Dear all thank you for your time

I have a function called control  I use to reset a game using a set interval clear interval process. I would like to stop the reset function working at certain times to allow another function to execute. I have tried using a switch and else if statements but cant seem  get the right result, the console . log does not appear in the console if currentFrame is 0.So the concept is when the movie clip current frame is 9 the control function stops when at 0 the functions are allowed.I find the console only responds to the true function.

function control(){
	
	switch(true) 
	{
  case true:if(this.overided_mc.currentFrame==(9)){
   console.log ("overided")
// other movie clips do not act
  }
	  break;

  case false :if(this.overided_mc.currentFrame==(0)){
   console.log ("not overiden")
//other movie clips react to this order
}	
 
 }
 }

 Best Regards Peter

your conditional switch isn't very much of a conditional.  it's a flat-out true, so it's branch is always going to executed.  

 

ie, you don't understand how to use switch/case:

 

https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_switch.asp

 

function control(){
switch(this.overided_mc.currentFrame==(9)){
case true:
console.log ("overiden");
// other movie clips do not act
break;

case false :
console.log ("not overiden");
//other movie clips react to this order
}
}

 

// or, imo, better:

 

function control(){
switch(this.overided_mc.currentFrame){
case 9:
console.log ("overiden");
// other movie clips do not act
break;

case 0 :
console.log ("not overiden");
//other movie clips react to this order
}
}
