ActionScript 3.0 :: Retrieving Name Of A TimerEvent?

Feb 27, 2009

I'm using multiple timers in a script, but I would like to use the same function with a Switch to define the appropriate action corresponding to the I've tried but it says that name isn't a property of the Timer class... how can I retrieve the names (timer or timer2) within the onTimer function?

var timer:Timer = new Timer(3000);
var timer2:Timer = new Timer(3500);
timer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, onTimer);

ActionScript 3.0 :: TimerEvent Only Works Once?

Dec 3, 2010

I can only run a timer.start(); command once, the second time it will only run once instead of the value of 10 repeat.

var addTenPointsTimer:Timer=new Timer(500, 10);
var currentScore = 0;
score.text = "0";


I want to be able to have the score add the ten points one at a time rather than all at once. It works fine the first time ten points are added, but the second, third, fourth, etc time it only adds one point then stops. How can I get the timer to work more than once?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Using TimerEvent In While Loop

Oct 14, 2009

I am attempting to use a TimerEvent in a while loop. In the example I have created below, the init function should loop through the values myArray, tracing each value at three second intervals. It seems, however, that because I am incrementing the currentNum value outside of the while loop (in the timerHandler function), that the loop just keeps running until Flash stops responding.[code]

ActionScript 3.0 :: TimerEvent Preventing A GotoAndPlay?

Sep 7, 2009

I have a movie clip, asterixHolder, with multiple frames that is instructed, at times, to gotoAndPlay at a particular frame (where'currentSection' is a number):

asterixHolder.gotoAndPlay("tween"+currentSection); Nested inside asterixHolder is a clip called theAsterix that I want to continually rotate. I've been achieving this with a Timer Event:


However, when the TimerEvent code is included - or to be more precise, when the function timerHandler references asterixHolder - the previous code to send the clip to the appropriate frame does not work. Could anyone tell me why this is the case? It doesn't seem logical that calling a nested clip should prevent the parent clip from doing anything.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Starting A Preloader From A TimerEvent

Oct 5, 2009

Before I start my preloader animation, I want to play a quick animation. I was hoping to use a TimerEvent to delay the preloader from starting until the animation was over, but nothing's happening.I cobbled this together from other preloader tutorials, and since I'm not sure I understand how it all works, I shouldn't be too surprised that my hybrid failed.[code]I don't register either trace statement, but if I move this. loaderInfo.add EventListener (ProgressEvent.PRO GRESS, check_progress); out of the timer event function, then I get the trace statement just fine.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Using TimerEvent To Control Banner Animation?

Nov 18, 2009

Very new to AS3 and wasn't a strong coder to begin with - I've been asked to build a large banner revealing multiple ads (4 to be precise). My thought is to use a TimerEvent (if, then type statement) to control how long each "billboard" will be on the stage, then have the next one slide onto the stage...etc, etc... I'm finding conflicting codes out there, and don't know which to pull from. This seems easy in my head, but the AS3 code appears very complex to pull this off.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Updating A Vector.<Number> In A TimerEvent?

Apr 5, 2011

I create a timer and set it to fire events every 500ms:

t = new Timer(500);
t.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, onTick);

On every tick I would like to add the last 2 elements of a vector to an other vector:


private function onTick(event : TimerEvent) : void{
tempCoords.push(coords[coords.length - 2],coords[coords.length - 1]);

But after the 2nd tick, it doesn't add only those 2 elements but the whole other vector I really don't get what this is happening. I don't use tempCoords anywhere else in my code. The coords vector is updated in a MOUSE_MOVE event with the coordination point of the mouse.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Custom Dragger With TimerEvent. Drag From Original Position?

Apr 8, 2009

I prefer to build custom drag functions using the TimeEvent etc. Below I have some code where as when I click on a MovieClip it fires the imageStartDrag function which then begins the imageDrag function consecutively.Currently when I click and drag it moves the image fine, however it is snapping to the far left of the image.What I would like is to be able to click and drag so that the image drags from it's original point. My brain is a bit confused, what do I edit in 'imageLoader.x = mouseX;' to have it starting from it's original position and moving. (Note, I'm only testing with the X Axis atm, later it will use the Y Axis too.)

// Image StartDrag Handler.
private function imageStartDrag(e:MouseEvent):void {

Flash - Timer Object With TimerEvent.TIMER Event Globally Accessible To All Objects?

Feb 16, 2012

I am working on a very simple game in Flash. I want to make all the animations framerate agnostic, so that I can change the framerate without affecting the flow and speed of the game.I read somewhere that if you want to do that, you simply create a Timer object and attach an event listener to this timer.

What if I have many objects that have to listen to the same timer? See the code to understand what I am trying to do. At this stage nothing breaks, but the event does not fire.Here is the Main class, the one that runs on swf execution:

public class Main extends MovieClip {
private static var _stage:Stage;
private static var _timer:Timer;

CS3 : Retrieving The Last Keypress?

May 19, 2009

What I'd like it to do is find out what key was last pressed and then based on which key it was, go to a specific frame of guy_mc. So basically if the left key was the last key press I want it to go to frame "Left", if right key was the last, go to frame "Right," etc. I'm completely lost on this one and every tutorial I come across is based in AS2 which has much simpler methods than AS3.


//listen for guy_mc to see if all keys are up
guy_mc.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, allKeys);
//if all keys are up...

This all works fine.

However, I also need a way to put those sliders back in place when re-opening an existing map. This means that I need to know what the percentages of R, G and B are in a colour. I made flash trace a few of those colours, this is the output:
