Is it possible to have more than one timer running?
I have various movieClips that I want to do something for a certain amount of time then do something else, but I need them all to be running at the same time. Before I embark I would like to know if (so long as the timer is running inside the movieClips timeline and not the main timeline) will they work independently?
While you haven't indicated what your intentions are for creating the timers, you should be able to run several simultaneously. You should set up a simple test for yourself to answer your wondering, such as...
setTimeout(f1, 1000, 1);
setTimeout(f1, 2000, 2);
setTimeout(f1, 3000, 3);
setTimeout(f1, 4000, 4);
setTimeout(f1, 5000, 5);
thanks for yet another speedy and good answer.
You're welcome Tina.
