Flash - How To Create Toggle Play / Pause Button

Jan 27, 2010

I am new to this flash and I am using as2 for the action script I wanted to know how to create a toggle button so far this is all I have.

on (release) {
play ();
} on (release) {
stop ();

I wanted so that when you hit playit would start the animation but showing the pause button and vice versa.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Make A Simple Flash Mp3 Player With A Play/pause Toggle Button Called Toggle_btn

Jan 14, 2011

I'm trying to make a simple flash mp3 player with a play/pause toggle button called toggle_btn. The button is actually a MovieClip with two buttons inside it: play_btn and pause_btn, which live in different places on the MovieClip's timeline. That all works fine, and when I press the play/pause button for the first time, my music plays as expected.

However, when I press it again to pause, it keeps right on playing. If I push it again, the button gets all glitchy, and doesn't go into its rollover state when it should nor toggle when clicked.

Here's my ActionScript:

// load the playlist
var getFile:URLLoader = new URLLoader(new URLRequest('songs.xml'));
var numSongs:int = 0; // number of songs in playlist -- we'll set this later

ActionScript 3.0 :: Toggle Play / Pause Button In An FLA Animation?

Oct 27, 2008

I'm having difficulty adding a Play/Pause button to an FLA animation that I've created. The animation is a frame-by-frame clip with motion tweens (rather than an FLV file). I'd like the Play/Pause button to toggle between a PLAY state and a PAUSE state depending on whether the animation is already playing or paused. (It will automatically play when the user begins viewing it, so the first button state should be at PAUSE.)

I've sucessfully created the button (actually as a movie clip with the two states). I've also got the button to pause and play the animation--but I'm unable to get the button (movie clip that is) to actually toggle between the two states. Can anyone tell me a good script to use for this type of control?

I'm trying to make the code below reusable. I need multiple toggle buttons in my flash project. Right now the code below works on one button. If I continue and create more buttons, and follow the format below, I would need to create separate functions for each button.

I would like to put the reusable code in a separate ActionScript file and not in the FLA file. I am trying to put the rolloverToggle, rolloverToggle, and toggleClick in a class that I'm making.[code]...

ActionScript 2.0 :: Play/pause Button In Flash?

Aug 27, 2003

I have seen umpteen different guides on how to make a play/pause button in flash. and i cannot get it to work. I think i may pull my hair out soon.basically- i have made an mc which sits on the main timeline. i t has 2 frames, ecah of which has a stop() action in the frame. the first has a pause button with the following script attached to to the button:


i have also tried putting in nextFrame instead of gotoAndStop() -but this is besides the point as it's not even stopping!in the second frame there is a play button with the following scruipt attached to it:


I think the problem may be deeper rooted because i have looked on sevral guides and they all tell me to do a similar thing.
In fact i made a button which sat on the timeline with this script

on (release) {

and STILL nothing happened!

Flash 8 :: Simple Button Navigation - Play / Pause MovieClip

Apr 15, 2010

I have a movieclip within the main clip called "playPause" which starts with the Pause button shown. When clicked the movie clip moves to show the play button and pauses the current parent movie with the AS "_parent.stop();" when the play button is then pressed the movie plays via "_parent.play();" and reverts back to showing the pause button.

Simple so far. What is getting me is if I add a movie clip within the parent (say some scrolling object) I cannot get the added clip to pause. For example say the "parent" movie clip the playPause moveclip is within is called "intro" and the moving object is called "introObject" which is embedded in a frame along with "playPause"

What I have setup for the playPause buttons is for pausing
and playing

Actionscript 3 :: Play Pause Button In A Flash Music Player?

Nov 10, 2011

I'm trying to make a simple music player with only one button for Play & Pause the music. What I have now is a MovieClip with:

1st Keyframe: active state for play Button
2nd Keyframe: active state for pause button
3rd Keyframe: hover state for play button
4th Keyframe: hover state for pause button

The script works OK, and play and pause the music without problems as expected.

The problem comes after the second click in the play/pause button when the alternance between two states becomes chaotic. The button never returns to the play state although the music was paused.

This is the code:

/**** Objects and Vars ****/
var AutoPlay:Boolean = false;
var isPlaying:Boolean = false;

ActionScript 3.0 :: Play Pause Button On Main Timeline In Flash Movie

Jan 28, 2011

I have been trying to create a play/pause button for the main timeline in my flash movie. Created a movie clip with 1st frame - a pause graphic, then on 2nd frame - play graphic, labelled the frames 'pause' and 'play' consecutively and put a stop action on the first frame of the movieclip. Then put the following code in the actions layer of the main timeline (and gave instance name of 'ppBtn' to the movieclip):

var pp:Boolean = true;
function ppState(event:MouseEvent) {
if(pp) {
[Code] ....

It works in stopping and starting the movie but the actual movieclip doesn't toggle between the pause and the play graphics (just stays on the 'pause' state - 1st frame).
