Hi , I'm pretty much a rookie with actionscript. I need some help.
I have a movieclip and I have 3 layers within the movie clip with Shape tweens. Now i want to create either 3 buttons or shapes or graphics which, when you hover the mouse over, one of the specific layers with the shape tween, will play only once (until the mouse hovers over again).
Can this be done and is it had to do? thanks for your help guys
layers don't exist in your published swf. they are in the ide for authoring convenience.
so, there's no way to control individual layers. however, you can convert the object(s) in any layer into one or more movieclips and, movieclips can be controlled with actionscript.
Ok cheers mate. I just copied and pasted each layer into a movieclip. Is there now a way to make a movieclip play once if say,
i mouseover a graphic called "graphic1" and it plays "movieclip1"
thanks for your help
convert graphic1 to a movieclip and give it an instance name (say graphic1) and attach to a frame that contains graphic1 and movieclip1:
