How can i detect when a particular frame is left? i.e. The
user is viewing fram x, they click one of several buttons or
perform a particular action which causes the swf to move to a
different frame how can i detect when it exits the original frame
Sounds like you could add a currentframe check to all of the
buttons that change the frame. Right before the frame is changed,
check which frame you are in and if it is the original frame, do
what you need to do.
There's a currentFrame property in AS 3.0 as well as
_currentframe in 2.0
I'm not sure I quite understand your question ... if the user
clicks a button that will move the playhead ... the playhead will
leave the frame then, at that time, playhead gone ...?
unless you have something else that runs before it moves the
main timeline's playhead ... but in that case then, at the end of
that action is when the palyhead will leave the frame, place a call
there to the item that needs notification ...? You don't really
need anything to detect it.
