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: AS3 Show and Hide MovieClip Buttons

    AS3 Show and Hide MovieClip Buttons

    Hi Guys and Girls,

    i know this question has probably been asked alot of times now, but im still unsure...

    I was looking to make 2 buttons; one that hides a movieclip that is playing on a slide, and one that shows it again. I've heard theres a few ways to do this but none of them are making much sense to me (i previously made some buttons that play, pause and stop a movieclip, and i think im stuck in the wrong frame of mind to do these next 2 buttons...)

    Any help as to how to tackle this task would be greatly appreciated

    You need to add the mouse click event listener to your buttons then use visible or alpha property to hide and show the buttons.

    I have attached a simple fla which has the functionality you desire.

    It requires Flash CS3 and is written in AS3.
