It's posible manage a timelineMax that's in external SWF?

Recommended Posts

I put this code in main SWF to acces at external SWF

 

var MiEntorno:MovieClip = loaderEntorno.rawContent;
 MiEntorno.pauseEntorno();

 

this runs my function (at external SWF) , but i can't pause the timelineMax

 

public function pauseEntorno():void {

		trace("PAUSE")
		timelineSlider.paused=true;
		timelineSlider.invalidate();
	}

Hi lluc666,

I think the syntax is incorrect here (but I might be wrong):

 

    public function pauseEntorno():void {

            trace("PAUSE")
            timelineSlider.paused=true;
            timelineSlider.invalidate();
         }

 

Try this instead:

 

    public function pauseEntorno():void {

            trace("PAUSE")
            timelineSlider.pause();
            timelineSlider.invalidate();
         }

Hi X10,

 

I tried it but pause() didn´t work.

 

Only work "timelineSlider.invalidate();"

 

thanks

Either one should work - these both do the same thing:

 

myTimeline.pause();
myTimeline.paused = true;

 

If it's not working for you, I suspect there's a problem elsewhere in your code, but it's very difficult to say without seeing an example FLA that clearly demonstrates the issue. Feel free to post one, but please remove all unnecessary code. No need to post your production files - just the simplest isolated demo would be great.

ok, I will post it.

 

some questions...

 

Is a good practice load some externals SWF (like sliderMicroSite Greensock) in a main SWF?

 

And load external SWF that's load external images?

 

sorry for my english and thanks

You forgot to include the FLA for entornoSliderprova.swf, but I think I might see the problem. You are using tweenTo() to create a tween of the timeline's currentTime. Basically, that pauses the TimelineMax and creates a TweenLite instance that changes the TimelineMax's currentTime value over time.

 

Pausing the TimelineMax doesn't magically stop that tween instance (which is separate and outside of the TimelineMax). Think about it this way: let's say you have a MovieClip timeline that has 100 frames and you have a stop() action on frame 50. At frame 50, it would obviously stop, but then if you do TweenMax.to(mc, 2, {frame:100}) it will make that MovieClip act as though it is playing even though it's not (really) - it's just that the tween itself is scrubbing the frame value manually. The same concept applies here with the TimelineMax instance. It can be paused but if you tweenTo() a certain value, it creates a separate tween that affects the currentTime of the TimelineMax.

 

The solution would be to pause() that tween that is created by the tweenTo() call. For example:

 

var tween:TweenLite = timelineSlider.tweenTo(10);
//then later...
tween.pause();

You're right!!

 

I didn´t know that´s tweenTo create an intance. Now I understand why currentFrame of timelineSlider runs but a could'n pause... very good explanation!!!

 

 

Is TweenTo the only way to navigate to a especific point in a timeLineMax?

 

 

I bought the club greensock 2 weeks ago and I'm very happy with it and with the big help of this forum, a lot of thank...

Yes, although I suppose you could addCallback() at a specific spot in the timeline and have it call a function that stops the timeline. Then you could just play() and wait for it to stop, but I think tweenTo() is much more elegant. And of course you could pause() the timeline and create the tween yourself manually like TweenLite.to(myTimeline, 2, {currentTime:5, ease:Linear.easeNone});

Fantastic. Thanks for being a Club GreenSock member!
