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 :: 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 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 {

ActionScript 3.0 :: Movie Clip ROLL_OVER Only Works Once But MOUSE_OUT Works Infinitely

Apr 11, 2011

I have a movie clip (with instance name rectangle_mc) on the stage. Within this movie clip there are two separation animations on the timeline. The ROLL_OVER animation starts on frame "over" and the MOUSE_OUT animation starts on frame "off." If I roll over the movie clip, the initial animation plays, and when I mouse out the other animation plays to restore it to it's initial state. However, once the rollover animation has played once, it will not play again when I roll over it again, but for some reason the MOUSE_OUT plays every time.

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;

This should work! I cant figure out why it doesn't. Fortunatley I discovered that it worked perfectly in Flash Player 9. But I guess it must run on FP 10, snice I was thinking to implement this in an AIR for Android application. On the stage I got a button with the instance name of: submit. In the library I have a MovieClip with the linkage of: radioButton. This MovieClip is just to frames with different grafics. It is supposed to work like a checkbox or a radiobutton.

Flash8 :: XML Works, But Not In HTML

I have created a program that pulls large amounts of data from an XML file. The program works absolutely perfect if I test it in Flash or open it in IE. The problem I have run into is that when I put the program into a webpage using the following code (neither one works), it no longer connects to the XML file. Am I missing something in the code?

PHP Code:

<object width="880" height="800">

<embed src="flash/complete_bikes.swf" width="880" height="800">

Professional :: SWF Works In Firefox Not In IE

Sep 30, 2010

Trying to recode map program to utilise modest map rather than original hand made map routines. Finished up yesterday and had squashed bugs pretty much(annoying flicker issue but that didn't appear on another web browser I figure it's flash/browser related issue). Then I realised I need to try this in IE as well. And it doesn't work. Map loads up so modest map code is working. What is NOT working is everything else. It's supposed to track locations and draw arrows to their positions.

It doesn't go to where it's supposed to initially. No arrows are drawn. No control buttons from HTML side work. Nothing. Zip. I have suspicion it could be the ExternalInterface which works differently on firefox and IE. Could that be reason? If so how does one go detecting what browser I am using and how does one need to take that into account? Or is there something else that's different between IE and firefox I need to take into account?

IE itself only gives rather mystified error message.
Message: Unspecified error(my translation since original is in Finnish)
Line: 49
Column: 5
Code 0:
Funny thing is both php file and output html file is 37 lines long...
