I am in desperate need of a timeline control in the form of a
slider bar or similar. All i need it to do is click and drag the
slider button to the right and play frames in a movieclip timeline
and slide it to the left reverse the animation. on release i just
need it to stop on the frame its at.
I figured this would be easy but as i am a novice i cant work
it out. Any help would be appreciated.
Well I dont remember everything about what you're trying to
For starters it depends on what version of flash...or
actionscript you using
then find a tutorial on sliders :D......after you got a
working slider on the screen......
you'll need event handlers to handle scrolling forward and
backwards.....and one that updates the position so when you scroll
frame advances as you scroll...or slide I should say so it wont
just sit there and goto the frame after you release......not that
difficult.....but you gotta get the basics down first.....like a
working slider...... :D and you gonna uses currentFrame or
something like that to keep track of frames
