    AS3 Movie clip start and stop question.

    Jasmine_S

      Hello,

       

      I am new to AS3 and am trying to work out how to stop a movie clip from playing on mouse click. At the moment I have created a movieclip which plays when the user clicks it, but I now want to be able to stop the movieclip if the user clicks on it again.
      At the moment I have the following code:

       

      stop();
      bigTree_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, onClickplayAnimation);

      function onClickplayAnimation(event:MouseEvent):void
      {
          bigTree_mc.play();
      }

       

      The tree animation plays fine, but i want to be able to stop it if the user clicks it again.

       

      Any help would be appreciated!

      thanks!
