    Stop a setTimeout function?

    LordMysterious Level 1

      Hey guys


      I have a setTimeout that shows a symbol after ten seconds. However, if the user clicks on a button within those ten seconds, I want the setTimeout to stop.


      So far I have this code to set up the setTimeout in the click tab of the stage:


      if (playing)


           timerName= setTimeout(function() {


           }, 10000);



      Now this works a treat, however, I have this line to stop it, called by another function:




      However, it's not working


      Where am I going wrong?
