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 :: 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]

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 timer2:Timer = new Timer(3500);

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.

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;

Java :: Preventing Flooding/DOS Attacks In AMF App?

Aug 15, 2011

I'm working on the Java backend for a Flash webgame - the client and server communicate using Action Message Format (AMF). A few weeks ago, another team in our company had their product hacked by a user who decompiled the Flash client, and used an altered version to flood the backend with bogus requests. We want to prevent this kind of attack in our new game.(More details: webserver used is Tomcat, AMF client is BlazeDS.)I'd like to know what the best way to prevent this kind of attack would be. Some ideas I had:the nginx configuration seemed like the best place to handle rate limiting, but I cant find any resources on how nginx interacts with AMF. Do the AMF requests just get sent straight to Tomcat?most requests involve a userId param for the relevant user. Rate-limiting requests involving overused userIds might be one approach - however, an attacker who just wants to flood the server could easily spam random userIds.

IDE :: Preventing Flash Player Caching

Sep 8, 2009

edit: Resolved; my ActionScript function for parsing the mySQL results didn't correctly interpret a recently modified column, and the corrupted new output happened to be identical to the old output.

I have created an application that accesses a PHP/mySQL database, but it caches old information.

I used the workaround from Adobe's website, where I append '+ new Date().getTime()' to the URLRequest String, but the application continues to use the old data.

When I trace the URLRequest String and C&P it into a browser window, however, I receive the correct data.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Preventing Swf From Reloading On Page Refresh?

Sep 19, 2011

Flash CS5, CS4
Actionscript 2

What I want the SWF to do is play from the beginning when someone hits the index.php file and gotoAndStop(234) when someone goes to a sub-page (like contact.htm).What I did first was:

function checkSO() {
var SO = SharedObject.getLocal("siteSO");
if ( != undefined) {


And that worked in the sense of no cookie-it loads and plays the swf from the beginning. If

there is a cookie it starts from frame 234.

As it sits now as long as the cookie exist in the TIF everytime they return to my page it will not play the opening animation it will just jump to then end even on the index.php.

Someone else suggested:
import flash.external.*;
var currentURL:String = String("window.location.hre f.toString"));


I just don't know what string (I think) to put in the /** ...flush.. **/ part
