My code is below. I'm simply trying to make the functions random, instead of sequential, Please help, as this is urgent!


/* Start from panel 1 */

_root.show1();

 

var fnArray = [show1, show2, show3, show4];

var counter = 0;

var intervalId;

function callfunctions() {

        fnArray[counter]();

        counter = counter+1<fnArray.length ? counter+1 : 0;

 

}

 

 

function startTimer(num) {

        clearInterval(intervalId); /* Cleared interval, because clicking each button would offset the timer */

        counter = num; /* Removed "-1" because of odd jump */

        intervalId = setInterval(callfunctions, 5500);

}

 

/* Also removed stopTimer(); because we're calling startTimer(); in each button */

 

_root.startTimer(1); /* Starts the timer for panel 1 */

below is the updated code:


var fnArray = [show1, show2, show3, show4];

var counter = 0;

var intervalId;

function callfunctions() {
 

	var rnd = random(fnArray.length);

	if (rnd == counter) {

		callfunctions();

		return;

	}

	fnArray[rnd]();

	counter = rnd;

}

function startTimer() {

	clearInterval(intervalId);

	intervalId = setInterval(callfunctions, 5500);

}

callfunctions();

startTimer();
 
 

function show1() {

	trace('show1');

}
 

function show2() {

	trace('show2');

}
 

function show3() {

	trace('show3');
