Attempting my first Animate project with a background in ActionScript and D3-flavored interactive SVGs but otherwise no web development experience.
I need several buttons to call the same function, and I need the function to know which button called it. In ActionScript and D3 I would have put code on the button passing the button ID, or a portion of it, to the function – something like this, with "changestate" being the function and "this.id" being the button name or ID:
But in Animate it seems we have to use event listeners in place of code attached to buttons. I haven't been able to figure out how to pass any info from the button to the function via the listener; as far as I can tell listeners don't seem to be designed to do that. I could create a separate function for each of the six buttons, but I'd rather the code be more economical and elegant than that. What's the solution?
