How to stop/play a sound loop?

Hello, I managed to make the sound loop start when the frame loads using this code:

createjs.Sound.on("fileload", handleLoad);
createjs.Sound.alternateExtensions = ["m4a"];
createjs.Sound.registerSound({
	id: "audioLoop",
	src: "sounds/myAudioLoop.ogg"
});
function handleLoad(event) {
	var audioLoopInstance = createjs.Sound.play("audioLoop", {
		interrupt: createjs.Sound.INTERRUPT_ANY,
		loop: -1
	});
};

When I try audioLoopInstance.stop(); or audioLoopInstance.play(); though, nothing seem to happen.

 

The stop all sounds seem to work, although I don't know how to play it again after that:

stopEverySounds = function () {
	return createjs.Sound.stop();
}

stopEverySounds();


I am trying to learn to use the sound instance thing. How do I make audioLoopInstance to start the sound again?

var audioLoopInstance doesn't exist when your handleLot function completes execution. try: var tl=this; createjs.Sound.on("fileload", handleLoad); createjs.Sound.alternateExtensions = ["m4a"]; createjs.Sound.registerSound({ id: "audioLoop", src: "sounds/myAudioLoop.ogg" }); function handleLoad(event) { tl.audioLoopInstance = createjs.Sound.play("audioLoop", { interrupt: createjs.Sound.INTERRUPT_ANY, loop: -1 }); }; and then you can use this.audioLoopInstance.sto...

var audioLoopInstance

 

 

 

doesn't exist when your handleLot function completes execution.

 

try:

 

var tl=this;

 

 

createjs.Sound.on("fileload", handleLoad);
createjs.Sound.alternateExtensions = ["m4a"];
createjs.Sound.registerSound({
	id: "audioLoop",
	src: "sounds/myAudioLoop.ogg"
});
function handleLoad(event) {
	tl.audioLoopInstance = createjs.Sound.play("audioLoop", {
		interrupt: createjs.Sound.INTERRUPT_ANY,
		loop: -1
	});
};

 

 

 

and then you can use

 

this.audioLoopInstance.stop(); // if "this" is the current timeline

 

or

 

tl.audioLoopInstance.stop();  // in the frame var tl is defined

 

or if you want to toggle the sound off and on using an instance t, try

 

var tl = this;
var n = 0;
this.stop();
createjs.Sound.on("fileload", handleLoad);
createjs.Sound.alternateExtensions = ["m4a"];
createjs.Sound.registerSound({
id: "audioLoop",
src: "z_sounds/chimes.wav"
});
function handleLoad(event) {
tl.audioLoopInstance = createjs.Sound.play("audioLoop", {
interrupt: createjs.Sound.INTERRUPT_ANY,
loop: -1
});
};

this.t.addEventListener("click",tF.bind(this));

function tF(){
if(n%2==0){
this.audioLoopInstance.stop();
} else {
this.audioLoopInstance.play();
}
n++
}

Thank you, I didn't know you can only use the var thing only in that frame itself, and that I'd have to use this if the stop()/play() code is in another frame.

you're welcome.

 

as a rule:

 

use var when you don't want the variable to persist (outside a function if defined in one or outside the current frame if the frame changes).  

 

use "this" if you want the variable to persist.

 

 

eg, if attached to a frame:

var var1 = 3;  // var1 is undefined outside this frame

this.var1 = 4;  // this.var1 is defined throughout the timeline.

 

function f(){

var var 1 = 33;  // var1 is undefined after f completes its code execution

}

 

eg,

 

function f(){

if(!var1){

var1 = true;  // this line of code will execute every time f is called. 

}

}

 

function f(){

this.var1 = true;   // when this line executes, this.var1 is defined inside and outside f and on every frame of the timeline that contains f

}
