stop action on a layer

Apr 4, 2012 10:40 PM

hello forumers.


its been a while since ive used flash,and im struggeling with a command id normaly do within seconds.


im trying to add a stop action on one of my layers,i know the action script is stop ( ) ;

but i cant recall how to add it only to the particular layer.

im affecting the whole scene when i add  a new layer and do the action.


how do i get around this?


thank you.

    The stop() function is a timeline command, not a layer function, so if you place it on any layer of a timeline the entire timeline will stop at whatever frame that it is in.  If you want something to stop independently of anything else in a timeline that is animating you need to create it as a movieclip with its own timeline that you can command to stop().
