Does anyone know the ActionScript code to close the .swf file?  I want the user to be able to click on a button, which will call a function that closes the .swf file, but I don't know the correct method to use.  Using the structure below, what code would go inside the function?

exit_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, closeProgram);

function closeProgram(event:MouseEvent):void   {      


}

Hi.

Try this:

// USING THE FLASH PLAYER

import flash.system.fscommand;

function closeProgram(event:MouseEvent):void

{

    fscommand("quit");

}

exit_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, closeProgram);

// OR

// USING ADOBE AIR

import flash.desktop.NativeApplication;

function closeProgram(event:MouseEvent):void

{

    NativeApplication.nativeApplication.exit();

}

exit_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, closeProgram);

I hope it helps.

Regards,

JC

It doesn't seem to be working.  It doesn't crash or error out, just sits there when I click on the button. So this is what I've got:

If you are using the Flash Player and you are testing from within Animate CC, it won't close. Go to your file explorer and run the SWF from there.
