Hi Folks,

Now that AS3 is dead, I'm trying to convert all my animations but I was never a good coder to begin with, so here goes.

Many of my animations were a single frame with multiple movies on the frame.  So I might have a button in one movie call (?) another movie to perform some function.  Bad description, but here's what I mean:

 

nextButton1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, toNext1);

function toNext1(event:MouseEvent):void
{
Object(this.parent).overviewText.alpha=0;
Object(this.parent).GovernerLine.gotoAndPlay("On");
Object(this.parent).Filter.gotoAndPlay("Purge");
}

 

Is there a way to do similar calls in Javascript?

Do I need to rebuild with every single object in the frame and make a very large timeline?

Something in between?

 

I'm sure I have a steep learning curve ahead.  Suggestions for flattening the curve anyone? 

 

Thanks!

AS3 and Canvas documents use the exact same hierarchy model. https://helpx.adobe.com/animate/kb/as-to-html5.html

Thanks!

I'll check the doc link to see if the commands I wrote will work.
