Navigating to different scenes using buttons in Animate 2024

Hi all,

I developed a project in ActionScript2 in CS5. I have now opened my project in Animate to change into AS3. My project has 186 scenes which all opened correctly in AS2 however now, in AS3, an error appears stating the scenes are not found.  I have tried just about everything I can think of, over several days, to get the buttons to navigate to their proper scenes, but still the error appears. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you. Cheers Frederick

Thanks for the feedback.

 

Ctrl + Alt + Enter is the shortcut for testing the current scene only. It means the other scenes aren't published.

 

You should use Ctrl + Enter only to test the whole movie.

Hi.

 

Can you see the scenes using the Scene panel?

 

Which code are you using?

 

And what command are you using to test?

 

Please let us know.

 

Regards,

JC

Hi Joao,

Thank you so much for your reply.

I have made up a test movie with two scenes to work out the code to go from one scene to the other using a button in each scene.

Yes, both scenes appear in the scene panel.

This is the code I'm using:

 

button1_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_ClickToGoToAndStopAtScene);
function fl_ClickToGoToAndStopAtScene(event:MouseEvent):void
{
gotoAndStop(1,"Scene2");
}

 

I'm using Ctrl + Alt + Enter to test.

 

Thank you,

Regards,

FS

I mentioned I built my project using AS2. I made a mistake there, it was actually in AS1.
