Have a question about the _root.stop().
I have a pause and play feature in a flash player so the user can stop the presentation along with all the voiceover that streams with the presentation.
I used the _root.stop() in the flash player hoping it will stop the main timeline, but also other embedded movieclip timelines. It stopped the main timeline, but not the other ones.
How do I stop both timelines at the same time? the _root.stop() was not working for me.
Thank you, Brian
apply the stop() method to the other movieclips you want to stop.
my movie player pause the main timeline, but not the movieclip until, of course, it reaches the end frame of that movieclip. I need the movieclip to pause with the timeline.
The movieclip has captions that sync up with audio in the main timeline so when I do hit pause I lose the caption for the voiceover. I would normally just place the captions in the main timeline, but the user has the option of making them visible so I have them in a movieclip.
Does that help explain myself at all?
again, apply the stop() method to the other movieclips you want to stop.
for example, if you have a movieclip on your _root timeline with instance name mc1, you can use:
