Flash button I have to press the button twice

Hi

I have a problem with this button it calls a Perl script and the script returns a variable named GoodUser and that can have a value of a Yes or No. My problem is I have to press the button twice to get the "gotoAndStop" part of this script to work any ideas?



on(release){
loadVariablesNum ("http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/flashtest.pl", 0, "GET");

if (GoodUser eq "Yes"){
gotoAndStop("Good");
}

if (GoodUser eq "No") {
gotoAndStop("Bad");
}

}

Hi blnukem,
here is the correct version: http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home2001/n0069866/help.fla
All you have to do is to take out the loadVariablesNum ("http://www.smldesign.com/cgi-bin/flashtest.pl", 0, "POST"); out of the on(release) function and put it into the FRAME instead.
Usually, those loadVariableS and loadVars are put in the frame instead of button because it's make the code run faster and always execute first.
Cheers,
