Structuring the movie - the layers

The movie consists of two frames. The opening frame collects user information. The second frame displays the calculated repayment.

The movie is made up of the following layers:

  • functions
  • actions
  • validation
  • UI - for the user interface elements
  • labels
See the sample fla file for more information.

I added keyframes to the first and second frames of both the actions and labels layers. I added a stop action on each frame of the actions layer.

I named the first and second frames of the labels layer start and calculate respectively. I'll use the frame names in my gotoAndPlay actions. It's better to use names as a reference rather than frame numbers as it means you can add frames later without have to change your references.
