tween.play() not working...

Does any body know why this is not working? (action script 2)


var pictures: Array = new Array (pictures.p1, pictures.p2, pictures.p3);

button.onPress = function () {animatepictures.tween.play(); }    

animatepictures.tween = TweenMax.allTo (pictures, 2, {_x:"50", _y:"50", paused:true }, 0.1);

By the way, i need to concatenate a "this" with a string, is it possible?




name.target.onPress = function () { this+"whatever".tween.play(); }

The problem is that allTo() creates an array that is filled with tweens, not a single tween that can be controlled via play(), reverse(), pause() etc.


The v11 docs show how to insert allTo tweens into a timeline so that you can control them with those methods: http://www.greensock.com/as/docs/tween/com/greensock/TweenMax.html#allTo()


So in your case you could do something like this in v11:

btn.timeline = new TimelineLite({paused:true});
btn.timeline.insertMultiple(TweenMax.allTo([mc1, mc2], 1, {_alpha:0, _y:"100"}, 0.1));

btn.onPress = function() {

Better yet, use the TimelineLite staggerTo() method in v12


btn.timeline = new TimelineLite({paused:true});
btn.timeline.staggerTo([mc1, mc2], 1, {_y:200}, 0.2)

btn.onPress = function() {
