    How do I add a video time trigger to control other symbols?

    BruceMCE Level 1

      I would like to use a video to trigger when other Symbols appear on the Stage at different times in the video. I've used the following code:

             var vid = sym.$("VideoSymbolName")[0];

       

             vid.addEventListener("timeupdate", function() {

                   if (this.currentTime >= 4) {

                     // Do Something This code loads a symbol into a container

                        var firstS = sym.createChildSymbol("SymbolName", "ContainerName");

                   }

              }, false);

       

       

      However, that loads the picture repeatedly, and several instances appear on the stage, so I tried using this code:

       

             var vid = sym.$("VideoSymbolName")[0];

       

             vid.addEventListener("timeupdate", function() {

                   if (this.currentTime >= 4) {

                     // Do Something This code loads a symbol into a container

                      var con= sym.$("PicPortal");

                      con.empty();

                        var firstS = sym.createChildSymbol("SymbolName", "ContainerName");

                   }

              }, false);

       

      However, that makes the loaded Symbol "flash", as it is constantly loaded and unloaded in the container.

       

      Any other ideas?
      Thanks
