I have to admit that I'm very new to AS but I'm excited about
each new thing I'm learning.
I would appreciate some input on this. I've created a Flash
Slide Presentation in v8. Rather than using timelines in each
slide, I'm trying to use AS to fade up certain elements on each
slide and then fade them out again before going to the next screen.
So far, I've worked out the kinks in doing this but now I've
taken another baby step and I'm seeing a new reaction from Flash
that I didn't expect.
Each slide has one frame. Each element is on it's own Layer
and I have an "Action" later for AS script. I'm including script
that uses setInterval to fade up each element at a set time and
this works great. However, now that I've executed gotoNextSlide, I
find that the timer I start on this slide started running when my
presentation began, not when this slide was loaded.
I have playHidden set to false on each slide, so I expected
the AS for a slide to begin once that slide was loaded, not at the
My first question is, is my perception of what's happening
correct? Is the AS on slide two running when the presentation is
Second question, is there a way to make sure that the script
on a slide doesn't execute until that slide is displayed?
Third question, should all this script be on the first slide
rather than on each individual slide?
