    delaying statements

    Level 1
      I've read some of the topics on delaying statements in this forum, but am still confused. I want to use an alpha tween on a movieclip and once the tween finished, I want the movieclip to wait 5 seconds before it reverses tween. My code is as follows:



      Thank you in advance!

          I created an example of what you can do here. I made a note in the code and also placed a box on the stage to show you what's going on. Let me know if this helps yoyo, I mean you... that was funny...

            Shandy, I appreciate the time and effort you put into responding to my posting. Thank you. I'm a newbee to AS, so I don't quite understand all the lines in the code you provided me. I kept researching this issue after submitting my posting and was able to use the code below that seems to do the same thing.

            I've now ran into another issue :). Now that I have mc_1 fading in/out, I want it to fade in, wait for 5 seconds, fade out, and wait for 20 seconds before looping. Currently, the amount of time that it waits between fading in and fading out is the same. In other words, I want mc_1 to be fully visible for 5 seconds and once it fades out, fully invisible for 20 seconds, and then loop again. I hope this makes sense.

            Thanks again Shandy.

              The script you attached is just another way to do it (a little more compact in design), but whichever way you understand is best. I took the code you attached and added additional code to create the effect you want. I added notes within the code. You can re-download that link for the new flash file. Let me know if this is what you are after.
