I have a small problem with controlling a flash sprite.
I have a "photo gallery" type of Flash cast member where
users may select a picture. The problem is, is when they advance to
the next frame in the Director timeline, and then go back to the
Director frame where the photo gallery Flash sprite resides, the
Flash sprite has gone back to the first frame. I want the user to
know what "picture" was selected if they go back to that frame in
the director movie , basically keeping the playhead of the flash
cast member where it is. Is there a way to get a Flash cast member
to stay on the frame and not "reload" to the first frame?
The low-tech way to do that is to stretch out the Flash
sprite sp it
spans all the frames needed (possibly your whole
presentation). Set the
sprite to be offstage during the parts that it should not be
set the loc to point(-1000,-1000) or something. When the
playhead is on
the frames where you should see it, place it where it should
That way, it will never forget it's state.
