    Passing Data from a Local variable

    trex007
      I have attached an onRelease event for a mc which increments the value of a variable by 1. The Whole functionality is inside another function.. Now hows it possible to make the data of the variable available globally, i.e if i want to use that data somewhere else in the same file.

          Hello there,

          Put your variable on the root timeline, like this

          var clipCount:Number = 0;

          function moveRight()
          {
          clip_mc.onRelease= function()
          {
          clipCount++;
          }
          }

          If you use a function that calls your variable from a different timeline (e.g. inside a movieclip or on a button), use _root to target it.

          _root.clipCount++;

          Hope that helps
