Need help with Director MX script

Need help with Director MX script

Need help with Director MX script

Hi, I'm new here, and I need some help with some Director MX lingo.

Here's what I'm trying to do:
I have 3 videos.  I want the first video to automatically play and pause at the end, at that point I have two buttons appear, one called video A and the other video B.  I need a script code that will play one video if video A button is selected, and a code that will play the other video if video B button is selected.  Sorry if this sounds confusing.

Anyone know the lingo I can use to script these two buttons?  Any help is appreciated, thanks!

I'm also new to this, but here is my 2 cents. :)

Firstly, you might want to create markers, that will jump to the particular video frame when you click on the buttons.

With your buttons on the stage, right click any one, then from the pop up menu go to "Script...". After which, you will now add the following code.

on mouseUp

Line 2, will allow the handler to jump to the marker called "Video" and play whatever sprite you have within that frame.

Do the same for your next button, but this time, it will jump to a next marker. For instance:

on mouseUp

Here's an example of how the markers can be set up.

Hope I helped.

Thanks, I will try it.  It looks good, so it should work.
