ActionScript 3.0 :: Can't Stop Drag After Mouse Leaves Map

I am trying to make it so when the mouse leaves the stage it stops the drag, but no matter what I do it does not work, the function I am trying to do it in is onMouseLeave();

Here is my code and the corresponding code:

import fl.controls.Slider;
import flash.ui.Mouse;

ActionScript 1/2 :: Stop A Drag If The Mouse Pointer Leaves The Stage?
I've got a large item on screen that can be dragged around by the mouse. I've simply put an invisible button on the item with:

on(press) {


but if I move the mouse pointer outside the stage area while dragging the item and release the mouse button the release is not detected and the drag stays activated and I have to bring the pointer back to the stage and click and release on the button again to stop the drag.

Is there a way to deactivate a drag when the mouse is released outside the bounds of the stage, perhaps by using a different method that doesn't rely on a button?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Stop Scroller When Mouse Leaves MovieClip
I have an Event.ENTER_FRAME that fires, to move a scrolling image bar given where stage.mouseY is located. But, when the mouse leaves the movie clip I need to force the scroller to stop. The MOUSE_LEAVE event fires when the mouse leaves the movie, but I have no way of stopping the scrolling behavior because I can't set the mouseY coordinates by hand. Is there a way to change the mouse coordinates programmatically? Can you manually trigger and event to stop firing?

ActionScript 3.0 :: StartDrag(); Seems To Stop Dragging Once The Mouse Leaves The Stage
startDrag(); seems to stop dragging once the mouse leaves the stage. Is there a way to set it to still drag when off the stage. The exhaustive search I've tried only says things about capture the event for the mouse leaving the stage, not continue any dragging or animation, etc. In more detail, I have a "flashlight" type sprite that covers everything with black, and allows the user to see a small circle of stage. The center of the circle is where the mouse is. When the mouse goes over the edge, half of the circle (or more depending on how fast the mouse moved) is still visible. I need it to at least move off stage completely.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Drag Leaves Static Duplicate In Original Position?
I posted earlier about getting a zoom effect which was solved by putting the content within 2 containers: the parent container to center the zooming & the pan container (child) to be panned on drag, however when I drag the child a copy of the original remains for some reason?basically I have this to set up the containers:

ActionScript Code:
ParentContainer = new Container();

ActionScript 3.0 :: Stop Music When Playhead Leaves Frame?
I am creating a website that should have music playing abilities. (Sounds cool that way lol). I have a music player MovieClip and in it, it has some actions. It is placed on a frame on the main timeline. I also have an actions layer that has some code controlling other contents of that page on the site.

The music player works fine but when I leave the frame which the music player is loaded on the main timeline, the music keeps playing. How do I stop it?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Fade Out When Mouse Leaves
how I could make it so that when the mouse leaves the stage, the opacity of every instance on the stage is lowered to a certain amount. And when the mouse returns, the opacity returns to normal.

I was able to come up with this code to test to see when the mouse leaves. However, I don't know how to collectively lower the opacity of every instance and test to see when the mouse returns.

stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE, mMove);
function mMove(event:MouseEvent):void {
stage.addEventListener(Event.MOUSE_LEAVE, leave);

ActionScript 3.0 :: Detect When Mouse Leaves A MovieClip?
I'm having trouble having my flash file detect when my mouse goes over and/or leaves a movieclip. I want to have a mini slideshow in my menubar which, when my mouse goes over the movieclip containing the slideshow, the pictures 'enlarge', and when the mouse leaves, the clip becomes normal size again.

This is the code I've gotten the best result with, as of yet, but it only seems to notice that my mouse leaves the movieclip half of the time, and sometimes there's a 'glitch' where the clip zooms and unzooms uncontrollably when my mouse is just next to the clip.[code]...

Flex :: Detect When Mouse Leaves A Canvas
I am trying to detect when the mouse leaves a canvas. I know about the MOUSE_LEAVE, but this seems to only be valid for the stage, not Canvas objects. P.S. I have tried the mous-out, but, for some reason, that event keeps getting triggered everytime I move the mouse. I should probably point out that I have used the Mouse.hide() and replaced the cursor with a custom cursor.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash Animation Stops When Mouse Leaves Swf?
I have a flash animation where a image is panned back and forth by moving the mouse in the direction you want to pan the image. I want to make it so that when the mouse is outside the swf, in the normal HTML area of the page, the movement of the image will stop, or better yet go to a much slower pan.

You can view the swf here: [URL]

Actionscript 3 :: MOUSE_OUT Not Firing When Mouse Leaves Stage?
I am developing a website with nav items that cover the whole stage from top to bottom (see altered image below) and it is pretty easy for the user to exit the stage with their mouse, not triggering the MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT events required to "turn off" said nav items.

Should I be using Event.MOUSE_LEAVE to detect when the mouse has left the stage, and turn off any enabled nav items? That is what I been trying to do, but have had trouble getting any output from my listener. Any ideas?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Detecting When Mouse Leaves Stage (FP 10.1)?
correct method to do this is in here http:[url]....however, Event.MOUSE_LEAVE no longer behaves this way in FP 10.1. i read somewhere that we should now be using Event.DEACTIVATE. this has not been triggering when the mouse leaves the stage area, for me.

ActionScript 3.0 :: If Mouse Enters Area Of Stage Run Function Once, Run Another If It Leaves?
my problem is I have a scrolling list. I applied a simple fade in on mouse Over and fade out on Mouse Out using tweenMax.The buttons etc within the list cause the mouse Out to fire when the mouse is still over the list. I can not set mouseChildren = false on the playlist as the buttons inside obviously need to work.

So I thought maybe I could detect if the mouse is inside a specific area and fire the tween functions that way.I could use a stage enterFrame event listener, but that would keep firing the Fade in tween while the mouse was inside the area, and same problem with Fade out tween.How can I set it up so the fade in fires only once when mouse enters the area, and fade out only once when it leaves.

PHP Code:

stage.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, playlistFade);
function playlistFade(e:Event):void{
if(mouseX >= 160 && mousX <= 400 && mouseY >= -177 && mouseY <= 100){

Jquery - Play Movie Clip On Hover Pause When Mouse Leaves
I am going to be working on a site that has various mechanical products for sale. The customer wants me to make a model and movie of each product to show how the product works. Here is an example product:

Flash Clip The problem I am having is, he wants the movie to only play when a user puts their mouse over the video. I attempted doing this with a mp4 file and it worked using jQuery, but only when in Chrome. Here is that link:

MP4 Clip I want these demos to be viewable by the largest possible audience, so I was trying to stay away from Flash (also because I don't know Flash very well if at all). Does anyone know of a way to get this video to work in other browsers like in the second example? If not, how can I achieve that same idea using Flash?
