buttons within a scene

Here is the buttons within a scene that I was talking about.

Basically if you want to go from scene to scene, or within frames of a scene in a flash movie this is what you have to do.


button1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDownHandler);

function mouseDownHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {

    gotoAndStop(1, "Scene 2");


first there is a stop action, then using the instance name of your button you need to add a event listener, and create a function. In this case I create a function called mouseDownHandler. In this function I simple tell it gotoAndStop(1, “Scene 2”); In the arguments you need a frame and Scene, so in my case I am saying gotoAndStop([frame]1, “Scene 2″);

Here is a live example
