name1...

    i guess i can do this by giving the clip's instance names..
    but im not sure about the code, you say load Movie ?
    that comes up asking for a url and method, etc is that right?

    Cool, glad it worked out. The loadMovie function is more for loading external movies into your current .swf and helps out if your movies/files are getting pretty large and you want to cut them down some. The _root. and _parent. situation and can be consfusing at first but after using it you see what it does.

    html php form into flash
    i have a simple form that post to my action.php file which i want to bring into flash

    so i setup all my var with the same values the html fields have ,etc

    and used
    getURL (action.php", "", "POST");
    and though the message sent it was not bringing through any of the information so there was a problem with the fields also it would go to the file. so i del the html off the file so it was just a script but i still need the flash fields to work.

    so i heard if you wanted a file to be in the background to use this..
    on(click){;
    loadVariablesNum ("action.php", 0, "POST");
    but now it does not send an email and it just seems to load for ages.

    any ideas?
