New to Animate CC and believed I was making good progress but I have come up against a problem which I'm unable to solve (after a few hours of trying).
I have a simple animation which I want to the view to start by pressing a button.
I am using a HTML Canvas document (as I intend hosting some animations on my portfolio site)
All the elements to animate on various layers appear on frame 2, with a blank keyframe on frame 1.
The only elements on frame 1 are the background image and also the button. The button only appears on frame 1, and will disappear when the animation begins on frame 2.
The code on frame 1 start with this.stop( )'
This stops the animation from starting and all is good.
The code attached to the button is below:
This code was taken largely from the code snippets Event Handlers/Mouse Click Event, and I inserted the line 'gotoFrameAndPlay(2);'
But this does not work??
This seems a simple, common task to achieve but I am having problem with this.
Any help would be really appreciated.
That's great, many thanks.
So it was just a case of placing the word 'this.' before the frame number line.
Should have realised. Appreciate your time.
It's also changing gotoFrameAndPlay() to gotoAndPlay(). There is no gotoFrameAndPlay() command.
