**Urgent** Navigation

When the user clicks a link from the navigation, it will load a movie into the STAGE, to the right of the NAVIGATION.  Once the movie is done playing, a button will appear in the movie that will say " Click here to play the next section".  When/if the user clicks that button, it will UNLOAD the current movie and then LOAD the new movie.  But it also has to HIGHLIGHT the next link in the NAVIGATION, this is the part that I am stuck on.

All of my code is on the individual buttons that are within a few MC's, I am assigning a GLOBAL VARIABLE.  If anyone knows of a different way to accomplish this, I am all ears.  

Also if you have any other questions, please psot them and I will respond ASAP, (usually within minutes).

Hello!
I think that you should give instance names for your movieClips:

In test2.fla:
For Navigation BackgroundMOV give instance name: nav_mc
For Inner Animation MOV give instance name: inner_mc

Open test.fla
write the following script for your Next button
on(release){
      _parent.nav_mc.inner_mc.navBTN.gotoAndStop("navOff");
      _parent.nav_mc.inner_mc.tipsBTN.gotoAndStop("tipsOn");
}

The problem with doing that is the Rollover State.  If I control it this way, when the button is in the ON STATE, and then you rollvoer it, it will automatically go to the ROLLOFF STATE.  Does this make sence?

Hi
You should use _root instead _global for your currentStep variable.
So:
1. For your Navigation button:
on (rollOut) {
        //if(_global.currentStep!=1)_parent.navBTN.gotoAndPlay("navOff");
      if(_root.currentStep!=1)_parent.navBTN.gotoAndPlay("navOff");
}
on (release) {
      _root.currentStep=1;
      //_global.currentStep=1;
      ...
}


2. For your Tips&tricks button:
on (rollOut) {
        //if(_global.currentStep!=2)_parent.tipsBTN.gotoAndPlay("tipsOff");
      if(_root.currentStep!=2)_parent.tipsBTN.gotoAndPlay("tipsOff");      
}
on (release) {
        //_global.currentStep=2;
      _root.currentStep=2;
      ...
}

3. The same for Help button

4. Next button in Test.fla:
on(release){
      _parent.nav_mc.inner_mc.navBTN.gotoAndStop("navOff");
      _parent.nav_mc.inner_mc.tipsBTN.gotoAndStop("tipsOn");
      _root.currentStep=2;
}

I tried that, and it does the same thing.  It will load the next movie, but the link state does not change. It will only change when you roll over it.  It then resets and shows the correct state.

I don't know why it doesn't work for you.
With the above script I haven't problems with the over state of buttons.
If you want download my version:
