Back and Forward Button

Posted 08 December 2008 - 05:47 PM

Hi,

I need help with creating a backward and forward button inside flash using Actionscript 2.0. The Back button needs to go to the last viewed frame inside a flash document, and the forward needs to go forward to the last viewed frame after hitting the back button. Exactly how a web browser does back and forward. The back and forward only has to go back and forward within the flash document. I am not looking for:

 on (release) {
	prevFrame();
}



I'm looking for previously viewed frame not previous frame in the timeline.

Thanks in advance.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Howdy...

Create a variable on the main timeline...
Create frame labels on all the possible viewable sections...
Save the frame label of the currently viewing screen...
Use that saved frame label to do gotoAndPlay()...

;)
