ActionScript 1/2 :: Photo Gallery - Create An Empty Movie Clip Holder That Would Reside On The Main Timeline?

Mar 7, 2011

I am using CS4 and ActionScript 2.0.I am trying to create a photo gallery.I have created 4 different movie clip buttons that reside on the content layer.Each button consists of one image.When the movie clip button is pressed, I want the full size image to appear on the stage next to the buttons.You can see the buttons in the image below.I am trying to create an empty movie clip holder that would reside on the main timeline while the buttons reside on the content layer.I need to get the images to load into the empty movie clip and then unload when the next button is selected?I can't seem to get the buttons to "talk" to the empty movie clip holder.I did manage to create code for an empty movie clip holder within each button, but then I end up with all four images on top of each other.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Loadmovie, Bringing An External Swf Into A Holder Clip That Is Empty?

Jul 7, 2007

I am doing a simple loadmovie, bringing an external swf into a holder clip that is empty.
here is my code. I have it placed on frame one INSIDE the holder clip:

PHP Code:


The external movie loads, but the issue is HOW it loads. The swf is 643x394 and looks fantastic by itself. When it is loaded into the holder clip though, it scales it and makes it much taller and wider than the actual external SWf is, and is messing the way it looks up.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Movie Clip On Main Timeline Receiving Input From Nested Movie Clip

Feb 23, 2011

I've got a main timeline .swf file called "blank.swf" which contains nothing but two blank movie clips one called called "pproduct", the other called "ppalette". In the script frame of this main timeline I use the simple "Loader = new Loader();" method to load a URL of an .swf file into the "ppalette" movie clip. The "ppalette" movie clip contains several color chip buttons, each of which use the same Loader method above to load an external .swf into a clip. Here's what I want to do: let those color chip buttons, when the "blank.swf" file loads, be used to load an .swf movie into the "pproduct" clip on the main timeline. I'm wanting to be able to swap depths with various movie clips which will take out the movie which has the palette, but I want whatever that palette has loaded in the original "pproduct" clip to stay there.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Movie Clip Timeline To Main Timeline Coding?

Oct 9, 2009

I have a file comprised of 1 scene and two movie clips. The clips are instanced into the Main Timeline and occupy Frames 1 and 2 respectively.MovieClip1 is an animation that has navigation buttons that appear at the end of the clip. I'm trying to get mouse click navigation to make Frame 2 on the Main Timeline active.

Here is what I'm trying but it is not working:

btExplore.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ExploreClick);
function ExploreClick (evt:MouseEvent):void {

this takes the animation to Frame 2 of the Movie Clip Timeline not Frame 2 the Main Timeline.

So, essentially, I have a home.swf that loads menu.swf into a container called 'location'. In menu.swf, I have an MC called center, which contains the MC I am targetting called 'target'.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Buttons And Transitions - Load In External Swf Files Into An Empty Movie Clip On The Main Stage Called Container

Jan 11, 2004

I have a problem with buttons and transitions and it is similar to a problem I had a couple of days ago that I posted and that was sorted out. I have two buttons onstage (they're inside a movie clip) inside the movie, on the button one I have the following


I have similar code on button two and this does indeed make the buttons move into place as required. My problem is this, I need to load in external swf files into an empty movie clip on the main stage called container. These External SWF files have transitions and this is where my problem is. If I place a normal button on the stage it works but not if the button is inside a movie clip and has actions applied as above. The code next is what I have believe should also be placed on the button to make swf transition one load in.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Play Movie Clips Embedded Inside A Movie Clip On The Main Timeline?

Dec 6, 2009

I have my flash document set up in the following way: On the main timeline I have my buttons that I want to play movie clips embedded inside a movie clip on the main timeline.However, when I click each different button, the current movie clip stops playing and then the movie clip corresponding to the button plays.

I want them all to be able to play at once. So for example you push button 1 and the alien plays, but half way through you could click button 2 and the alien clip would keep playing, but also the helicopter clip would begin to play as well.Here is the code I have so far:

building_btn1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, alien);
building_btn2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, helicopter);

Movie Clip Symbol Won't Play On Main Timeline

Aug 29, 2005

I've created a movie clip symbol with it's own animation on its timeline. I've placed this symbol onto the first frame of the main timeline but when I test it, it doesn't play. There's no stop actions or anything on either timelines so I'm not sure why this is happening. I thought that the animation in a movie clip symbol will automatically play (i.e. if you test in a browser) once it's on the main timeline - is this right? Or am I doing something wrong. Maybe I need to tell it to play?

Movie Clip Button Controlling Main Timeline?

Jan 4, 2012

I'm in the process of designing this site as a portfolio for my art and am in the process of creating and laying out the galleries. My idea was to create movie clip animated buttons that would react to the roll over stuff. I got that part to work the way I wanted it. But now, I can't seem to figure out how to put a "Gotoandplay" type of code on the buttons so that the timeline would jump to the appropriate frame and play. (I put an "on(release) gotoandplay" on it the way I would put it on a button but it never responds. I have a couple of buttons that work fine with a "geturl". so I thought a "gotoandplay" would work fine. If this can be figured out in a way that I can easily use it for all buttons with just the frame number needing alteration, that would be best. After you click the splashpage door jpg, there will be a piece of paper on the floor. That is a button which should trigger the animation that starts at frame 114. When clicked, the page lifts up and spread open to two pages. But it never reacts

Actionscript 3.0 :: Target A Movie Clip From The Main Timeline?

Apr 5, 2010

I have 7 buttons on the main stage that go to different parts of the main timeline, all of which have the same movie clip with 7 different frames. Right now it always goes to the first frame of the movie clip, but I need the second button to go to the second frame, and so on. I was originally trying to have the button itself find a frame label inside the movie clip, but now I realize I probably need to attach something to the key frames of the main timeline that tells it to go to a specific part of the movie clip. The problem is I can't figure out how to address the movie clip from the main timeline. The book I started learning from had a short section on declaring movie clips, and I cobbled together this bit of code and put in on a key frame in the main timeline.

Code: Select allvar viewwork:MovieClip = root.viewwork


I'm pretty sure that's completely wrong, as it gives me the error: 1119: Access of possibly undefined property viewwork through a reference with static type flash.display:DisplayObject.

So how do I properly reference a movie clip from the main timeline? Also, I'm using an external .as file for most of my actions, but I'm sticking this directly on the frame because I haven't even thought about trying to figure out how to target a specific frame from an external file. Is that going to cause problems?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Restarting The Main Timeline From A Movie Clip?

May 20, 2003

I have a movie clip that generates random numbers until the numbers I specify come up. The movie clip takes a random amount of time to cycle through. It only plays once.

Basically, I want the main timeline of the movie to pause until the movie clip finishes, then continue on (to a new scene, or current scene if this is easier).

I got the main timeline to stop and wait for the MC to play, however, when I add the to the end of the MC script, it plays the main timeline right away, over the main timeline, rather than waiting for itself to finish.
