hi - i created an mc with instancename subtraktiv that plays automaticly until frame 31. in frame 31 i have the actionscript for drag and drop for a mc named cyan2

here is the code in the timeline of mc subtraktiv :

this.stop();

cyan2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, fl_ClickToDrag_8);

function fl_ClickToDrag_8(event:MouseEvent):void
{
cyan2.startDrag();
}

stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, fl_ReleaseToDrop_8);

function fl_ReleaseToDrop_8(event:MouseEvent):void
{
cyan2.stopDrag();
}

 

in the main scene is a button to replay the mc subtraktiv

here is the code:

button_1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_MouseClickHandler);

function fl_MouseClickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
{
subtraktiv.play();
}

 

the problem - when i klick on the button - it works - the mc subtraktiv plays again. but when i drag and drop the mc cyan2 and afterwards i click on the button to replay the mc subtraktiv - it does replay the mc subtraktiv but the moved element befor does not play anymore - it remains on the draged position.

why?

i say - play it again from frame number 1 where the element has its fixed place - why does it ignore it?

what am i doing wrong?

thanks for help !

subtraktiv needs to play a keyframe where cyan2 is at its initial position.

subtraktiv.play() continues playing subtraktiv from where it last stopped.  that's not necessarily from the keyframe where cyan2 was instantiated and because of what you report seeing, it is NOT the frame where cyan2 was instantiated.

 

eg, if cyan2 is created on the initial frame of subtraktiv, then you would use:

 

subtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(1)

 

to play subtraktiv from its initial frame where cyan2 is created and at its initial position.

thank you for your inputs - the problem is, that the way you sugest, it plays over and over again - instead of playing it once and then stop.

my idea is, that the mc_subtraktiv plays whithin itself until frame 31. on frame 31 of the mc_subtraktiv is the code to drag and drop the mc_cyan2.  if i click on the button on the main timeline, the mc-subtraktiv should play again from frame 1 - but it does it only with the mc's i did not drag and drop before.

the drag and drop does obviousley not only work on frame 31 of the mc _subtraktiv. when i drop it somewhere it is out of control... it does not move at all anymore. what am i doing wrong?

are you saying this.stop() fails to work on frame 31 of mc_subtraktive after working once?  ie, mc_subtraktive loops after its first stop at frame 31?

 

if not, what do you mean by:  "..it plays over and over again..."

yes i am saying this.stop(); on frame 31 of mc_subtraktiv which is not on stage but in the library.

the idea is that it is loading a new instance every time i put the button, to make sure, that it really starts at frame 1 with the original position of cyan2. but it does not. after i drag and drop and then click the button - it should load the instance new. but it obviously don't. the cyan2 stays where it was before.

here is the code

maybe you see, what i do wrong? thanks so much for your help!

var neueInstanzSubtraktiv:Subtraktiv = new Subtraktiv();
addChild(neueInstanzSubtraktiv);



button1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_MouseClickHandler);

function fl_MouseClickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
{

	trace("Mausklick erfolgt");
	
	
	neueInstanzSubtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(1);

}



neueInstanzSubtraktiv.cyan2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, fl_ClickToDrag_2);

function fl_ClickToDrag_2(event:MouseEvent):void
{
	neueInstanzSubtraktiv.cyan2.startDrag();
}


this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, fl_ReleaseToDrop_2);

function fl_ReleaseToDrop_2(event:MouseEvent):void
{
	neueInstanzSubtraktiv.cyan2.stopDrag();
}

you'll need to reset cyan2's position or create a new Subraktiv instance.  eg, the former:

 

button_1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_MouseClickHandler);

function fl_MouseClickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
{

subtraktiv.cyan2.x = whatever_x;

subtraktiv.cyan2.y = whatever_y;
subtraktiv.play();
}

unfortunately this does not work. after clicking the button, the mc subtraktiv does not play anymore. it stays static in the whatever_y position if i wirte the script the way you suggest.

the mc subtraktiv is in the library and the mc cyan2 inside is a blue dot, animated with single frames, that moves in mc subtraktiv from one place to another. i think this is correct.

then i load the mc subtraktiv with

var neueInstanzSubtraktiv:Subtraktiv = new Subtraktiv();
addChild(neueInstanzSubtraktiv);

the idea is, that it loads it new and after i click the button, it plays it from the original position - but it doesn't.

what am i doing wrong?

use:

function fl_MouseClickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
{

neueInstanzSubtraktiv.cyan2.x = whatever_x;

neueInstanzSubtraktiv.cyan2.y = whatever_y;

it still does not work! after clicking the button, the mc subtraktiv does not play anymore. it stays static in the whatever_x, whatever_y position if i wirte the script the way you suggest.

if i click the button, it should play the neueInstanzSubtraktiv from frame 1 to frame 31 again - but it doesn't. why?

thanks for help again!

if you want to play from frame 1, use:

 

neueInstanzSubtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(1);

 

but i think we've already gone through that option though possibly you tried subtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(1) because you gave incorrect information at that time.

i did exactly the way you suggest. it does not work !

if i write neueInstanzSubtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(1);

it only plays from frame 2 - i controlled it with a blue line only visible in frame 1 and a black dot only visible in frame 2 of the mc neueInstanzSubtraktiv - they should blink up, when i click the button.

the black dot blinks up when i wirte neueInstanzSubtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(1);

the blue line and the black dot blink up when i wirte neueInstanzSubtraktiv.play();

this seems to me quite strange...? if i write neueInstanzSubtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(2); it plays from frame 3

if i write neueInstanzSubtraktiv.gotoAndPlay(0); it still plays from frame 2

why does it not play from frame 1 if i wirte so?

someone will probably need to download your fla and correct your code.
