Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: timer and mouse event interaction

    timer and mouse event interaction

    I would like a 'MouseOver' event to trigger a timer...

    then once the designated time is up the code will instruct to 'GotoAndPlay' the 2nd part of the MC. (so the MC will play from a designated frame - no probs there.)

    I know almost nothing about timer events and believe this is probably extremely easy to do; it's just that I don't know the code required.

    I also know that a simple, but long way round, way of doing it would be to simply add a set of 'still' frames amounting to a certain amount of time. I am very curious about using timers though.

    Any help will be most appreciated,

    You can setup some simple MouseEvent functions inside the MovieClip like;


    var secondsToPause:Number = 2;

    var timer = new Timer(secondsToPause * 1000, 1);
    timer.addEventListener("timer", onTimerComplete);

    this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, onOver);
    this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, onOut);

    function onOver($event:MouseEvent):void

    function onOut($event:MouseEvent):void

    function onTimerComplete($event:TimerEvent):void

    I've attached an example to show you how to build the MovieClips, hope this helps!
