about_btn.onRelease = function() {

actions.about.gotoAndPlay(5)
};
history_btn.onRelease = function() {
actions.gotoAndStop("history");
actions.history.gotoAndPlay(8)
};

why not put the action in the actionscript for the button ?

i.e. convert the object to a button using F8 etc

right click on button and select actions

then use

on (release) {
    gotoAndStop(PAGE NUMBER);
}

then whenever you wish to use this just copy the button from your library ? does that help ?

Thanx guys, some positive progress seen. But its nw acting funny ie. when i publish it, it keeps on playing all the scenes. This wat i used for all the buttons:

on (release){
gotoAndStop("scene x");
}

NB: X stands for the scene number.

Anyone who knows wea de problem is n hw to stop it?
Thanx

what is on(release) ?


I think what you want is:

< .... onclick="gotoAndStop('scene x')">

similiar action as on click except it fires when the mouse is released

This thing is confusing me. Do you mean
1. you have made different flash movies and places them in different files.
2. you have made different scenes in a flash movie.
3. you have made different flash movies and a master flash movie where you use other falsh movies using loadMovie .

Make sure that the symbol you are using is not a BUTTON, but a MovieClip.
Also if your flash movie plays all the scens without stopping check out the actionscipt in each frame.

I think your idea is not perfect. Do one thing edit that file wit my ideas!!!
create diff scenes for for diff pages. rename the scenes with your page names:
Scene 1 as Home, Scene 2 as About, Scene 3 as Gallery and Scene 4 as Contacts and So on..
then in every 1st frame of the scene don't forget to put stop(); in AS...:)
place the buttons in according to your design in a layer which is common to all frames of scene.. do the same for all scenes.
For Home button place codes:

on(press){
       gotoAndStop("Home",1);
}
For About button place codes:
on(press){
         gotoAndStop("About",1);
}
For Gallery button place codes:
on(press){
          gotoAndStop("Gallery",1);
}
For Contact button place codes:
on(press){
         gotoAndStop("Contacts",1);
}

if you have more no. of page within that.. I mean if u have 2 to 3 pages or more in Gallery.. create frames for each pages.. Then create next and back buttons.
In frame 1 place only next button and in last frame place only back button.
And don't forget to use stop(); in AS.. :)

For next button use code:
on(press){
      nextFrame();
}
For back button use code:
on(press){
       prevFrame();
}

i think you have got an better idea from this... i have given you my idea based on your AS you given.. :)
