Hello All,

I am having some issues for some reason getting my code straight for this test project I am doing.  I have an XML file that I am using to manage and load external swf's into a "wrapper" exe file.

I would like to write a bit of code that will evaluate the total frames of a swf and when that swf reaches a certain current frame it calls the next child node in the XML.

I thought that would look something like this but I am afraid I am wrong.

function checkFrames (){
for (i=1;i<dZone._totalframes;i++){
//_____call to the next child node_____\\
}

thanks for your help,

below is the sample code, update it as per your requirement...
var intId = setInterval(this, 'checkFrames', 100);
function checkFrames() {
	if (dZone._currentframe>=20) {
		clearInterval(intId);
		trace("reached frame number 20");
	}
}
