Actionscript 3.0 :: Button To Play Movie Clip Backwards?

Apr 9, 2009

I've made the outline of a site in AS3, on one of the pages it has an area that shows some text and images. If you click on the right arrow, the current info flys off to the left and the new info comes on from the right. This is done by just having a movie clip with a load of stops and code that says "absorbentInfo.play();" so it plays forward to the next bit of info.What I would like is a way to make it play backwards to the previous stop, so that it could cycle indefinitely either way.Code for the next button below.with the previous button.

Code: Select allnextButtonAbsorbent.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, nextButtonAbsorbentOver);
nextButtonAbsorbent.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT, nextButtonAbsorbentOut);

IDE :: Play A Movie Clip Backwards?

Mar 29, 2004

I'm trying to play a movie clip backwards on rollout, but can't get it to work.

I have a main movie clip, which contains a button and a movie clip. Since the area of main movie clip is larger than the button hit area, I'm trying to create the reverse effect from the button.

[AS]on (rollOver) {
forside_movie.gotoAndPlay (1); // play movie forward
}

ActionScript 2.0 :: Forward And Backwards Movie Clip Play?

Apr 15, 2009

I want to create a movie clip to play forward when the mouse hovers over it but backwords when the mouse rolls off. This sounds easy enough but I having a few problems getting it to work.

I do not want to clip to jump to a position before changing direction.

I am having problems getting the clip to go backwards on the rolloff if the foward movement has not been completed.

I thought that I could just use script to send the clip forward by one frame on roll over (frame = frame+1), and opposite on roll off but it does not appear to work - i think it may be much more complicated than this.

Apr 4, 2007

I am trying to tell flash from within a movieclip to start playing a specific frame within the main timeline only after it has finished playing the movieclip backwards. I can get the movieclip to play backwards fine but it's getting the main timeline to start from frame 1 which doesn't work. I have the following code on the first frame of the movieclip (which is called video) but it doesn't seem to do anything.[code]

ActionScript 2.0 :: Playing Movie Clip Backwards

Aug 23, 2007

I have this movie clip that is a vertical menu. the menu has a left and right button on either side and several small thumbnails inside. when you click on the right arrow, the animation plays, which just slides the thumbs along using a tween. I'm trying to get the left button to play the reverse of the animation.

this is the swf here to have a look. i hope you get the idea of what I'm trying to do.

I've been looking for a tutorial on how to do this through action script, but haven't found it yet. how can i do this so it's more efficient or through action script 2.0?

I did do the scroll tutorial before, but I would like it to go from one thumb to the next one at a time. You can also see that the animation I'm doing now is causing the left arrow to play each time.

Get A Movie Clip To Play When A Button Is Clicked ?

Apr 12, 2009

On looking into buttons, I understand that to get a movie clip to play when a button is clicked you simply place the movie clip on the buttons 'hit' state. Having done this it does not work? Have I read wrong? Also the movie clip has a background the full size of the stage area. So when I attach this to the button, the button changes size to the same size as the movie? (i.e. whole stage area). How do I keep the button in it's original size while still playing the movie clip with large background?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Play And Rewind Movie Clip Button?

Oct 2, 2009

I made a vertical list of thumbnails and converted them into a movie clip. There is a total of 20 thumbnails. I masked the movie clips so that it only shows 5 thumbnails at a time. I created keyframes at every point in the clip that 5 thumbnails are shown so that I can pause it.I was trying to use this code to scroll down from the first set of 5 to the second:

on (release) {
design_thumbnails.gotoAndPlay (20)
}

When I click the button nothing happens I'd also like to know how to rewind the movie so that when I press the up arrow it goes up to the previous set of 5.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Play Movie Clip On Button Click?

I have been using flash for a while, but AS3 is a whole new world to me.

I simply want to have a movie (box1) to play when a button (btn1) is clicked.

NOTE: The button is within a movie clip (bulb1) which is within another movie clip (trees).

I tried this, but it just kept replaying the whole animation:

Code:

btn1.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, onClick);
function onClick( event:MouseEvent):void

ActionScript 3.0 :: Get A Movie Clip To Continually Play Using A Button?

Feb 21, 2011

I am using flash. I have a layer containing my movie clip animation. Another layer contains my 2 buttons and a 3rd layer contains my action script. Here is what I have managed to do- I got the stop and play buttons to work so when the movie plays I can click play and then click stop and the animation will stop and play as I ask. I added a stop(); command at the beginning of my script so that when the movie loads nothing plays until I click play. The problem is I would like to click play and allow the movie to continually play over and over even when it finishes. However I would like to keep the movie with my stop(); command so when it loads nothing plays until I ask it to.

what I can do so that when I click play my animated movie clip continues to loop again and again.

HTML Code:
stop();
start_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, startCircle);
function startCircle(e:MouseEvent):void{

ActionScript 2.0 :: Play Movie Clip While Dragging Button?

Apr 26, 2004

I was wondering what the best way is to play a movie clip while dragging a button inside a separate movie clip. Example: I'm creating a children's book in Flash form. Some childrens' books have movement using a pull tab on the side of the page. I have created two things for one of these pages:

A) The pull tab movie clip consisting of a button inside of it. Its code is as follows:

on (press) {
startDrag(toggleDrag2,false,596.5,118.0,666.5,118. 0);
}
on (release) {
stopDrag();
}

This way (and it works), the pull tab cannot be dragged along the y axis, and its movement along the x axis is restricted.

B) A movie clip with a symbol in it that has a motion tween, 75 frames, a stop action and key frame on each of the 75 frames.
