I'm working on a code that has a button that reveal a hidden object. Easy right? But I want the hidden object to reveal on a another frame. 

Like Frame 1: Button that reveal hidden object on Frame 2

        Frame 2: The object is revealed cause the button in Frame 1 is pressed

 

Frame 1:

NameOne.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, f1_ClickToHide);

function f1_ClickToHide(event:MouseEvent):void
{
NameTwo.visible(2) = true;
}


Frame 2:

NameTwo.visible(1) = false;

 

Don't know how that works. I test and get error

Hi.

 

In AS3 documents it's not possible to access instances that doesn't exist in the current frame. So you have to create a boolean variable and set it to true when the user presses the button. Then when the user navigates to the frame that contains the hidden instance you set the visibility value of this instance to the variable's value. Like this:

 

AS3

Frame 1

import flash.events.MouseEvent;

var hidden:Boolean = false;

function revealHandler(e:MouseEvent):void
{
	hidden = true;
}

function nextHandler(e:MouseEvent):void
{
	nextFrame();
}

stop();
yourButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, revealHandler);
nextButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, nextHandler);

 

Frame 2:

hiddenObject.visible = hidden;

 

I hope this helps.

 

 

Regards,

JC
