ActionScript 2.0 :: Set Up A Code That Will Make A MovieClip Visible?
I am trying to set up a code that will make a MovieClip visible = false when you press the spacebar then reapear when you hit the spacebar again. I had it working once but I lost the code somehow ... think I deleted the wrong file. the one time I got it to work I used a keylistener and stuck the code in the action panel on the timeline at frame 1.

I thought maybe there is a way to do the same thing but instead of the frame 1 action panel thing. I thought you might be able to set it up in a movieclip class action script file. I did these tutorials on the kongregate site ... shootorials and they teach you how to make a MC move with the arrow keys which was easy ... they had you make a ship into a movie clip then you created a new AS class file for the ship movie clip. Then they placed the code under the function onEnterFrame() in the ship class AS file which works well when you want to move something ... because it checks every frame.

I can set up what I want in that area just fine ... problem is it fires off every frame .. so my movie clip blinks on and off several times everytime I hit the spacebar. I just want it to disapear when you hit the spacebar then become visible again when you hit the spacebar again.

Seems like this should be a very easy thing to do but I spent all day reading through tutorials and searching google everything I tried all I did was run into one error or another when I tried to compile for a test.

I am very new to all this so the other thing that confuses me is the fact that you can put code in so many different places and depending on where it goes the same thing might be written a different way depending on where you write it.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Make Movieclip Visible When Variable Empty?
I have an swf that plays a video (toobplayer component) and has two dynamic txt fields. The video and both txt fields are "fed" from an xml file. I also have a movie clip that loads an image on another layer and is set to an alpha of 0. Is there a way to use a conditional statement to check the video variable and if one is not present to change the image loading movieclip to an alpha of 100. here is what I am working with.[code]...

ActionScript 1/2 :: Movieclip Has A Toggle Button To Make It Visible True And False?
on frame 1 I've got 10 movieclips and each movieclip has a toggle button to make it visible true and false.

How do write the script to do the following on frame 10?

if only 1 movieclip is visible make one_mc visible true
if only 2 movieclips are visible make two_mc visible true
if only 3 movieclips are visible make three_mc visible true
... so on for all 10 hope this make sense.

Flash :: Can't Make 22 Pieces Of A Puzzle Visible
I am making a jigsaw puzzle in flash. But I have a weird bug. There are 25 pieces, 5x5. I am passing in the background bitmapData to the pieces as they are created.

For each piece I create a single puzzle-shaped mask bitmap.

So each piece contains a bitmap whose bitmapdata is the puzzle texture. And each piece has a mask piece.

When I just show the masks, all 25 pieces are drawn to the stage.

But when I use the piece masks to mask out the texture, I seem to have a hard limit to 22 pieces in which the mask is applied. This happens if I am using 25 peices or even 80 or 100. Each time, only the last 22 pieces created will display the texture. [code]...

Flash - Make A Movie Clip, Clickable After Just Becoming Visible?
So I have a movie clip called signInBtn and one called signOutBtn initially,

signOutBtn.visible = false;

but when a user signs in

signInBtn.visible = false;
signOutBtn.visible = true;

But after I do that, I can't click the signOut movieclip. I thought it might be because the signOutBtn was under the invisible signInBtn but that is not the case.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Increase Traffic Or Make Flash Site Visible In Search Engines
Is there a way to increase traffic for flash web site. Is there an action script to make your flash website "visible" for others. I heard that if I build a flash web site it will be difficult to get customers due to the fact that flash pages usually don't show up in the data bases. Is it right?

so anyhow is there a way to increase traffic or make my flash site "visible' in search engines. do you think building a splash page in html and then redirect them to flash is a good idea?

ActionScript 2.0 :: MovieClip._visible Not Working [Flash Pro 8] - Movie Clip Is Still Visible On The Screen
I have some AS that creates a movie clip and later tries to make it go away. However, _visible isn't working as I would think. Here's a sample: I create the triangle:


It doesn't work, however. So, I tried trace(triangle30._visible) both before and after the second chunk of code, and it does indeed change from true to false. However, the movie clip is still visible on the screen.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Make A MC Not Visible After A Certain Time?
Is it possible to have a MC go to ._visible=false after a certain amount of time? So you would roll over it and let's say after 2 seconds it would become not visible. Is this to do with the setInterval function? Actionscript knowledge is slim so be gentle.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Make An Object Visible Off Stage?
I would like to make an object visible off stage. So that the object is floated over the HTML. Any Ideas. I don't seem to be able to do it using Transparent Window in the HTML publish options and think it may only be possible using javascript (layers) but I would much prefer to only use flash so if anyone has a idea I'd love to hear it.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Make String Of MCs Invisible/visible?
I have a map of states state when a particular state is clicked on, the fla centers on and zooms to that state. When you click on a state a unique ID is pulled from an xml. Using this ID, I can then call all the counties that are part of this state through the county's xml which is also loaded on my stage.or example if I click on Arizona, it zooms and I get a trace of all the instance names of the counties within Arizona.

//call all instance names of Arizona counties
