var dotX = "";
var dot = "dot";

Any idea what's the meaning of _root.gotoAndPlay(this+"over"); and  _root.gotoAndPlay("origin"); in Flash ?

Thx



for (var i= 1; i <= 11; i++){

this["dot"+i].onRollOver = function() {
      _root.gotoAndPlay(this+"over");
}
this["dot"+i].onRollOut = function() {
      _root.gotoAndPlay("origin");
}

}

From here :
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS2LCR/Flash_10.0/help.html?content=00000566.html
The documentation say :
Sends the playhead to the specified frame in a scene and plays from that frame. If no scene is specified, the playhead goes to the specified frame in the current scene. You can use the scene parameter only on the root Timeline, not within Timelines for movie clips or other objects in the document.

And from here :
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS2LCR/Flash_10.0/help.html?content=00000232.html
It show you this gonna return the object in the currently executing scope

so your code is going to add two listeners (onRollOver and onRollOut) on 11 objects in your page.

1 - You roll over on one of these object, it going to "play" the object/frame having the name of the element + over, for example if the name is "_level0.my_mc" it play "_level0.my_mcover"

2 - You roll out, it play the object/frame having the name "origin"

_root.gotoAndPlay(this+"over");
: "Over" instance of current (on which MouseOver effect tracked) MovieClip will be called and played

_root.gotoAndPlay("origin");
: "Origin" movieclip will be called up and played
