I have a movie clip on the main timeline called <spinningBall>   Inside it is a movie clip called <greenBar> on frame 11.   <greenBar> has 9 frames and at a certain point on the main timeline, I want it to become half as wide, and also stop on its lnext to last frame, so I have this script on that frame:

this.spinningBall.greenBar._xscale = 50;
this.spinningBall.greenBar._gotoAndStop(8);

The first line of script works, but the second doesn't.  what am I missing?

Thanks,

Gabriel

no underscore before gotoAndStop


this.spinningBall.greenBar.gotoAndStop(8);
