    using the added event listerner

    Numinus67 Level 1

      working in a canvas project. when i use the following code, the pic loads fine, but i don't get the trace alert.

       

      var page1Pic = new createjs.Bitmap("page1.0.png")
      root.addChild(page1Pic);
      page1Pic.addEventListener("added", picAdded);
      
      function picAdded(event){
        alert("Trace");
        // my goal here would be to start loading a second picture
      };
      

       

      if i use the "click" event listener, as in the following code, i get the trace alert.

       

      var page1Pic = new createjs.Bitmap("page1.0.png")
      root.addChild(page1Pic);
      page1Pic.addEventListener("click", picAdded);
      
      function picAdded(event){
        alert("Trace");
      };
      

       

      what gives?

       

      is there a better way to load one pic and display it before starting to load the next pic?
