Hi all,

I got the attached code off of the site from a tutorial.

The code when pasted in a frame will pause that frame. It works fine. My issue is if I then paste the same code in another frame Flash starts to kick out errors about multiple definitions of the same function, etc.

I want a function that I can define in say the first frame of a timeline. Then in another frame of the timeline I am able to set the pause time and call the function to pause the timeline.

So for example say I want the following pauses:

Frame 1: pause for 2 seconds.
Frame 20: pause for 3 seconds.
Frame 35: pause for 2 seconds.

What is the code I would place on each frame??

So to recap, I would like to define a function that pauses the timeline. Then on any frame where I would like a pause I can set the interval of the pause and execute the pause.

Thank you.
var timelinePause:Timer = new Timer(2000, 1);
timelinePause.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, timerHandler);
function timerHandler(evt:Object):void {;
