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: Cannot remove eventlistener??

  1. #1

    Cannot remove eventlistener??

    I have this structure for my code :

    A{ {X} {Y1} {B{Z}Y2} }

    Y1 contains addEventListener to buttonA and Y2 contains removeEventListener from buttonA,but why Y2 won't work,so the eventlistener cannot be removed?

    I'm not sure if I understand your structure?

    I would guess Y1 is out of scope for Y2 somehow? Are you sure you provide the correct reference?

    I made an example:
    import flash.display.MovieClip;import flash.events.MouseEvent;
    //A{ {X} {Y1} {B{Z}Y2} }
    var buttonA:MovieClip = new MovieClip();
    buttonA.x = stage.stageWidth/2-buttonA.width/2;
    buttonA.y = stage.stageHeight/2-buttonA.height/2;
    buttonA.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, traceCall);
    function traceCall(e:MouseEvent)
        trace("button called");
        var refbuttonA = e.currentTarget

    well,I made a trace before and just realized that Y1/addEventListener(contains playing sfx too) triggered automatically and repeated several times I don't know why this happened...so when it played the sfx,the sfx become so loud because the command plays repetitively...any solution?
