ActionScript 3.0 :: Get Main Timeline To Stop In The Beginning On Button Press To Play And At The End Stop Again?

Feb 1, 2008

I just got Flash CS3. I'm trying to get my main timeline to stop in the begining, on button press to play and at the end stop again. In AS2, you would just put stop(); on the first keyframe and stop(); on the last key frame and program your buttons accordingly.

The stop(); does not work!!!! It's driving me crazy. What am I missing? I've gone through the tutorials in Flash and they don't work either.Also, if you have MovieClip that contains an animation and you don't want the movie clip to be on a continuous loop how do you stop it from playing. In AS2, I would put a stop(); on the last keyframe of the movieclip's animation. This also does not work in AS3.

Play A Certain Number Of Frames Then Stop-from Anywhere On The Timeline

Jun 10, 2009

Okay, so I've got a happy little movie that shows an atom diagram. Every seven frames shows an electron popping up in the ring around the nucleus. This is all contained in a movie clip. I want a button that when pressed, tells the movie clip with the atom to advance the seven frames ( making an electron pop up ) and then stop. The same button if pressed again, will advance the movie clip an additional seven frames ( thus adding another electron ).

I've looked around quite a bit but haven't found a solution that will work for me. Also, I am working in AS2. (if you're feeling especially helpful, do you also know how to do the same but in reverse? I've found how to play movie clips in reverse, but not for a certain frame interval.)

Actionscript 3 :: FLEX - Disable Spacebar - Hold Down Spacebar And Drag The Mouse To Pan

Mar 6, 2012

When it starts, I switch tab to nr.2 (default is tab 1). I need to be able to hold down spacebar and drag the mouse to pan, but when I do this it switches back to the first tab. So the spacebar is triggering it to switch. I've tried using a custom lass that extends tabNavigator, like the code below, but it's not working. Also tried setting focusEnabled = false without luck.

IDE :: Go To/Play Next Frame On Mouseclick Or Spacebar?

Dec 2, 2009

I'm going to by chance include a message I sent out to a colleague in the off-chance someone also has a solution to it, but it also pertains to my issue. Skip to the bolded part below for just the question I have.I've been tasked with converting a Powerpoint presentation into a Flash presentation. I was considering manually doing it, but it seems like it would take an awful long time (240 slides, with videos and animations) - plus I don't know how to export the animations on individual slides over to Flash other than recreating them entirely.

I found a handful of programs on the Web that advertise that they will convert PPT to Flash (swf) and I tried a few to see which if any I should purchase. All of them had issues. Some either didn't run entirely or the end result was graphically ugly, videos weren't carried over (a problem I could easily rectify if the thing was an FLA where I could add videos back in that way), or animations were either mangled or ignored best tackle this challenge?Okay, so I basically started to just recreate the entire thing in Flash, using PrtScrn for backgrounds after deleting objects (then pasting in Photoshop and exporting as a PNG-24), as well as copying graphics into Photoshop as well to export as PNGs. No idea what to do about animations yet. Videos I can add back manually.

But anyways, as I do this, the movie is automatically advancing through every frame when I preview. I'm not sure how to go about setting up my Flash so that it only goes to the next frame when someone either presses the mouse button or the spacebar (either would be fine, I think).So that's my main focus at the moment. The other stuff is definitely part of the whole deal, but my main question is:ow do I set up Flash so that it only advances to the next frame when a mouse button or spacebar is pushed?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Add Pause / Play Via Spacebar To External SWF

Oct 18, 2010

I have been searching all morning and cannot find a solution to this. I have a 60MB SWF published from Camtasia and I would like to add the ability to pause/play the clip using spacebar. The file is too big to import into the library (Flash CS5) or at least I assume so because it keeps crashing when I try. So I thought I would create a new flash movie and have it just reference the clip externally. I have tried a couple methods each are resulting in different errors.

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 Making A MovieClip Play It's Frames, Then Stop On A Main Timeline Frame?

May 12, 2010

I am currently in the middle of making a "sniping" flash game. In the first level there are a series of moving targets which are also movie clips. Inside the movie clip there is a 7 frame animation of the target exploding. Inside that is a tween of the target moving up and down. And inside that there is a plain old button.

What I want to happen is when you click on the moving target it explodes and brings you to a new frame of the main timeline. (ex. Main Timeline frame #27) But I'm pretty sure it thinks I was to play the seven frame animation of it exploding and then go to frame 27 inside the movie clip, rather then frame 27 on the main timeline.

Here's what my AS looks like on the target (ActionScript 2.0 is what I'm using.)

on (press) {
on (release){

So how do I make it explode and then take me to frame 27 on the main timeline?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Play / Stop Button - Current Audio File To Play The Next One

Feb 27, 2012

I have created two buttons for separate audio files. Essentially if you click on the button it will play and stop. This works great! I have also injected a SoundMixer.stopAll(); to ensure if you click between both buttons that it will stop the current audio file to play the next one. My problem is when I select the 2nd button for the first time everything seems to be's when I attempt to click on the first button again, that it will require 2 clicks and then it stops and plays accordingly...anyone know how I could eliminate this annoying two click process?

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 - Modify From Just Play To Play/stop (toggle)?

Sep 21, 2009

I have modified the original to include more head shots accompanied by audio clips. I have worked out the playing of the clips on release. I realize now that people may not want to listen to entire clip. Each mug shot serves as the button to hear the person talk. I do not know how to modify the button code for it to be a toggle. I guess it would need to be some kind of "play if, stop if" The only part of concern is loading playing the the audio, no changes need to be made to the rollover functionality.

mugWidth = 60; //change these if you change the size of your mugshots
mugHeight = 60; //change to your mugshot height
//instantiate sound and textformat classes
