Why isn't the symbol animated if I mask the layer on which the symbol is located?

clear your cache.  here's that example: https://www.kglad.com/Files/forums/test.html

 

using this code:

 

this.stop();
this.c.addEventListener("click",f.bind(this));

function f(e){
this.s.play();
}

 

 

if you still have trouble, upload your fla to a file server and post a link

masking won't change the animation in other layers, masked or not.

I turned the square into a symbol that changes shape when the button is clicked.
But after I put the "Mask" option on the layer where the square is, there is no animation after clicking on the button.
Why, who knows?

your mask is interfering with the mouse interaction, not the animation

Okay,
How do I make the symbol start playing an animation as a mask that changes size?

To clarify: to make the symbol start playing animation as a mask - after the mouse clicks on a separate button.

i don't know how you could be having a problem.  here's a masked movieclip (s) that triggers the main timeline to play when it's clicked.

// this is the code

this.stop();
this.s.addEventListener("click",f.bind(this));

function f(e){
this.play();

Thanks for the example!
But I have a different problem:
Clicking on the button (separate from the symbol) should trigger a change in the symbol's shape. And this doesn't happen as soon as I mask the layer on which the symbol is located.
