ActionScript 3.0 :: Click On A MC (displayed By Another Click) To Remove It?

Apr 23, 2012

I have coded it in a way that once the user clicks on one of the images, another movie clip is shown (from the library).This is okay, but I would also like that once the user clicks on the new Movie Clip this disappears.I guess it is necessary to know if the new movie clip is on the scene or not, since it doesn't show up until the user clicks on another already shown image. I guess this is important since we need to declare the variable and the way we do it depends on its being on the scene or not.So I have tried something like this:

if (Boolean(this.getChildByName('NewMC')))

ActionScript 3.0 :: Remove Action From One Instance?

Dec 15, 2010

Say I create a movieclip which acts like a button, meaning that it has an over state, out state etc.  I then create five instance of this movieclip and give each one an instance name e.g. b1, b2, b3, b4 and b5.  Is there anyway of removing the states actions of say b1 without having to create a new button just for this?  I was hoping there was something like b1.turnOffEffects = true (In my dreams, lol).

Flash :: Remove Instance Of Video When Finished?

Mar 19, 2011

I did a file/import/video and pointed to a video on my server and this is all on the first frame. On my aa layer I have the following[code]...

As you can see, when the video finishes, it hops to frame 2 and continues to the website. What started happening on a few occasions, is the timeline would randomly jump back to frame 2 for no apparent reason. I'm assuming it's because I didn't remove the instance of the video, or something along those lines? This whole issue on;y started when I introduced the video.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Grab The Instance Name Of Something On Stage, Set It To A Variable Then Remove It?

May 17, 2011

im trying to grab the instance name of something on stage, set it to a variable then remove it.

iv tried:

Actionscript Code:
var something = object1something.removeMovieClip();

that works. problem is im setting variables at runtime depending on a user click.tried this too..

Actionscript Code:
var myvar;object1.onRelease = function() {myvar = this._name;}

tracing this out reveals that it is actually _level0.object1.also tried adding the string "_level0." + object1. still dosen' work.what im trying to do is click on objects. store there instance names into an array then remove them all when i do something else. such as press space.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Global Timer Control - Remove Instance Refs From Array?

Sep 15, 2008

I'm writing a video game and I have used timers all over the place to make everything go. Now I want to be able to pause the game, completely. Meaning, I need to stop and start all timer instances at once, or globally. So I created a Timer subclass called CustomTimer, put some statics in there, came up with the attached code. Now my problem is that I'm pretty sure I've created a memory leak, in that the instances array will just grow and wont allow or gc. So, my question is, is there an "onDestroy()" method or somesuch, that I can override, and use that moment to remove instance refs from the instances array? Or, is there a smarter way to do this? an application object with a pause method perhaps?

I've been learning AS3 lately and am trying to put together an interactive map.

What do I need to script so that if one clicks on a movie clip, the instance name is displayed?
