How do you perform a simple "frame jump" in Adobe Flash CS4 using actionscript 3?

Experts,

I am trying to do a very simple task by placing a button (some text) in my flash movie, and when clicked on, it will jump to another frame a little further down the time-line in the same scene.

I have scoured the net looking for the code to insert and I can not find it anywhere. I know this is got to be a very simple task and I apologize for being so actionscript 3 / flash ignorant.

Thanks for your help.

Matt

btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, onClick)   //replace btn with the name of your button
function onClick(e:MouseEvent){
      gotoAndPlay(30); //30 is the frame number
}

Hey Scooby...thanks for the code it works. However, I have a related problem. I apologize I didn't tell you this up front...I just didn't think it made a big difference but apparently it does.

Anyway, here is the issue, I have four other buttons in the scene that I have applied this same code too. When I applied it to just one button in the scene...all is well. However, the minute I apply it to the other buttons, I get the following error message.

"1021: Duplicate function definition."

Thanks,
Matt

Scooby...nevermind...I got it! The minute I hit the post button...I realized that I need a unique function name.

Thanks for your help!
