Hi Folks

I am tring to create a rewind and a fast forward button for an animated tutorial in flash. The pause and play functions I now understand and are Ok, But I am struggling with the rewind and FF buttons

Currently the action script code I have for rewind is:

on(release){
     _root.gotoAndPlay(_root._currentframe-5);
}

However what I want to try to achieve is for the animation to rewind (in this case) for as long as the button is held down. I am guessing I have to do something to the downstroke frame on the button. I'm not very good at these things so any help would be appreciated

Hi there. Here we go

rewind button

on(press)
{
      function rewind()
      {
            _root.gotoAndStop(_root._currentframe-5);
      }
      intervalr = setInterval(rewind,30)
}
on(release, releaseOutside)
{
      clearInterval(intervalr)
}

fast foward button

on(press)
{
      function fastfoward()
      {
            _root.gotoAndStop(_root._currentframe+5);
      }
      intervalf = setInterval(fastfoward,30)
}
on(release, releaseOutside)
{
      clearInterval(intervalf)
}

I hope it helps :)

Here is another approach using onEnterFrame

just put the following code on Rewind button
---------
on (press) {
      _root.onEnterFrame = function()
      {
            if (_root._currentframe>6)
            {
                  _root.gotoAndPlay(_root._currentframe-5);
            } else
            {
                  _root.gotoAndPlay(1);
            }
      };
}
on (release, releaseOutside) {
      delete _root.onEnterFrame;
}
---------


and copy/paste following code on Forward button
--------------
on (press) {
      _root.onEnterFrame = function()
      {
            if (_root._currentframe<_root._totalframes-6)
            {
                  _root.gotoAndPlay(_root._currentframe+5);
            } else
            {
                  _root.gotoAndPlay(_root._totalframes);
            }
      };
}
on (release, releaseOutside) {
      delete _root.onEnterFrame;
}
---------------
