I asked a question about the mismatch of mouse position and drawing coordinates on a responsive screen last time and was happy to hear the quick answer (divided by stage scale).
I put a button symbol and a movie clip symbol inside the movie clip symbol. Button symbols respond to mouse events, but movie clip symbols do not.
target = e.target;
if (target == app.redButton) //Button symbol work
app.config.color = "#FF0000";
app.erase = false;
app.colorHighlight.x = target.x
else if(target == app.greenMovieClip) //MovieClip symbol not work
app.greenMovieClip.alpha = 0.3;
So when I hover the mouse over the symbol, I print the symbol's name on the console.
app.on( "mouseover", function(e)
target = e.target;
The name of the button symbol is displayed, but the movie clip symbol is null.
I want to know how to put a movie clip inside a movie clip symbol and make it react to mouse events like a button symbol.
The file I practiced is on the link above. Three green circles in the center are the movie clip symbols.
It's probably because Buttons symbols have their mouseChildren property set to false by default while Movie Clip symbols don't.
So when you try go get the current target on a Button instance, you get the actual button itself. But if you try to do the same with a Movie Clip instance, the current target will probably be some shape or bitmap inside of it.
So what you can do is to set to the mouseChildren property of your Movie Clip instance to false.
Please let us know if this is what you need.
Hi, JC, thank you so much every time.
As you told me, by setting the mouseChildren property to false, the movieclip symbol responds to mouse events like a button symbol.
I am a beginner who wants to create learning content with Animate. I am learning by modifying little by little with the source files released by experts. I have a lot of fun doing this.
I think Animate is a great tool for creating interactive learning like games.
This is great. I'm glad it's working now.
Yeah. Animate is a great tool for creating simple games and learning content.
I have a GitHub repo with some samples:
Maybe you'll find something useful there.
