Code: [ Select ]
targeTimeline.onEnterFrame = function(){
if (this._currentframe > beginningFrameNumber){
} else {
delete this.onEnterFrame;
  1. targeTimeline.onEnterFrame = function(){
  2. if (this._currentframe > beginningFrameNumber){
  3. this.prevFrame;
  4. } else {
  5. delete this.onEnterFrame;
  6. }

Basic explanation:

Target a timeline and run an onEnterFrame command so the code will be run upon entry of each frame... repeatedly. It uses an if statement to check if the _currentframe (timeline property) is higher than the frame number that your animation starts on. If it is higher, it uses the prevFrame() function (built in function in Flash) to goto the previous frame in the timeilne. if the _current frame isn't higher than the number of the beginning frame of the animation, then it deletes the onEnterFrame command thus stopping the code from running.
