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

Jun 11, 2009

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?

Jul 6, 2010

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

Aug 4, 2011

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

Oct 5, 2011

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 :: Fade Out When Mouse Leaves

Jan 30, 2011

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?

Feb 12, 2010

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

Jun 17, 2011

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 3 :: MOUSE_OUT Not Firing When Mouse Leaves Stage?

Jan 5, 2010

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 :: If Mouse Enters Area Of Stage Run Function Once, Run Another If It Leaves?

Jan 23, 2010

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

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:

ActionScript 3.0 :: Start Drag Stop Drag

My problem is when I try to create start drag stop drag on top of these swf's horizontally - I want to be able to move the whole stage horizontally containing separate columns.

I am not sure how to code it and it ends up locking the "start drag top drag" inside the columns. How can I do this so that each column is scrollable and scroll to other columns without using a scroll bar...

I have a clip that rotates to orient itself towards the mouse when the mouse is over a given area. When the mouse leaves the area, the clip snaps back to its original position.

1) the clip snaps directly towards the mouse at the moment the mouse enters the clip; I would like it to actually rotate;

2) the clip snaps directly back to its original position when the mouse leaves the clip; I would like it to ease back into position.

ActionScript 3.0 :: When Mouse Down On The Menu And Then Drag The Mouse Off Of The Menu AND Off Of The Stage, I.e The SWF (whilst In Mouse Down) And Then Mouse Up Completely Off Of The Stage?

Jun 24, 2010

I have designed a menu that When you mouse over it, a custom cursor appears. When you mouse down it disappears and when you mouse up it returns. If you happen to mouse down and then drag the mouse off of the menu (whilst in mouse down) and then mouse up outside the menu, the custom cursor disappears. All good. The only issue is: If you happen to mouse down on the menu and then drag the mouse off of the menu AND off of the stage, i.e the SWF (whilst in mouse down) and then mouse up completely off of the stage, the custom cursor appears at the point it left the menu. I have tried to fix this using MOUSE_LEAVE but this dosnt work when the mouse button is pressed down. I have attached an FLA, SWF and the AS below.

import com.greensock.*;
import com.greensock.easing.*;

ActionScript 3.0 :: "mouse Off Canvas" - Go To Frame2 When The Cursor Leaves The Canvas

Feb 24, 2011

Basically I want to go to frame2 when the cursor leaves the canvas. The code below contains no errors when tested but it still does not work.


We know that the function gotoAndStop(frame2); works in multiple situations which means the first 3 line is fine. I don't know if the problem is the MOUSE_LEAVE event or this.stage which i suppose is the identifier for the canvas. I sure that there must be an alternative code for the identifier this.stage or the whole code. Any solution on how to fire the given function in the event when the cursor leaves the canvas?
