ActionScript 3.0 :: Make A Simple Flash Mp3 Player With A Play/pause Toggle Button Called Toggle_btn

Jan 14, 2011

I'm trying to make a simple flash mp3 player with a play/pause toggle button called toggle_btn. The button is actually a MovieClip with two buttons inside it: play_btn and pause_btn, which live in different places on the MovieClip's timeline. That all works fine, and when I press the play/pause button for the first time, my music plays as expected.

However, when I press it again to pause, it keeps right on playing. If I push it again, the button gets all glitchy, and doesn't go into its rollover state when it should nor toggle when clicked.

Here's my ActionScript:

// load the playlist
var getFile:URLLoader = new URLLoader(new URLRequest('songs.xml'));
var numSongs:int = 0; // number of songs in playlist -- we'll set this later

ActionScript 3.0 :: Toggle Play / Pause Button In An FLA Animation?

Oct 27, 2008

I'm having difficulty adding a Play/Pause button to an FLA animation that I've created. The animation is a frame-by-frame clip with motion tweens (rather than an FLV file). I'd like the Play/Pause button to toggle between a PLAY state and a PAUSE state depending on whether the animation is already playing or paused. (It will automatically play when the user begins viewing it, so the first button state should be at PAUSE.)

I've sucessfully created the button (actually as a movie clip with the two states). I've also got the button to pause and play the animation--but I'm unable to get the button (movie clip that is) to actually toggle between the two states. Can anyone tell me a good script to use for this type of control?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Make A Button 'toggle'?

Dec 5, 2006

I'm simply creating a button in flash that should alternate between a 'play' graphic (i.e. > ) and a pause graphic (i.e. || ) every time its clicked. That's all!

In shockwave I would simply type a line of code that would set a new memberNumber or memberName to swap the graphics on mouseUp. How do I do it in Flash? I called a friend and he though I had to do something like create a movieClip inside a button or vice versa. It all seems rather complicated for such a simple task.

When button1 is clicked, the cursor changes into a 'movieclip' I want this movieclip cursor to switch back into a regular cursor when button1 is clicked again, so toggle the function on and off. My question to you is, is it likely to use some kind of boolean here to toggle the function on and off?

function follow(evt:MouseEvent) {
cursor.x = mouseX;
cursor.y = mouseY;

Play / Pause Music With Single Button?

Sep 28, 2009

I'm extremely new to Flash and I am making a website and want to have a single button that when pressed pauses or plays a music file. I was able to create one that works by following a tutorial that I found online but the problem is that the button is on the main timeline so as I move away from it, it stops working. I think that it would work better if I was able to make a movie clip out of the button so that it doesn't sit on the main timeline and will keep working no matter where I am on the timeline. All I need is one button that pauses and plays music when pressed. I also want to be able to have a "music on" line of text and "music off" line of text depending on whether the music is playing or not.

ActionScript 1/2 :: Pause And Play Toggling Button?

Mar 23, 2011

I have created a Pause and Play button that toggles between states.  It controls a Timeline with synced Sound.  When I use it the sound and animation go out of sync.  Can anyone help me with this or perhaps have better code I could swap out to make this work?
Below is what I am currently using:On the first frame of an Action Script layer put this AS:
playBtn.onRelease = function() {
playBtn._visible = false;
pauseBtn._visible = true;

Put the Pause and Play buttons directly over each other on 2 layers for the duration of the timeline.Pause Button on top. (unless you have a STOP on the first line then maybe the Play button will start it.

Aug 27, 2003

I have seen umpteen different guides on how to make a play/pause button in flash. and i cannot get it to work. I think i may pull my hair out soon.basically- i have made an mc which sits on the main timeline. i t has 2 frames, ecah of which has a stop() action in the frame. the first has a pause button with the following script attached to to the button:


i have also tried putting in nextFrame instead of gotoAndStop() -but this is besides the point as it's not even stopping!in the second frame there is a play button with the following scruipt attached to it:


I think the problem may be deeper rooted because i have looked on sevral guides and they all tell me to do a similar thing.
In fact i made a button which sat on the timeline with this script

on (release) {

and STILL nothing happened!
