I have been searching for hours for simple (mouse event) script that will pause my slideshow when I rollover it with the mouse....then play again when the mouse isn't over it...
I will be targeting an instance (transparent movie clip that is over the stage and it extends the length of the movie).
Any assistance would be appreciate. I have viewed tutorials of all kinds and searched the forums...
It plays on a loop on my blog. www.creatingwithkaiser.blogspot.com
I created it using flashcs4, very simple. I am only just learning actionscript, but it seems like this shouldn't be too difficult. I read several things on adding mouse events, but something always is a miss.
This is what I ended up using and it worked.. pause_btn was the instance name of a rectangle that I place over the stage, made it transparent. So that is what was the target for the mouse event...I am not sure how it worked but I pieced another reply from Ned for something similiar and worked it out! Took me a couple of nights, but now I get the script and can modify it to work for other things. I hope. Thanks for your help.
