    getTimer

    askmrkelly
      In my movie, I want to depress the mouse button and run certain commands dependent on the amount of time the mouse has been depressed. For example, if the mouse has been depressed for 3 seconds do this and if for 5 seconds do this.

      It would appear I would use the getTimer script to determine the amount of time, but how would I write the code? Also, would I need to setup variables in the code?

      Any tips to point me in the right direction would be helpful

      Thank you,

          when the mouse is depressed start a loop (onEnterFrame or setInterval would both work) and assign startTime = getTimer() (only done when startTime is undefined). then compare getTimer() with startTime to determine what should be done if that difference exceeds certain times. when the mouse is released re-initialize startTime to be undefined.
