var speed:Number = 10;
object_mc.onEnterFrame = function() {
if (Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)) {

ActionScript 3.0 :: MovieClip Flashing Between Flipping Right And Left

Jan 10, 2010

I got this pretty much working, but there is a bug, when the bird is going right the trace statement says right but I get the movieclip flashing between flipping right and flipping left. So I assume its a problem with that bit of the code. Also this function is running constantly so I don't know if that might be an issue:

public function objDirection() {
trace('old' + oldX);
trace('charx' + char.x);
if (char.x>oldX) {
trace("Bird right");

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flipping The Clip Horizontally Without Changing The Position?

Jul 19, 2010

I've loaded a clip in my main swf and I want to flip it by using scaleX*=-1the problem is that in my clip, the animation is at the center of the stage so when I load it and flip it using scaleX instead of staying at the same place it flips by using the top left corner of the clip as a pivot instead of the center of the animation itselfI could either solve this problem by placing the center of my animation on the point (0,0) in the clip or flip then rearrange the clip's x position inside my main swf...but is there a more effective method?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Movie Clip Button - Button Just Goes Left For Ten Frames ?

Mar 5, 2004

I have a MC, which i would like to act as a button, controlled by AS. So,inside the MC is a simple animation (the button just goes left for ten frames (preferred rollOver action) and then back for another ten (preferred rollOut action).On the MC actions I put:

on (rollOver) {

What happens is the following: on mouse over the mc goes left, on mouse out the mc goes back to its original place.It works exactly as it is supposed to. Exactly until you try again... if you move the mouse away from the mc (onRollOut), before the animation reaches the end, it goes bezerk.what happens and also how the animation can be done using only AS (with some for loop or function or something and chaning _x property)?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash - Movie Clip To Play Unless The Person's Mouse Curser Is On The Movie Clip For More Than A Second

If the person just runs their curser over the movie clips really quickly, then it should do nothing. It must be more than a second. How do I code that?

ActionScript 2.0 :: DropTest - Check And See If The Dragged Movie Clip Is Completely Within The Bounds Of Another Movie Clip

Jan 11, 2010

I'm creating a small drag & drop activity, and I want to be able to check and see if the dragged movie clip is completely within the bounds of another movie clip (or at least in the bounds of a certain x/y zone on the main stage. I can't use dropTest because it returns true if any tiny bit of the movie clip overlaps with the dropTest movie clip.

I also thought of something that just checks the x/y coordinates of the dragged movie clip, but I'd need this to reflect a range of values rather than one coordinate. For instance, I'd want to return true if the movie clip's x is between 50-60 AND the y is between 50-60. I'm attaching a small graphic to illustrate in case my explanation isn't clear enough [URL]

ActionScript 3.0 :: MCs Classes - Can't Send An Event From The Eagle Movie Clip Or The T2D Movie Clip To Tell The Other To Fade Out

Nov 5, 2010

There is a bad gap in my knowledge with Event Dispatch and Event architecture, and this problem proves it. I've been getting nowhere on this problem for two days, I've posted everything to my Flash site. Go here, please: [URL] Click on "Flash Banners" The two thumbnails represent two different classes. Each class is identical. Both are "extends Movie Clip" classes. Tweeners of various types control the hover and click methods. URL Loaders load the thumnails which I then wrap in MC's and make them buttonMode = true, etc. Hover and click to load the Banners on the thumbnails.

I can't send an event from the Eagle movie clip or the T2D movie clip to tell the other to fade out. Both Banner classes are instantiated through a separate Base class. I'm sure this has to be an Event Dispatch from one MC to another and that it can't be done by the Base class. how I can send an Event or Event Dispatch and what the code structure is so one movie clip can in one class can tell the other movie clip in the other class to disappear while it's neighbour is playing. I'm happy to post code or explain / clarify anything that's not clear.

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 2.0 :: Find The X-y Coordinates Of The Attached Movie Clip Within The Created Movie Clip?

(I am trying to attach a movie clip to a created clip and I wanted it to be centered inside the container - a related sub-question, how can I find the x-y coordinates of the attached movie clip within the created movie clip?)

Q2)When I tried to create two different movie clips, I found I had to create them at different depths, else the first would load and the second would not. Why would that be so? I'm on MX 2004 Pro.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Actions On Movie Clip Inside Another Movie Clip (menu) Won't Work

I have a very simple problem but I can't find the very simple solution to it. I've create an animated menu with animated movie clips inside to work as buttons. All the main buttons work perfectely but I've got just on button with a sub-menu. On this sub-menu I've placed an invisible hitarea button in order to place some gotoAndStop action. The thing is, it seems to me like this submenu hitarea are underneath something else (even though is the seccond layers right about the actions layers). I've placed a simple trace action whenever the mouse rolls over this area but I get nothing... Am I doing something really wrong? I'm losing all my hair already.
