ActionScript 2.0 :: Delaying With AttachMovie?

Aug 13, 2005

I have a loop and in it i am attaching a movie clip (basiccly its just a row with data). The movieclip has a alpha fade in it. Now I want to delay each attachmovie function so that the movies are attached one by one rather then trow them all on the screen at once. (plus it looks better with the alpha fade).

I tried the setInterval but it wont work (ex.:Interval is 1 sec, and if im going to attach 6 MC, flash wait 6 * 1 sec, then show them all)

And is it possible to attach a movieclip inside a othermovieclip thats not on the same frame (the other MC is on frame 10)?

I'm trying to create something that you could use in a game that shows you the points adding to your total score little by little (instead of it adding it all at once). I've managed to make a timer delay, but it will still only update once and I don't know what to do.

var pointBuffer:Number = 500;
var totalPoints:Number = 1000;

ActionScript 3.0 :: Delaying Code Within A Function

Aug 6, 2009

I have been searching the internet for help on how to delay code within a single function, but every solution I have found so far relies on creating event listeners for a timer and then running commands from the event handler functions.I am writing a 'console' type interface where the user types in a string which is, upon pressing enter, processed in one function and then sent to a final function to display the result.[code]I want to somehow insert a pause between each call of that last function, updateDisplay.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Fading And Displaying / Delaying MC With Timer Function

Jul 31, 2010

I have been trying to execute functions in a sequential order, but I am totally stuck, and I dont know what else to do. I basically want different movie clips to be faded in and out, but one after the other... just like a movie intro with the name, stars etc.. text fading in, text fading out, etc etc... Maybe this is TOTALLY retarded what I am trying to do, but I didnt want to do the classic motion tween in the frames, cause thats just too tedious, and on the other hand I want to learn AS3.0. So here is the code, I am fading in the first movieclip, and displaying/delaying it with the timer function, so it sits on the screen for 4 seconds, until it fades out and stops. Problem is that both clips act the same, and I dont know how to delay //text 2 (clipTwo).

import fl.transitions.Tween;
import fl.transitions.easing.*;
import flash.utils.Timer;
[Code] .....

AS2 - Target An AttachMovie Mc?

May 14, 2009

Through attachMovie I have loaded an mc from the library onto the stage into "holder_mc".

myButton.onRelease = function () {
if (currentWork != "holder_mc.myWork1_mc") {
holder_mc.attachMovie("myWork_mc","myWork1_mc", getNextHighestDepth());
currentWork = "holder_mc.myWork1_mc";

This works.

However, there are a couple of buttons (mc) inside "myWork1_mc" which skips through a few slides in the myWork1_mc clip that I cannot target. I thought using:

holder_mc.myWork1_mc.buttonName_mc.onRelease = function () {

... would work. My curser doesn't even change to the hand symbol. How do I target an dymanically loaded MC from the library which is inside an empty holder MC on the stage via attachMovie? What am i missing? Believe me, I have spent hours trying to google it.

Note: at this stage there is no other script on "holder_mc", but there will be at a later date, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Also, the buttons work when I place the MC onto the stage and not use attachMovie.

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 MC AttachMovie In Scrollpane

Oct 8, 2009

for (i=0; i<policy.length; i++) {
newOpt = Stocklist_MC.attachMovie('Option', 'Option'+i, i);

I've got a ScrollPane on the root stage. This loads a MC called 'Stocklist_MC' (this also has a linkage/export name of 'Stocklist_MC'). When I try to use '.attachMovie' to the movieclip (Stocklist_MC) inside the ScrollPane nothing appears. All the AS is on frame 1 of root. Everything works when I use '.attachMovie' with _root. for (i=0; i<policy.length; i++) { newOpt = _root.attachMovie('Option', 'Option'+i, i); Also, if I drag Stocklist_MC to the stage I get everything working but list gets cut off at bottom, which is the reason why I need it in a scrollPane.

ActionScript 2.0 :: AttachMovie Not Working The On Web?

Aug 24, 2010

I've been battling this project, and finally got it all wrapped up and working, and was feeling pretty proud of myself, and then I went and posted the exact same .swf on the web and it doesn't work anymore.Specifically, there are a bunch of icons which are placed into the FloorMC which then attachMovie a copy of themselves into a LegendMC and UtilityRefMC, but they dont seem to be attaching anything when I run it through a browser.[URL](I'd love to attach the swf and fla to this message, so you could take a look at those, but apparently that would be crazy.) thought perhaps it had to do with me using _root, but I went through and changed them all out to _globals and _parents and it still no likey. Furthermore the Comment Box in the bottom left gets triggered by _root commands form all sorts of different levels, and it seems to work fine, both on the web and off.

Use A Variable Within An AttachMovie Statement?

Sep 11, 2009

What I'm trying to do is simply this:
<variable> = mvcShip
var ship1 = _root.attachMovie( <variable>, shipName + _root.getNextHighestDepth(), _root.getNextHighestDepth() );
What i am trying to attempt here is to make the variable equal to the name of an item in my library. (Im using this to use different ships in an old arcade-style vertical shooter).  This is meant to make a ship appear on stage.
When <variable> is replaced with a library item (eg. mvcShip), it works fine, but if the variable is in place, i get a trace value of ship1 as "undefined", and the ship doesnt show up on the stage.

ActionScript 2.0 :: For Loop - AttachMovie And XML

Mar 3, 2011

I am trying to create a pair of custom drop down menus (one for states, and then one for each states counties). I have an XML doc that contains all this info, which I am parsing out into an array(sc). What I would like to happen is when the user rolls over the states drop down arrow(stDropArrow_mc) that I run a for loop which attaches some movie clips to a states movie clip already on stage(states_mc), fills in the state name in a display text field(display_txt) within the attached movie, within the "states_mc" on stage(root timeline). so essentially(states_mc."NEW ATTACHED MOVIE CLIP NAME".display_txt.text) Here is a code sample that I am using...

ActionScript 2.0 :: AttachMovie External Swf?

Apr 17, 2005

I am trying to revise the very first flash project I ever did and it's become a complicated mess. I have created an interactive atlas. I am using my favorite map zooming and panning tools supplied by Senocular which can be found here: http:[url].....For the panning/zooming/drawBox tool to work the map features must be buried deep within several movieclips. There is one level at which you can put buttons that aren't effected by the code for the panning/zooming etc. Buttons have to go on this level or higher if you want them to work.

The way my atlas is set up - there is a main interface that has these tools plus the menu system. The menu (xml; created by Lost and Sen - brilliant, thank you) loads in two external swfs - one is the map itself and the other is a set of "controls" for that particular map (radio buttons, check boxes, text links, etc.).I have a couple of external swfs that have buttons on them that do things when you roll over and off them. If I have these buttons sitting on the map then when it gets loaded into the main interface they no longer work. So I am trying to use attachMovie to attach them to an MC within the zooming tools in the main interface at a level they can be active.But it's not working.I am guessing it's because the code to attach them is being fired before the external can be loaded into the interface. So I'm not really sure where to fire the attachMovie code. Does it go with the external? Does it go with the controls for the external?

I can supply code if needed though like I said, this file is a mess. There are 15 external maps with 15 "control" files. Plus the main interface, plus some other miscellaneous files.
