Hello.  I have a flash movie i'm creating with lots of actionscript that talks to a php/mysql script.
there is only one frame in the movie but different buttons change their text and _x and _y points based on user input.....what i need though is for after a user selects a button to do something, i need the movie to basically "reload" or start out from scratch again, as if it were being reloaded into the browser again.  it seems as if just going and playing the first frame again isn't putting things back in place and changing the text of the buttons as they are originally in the movie...also based on user input, some of the buttons become "enabled" and "disabled", which is normal...but just going back to the first frame and playing again, the buttons don't go back to their original position and enabled status.  anyone have the answer for this?

thank you!

You could try this and see if that does the job for you...

loadMovieNum("youfFile.swf", 0);
