How do I stop my scrolling effect in Flash

Hey Guys

I have this setup where I want the movieClip to scroll up and down the page but it seems to flick back to the beginning.

It's kinda hard to explain but I have attached the swfs and code that run the scrolling effect for you to have a look at and get an idea of what is happening.

I just want the bio.swf file to stop at the top and bottom of itself and not "repeat" itself. I don't really know why it is.

Any help as to what I'm doing wrong?


Thanks

L
onClipEvent (load)
{
   ycenter=600
   ;
   speed=1/10;
}
onClipEvent (enterFrame)
{
   var distance=_root._ymouse-ycenter;
   _y+=(distance*speed);
   if (_y > 0) _y=-2000;
   if (_y < -2000) _y=0;
}

Open in new window

Try this:

onClipEvent (enterFrame)
{
   var distance=_root._ymouse-ycenter;

   if (_y < 0 && _y > -2000)
_y+=(distance*speed);

}

Hey Jason

Sorry for the late reply - just saw this now.

I just tried it and it worked great! Thanks heaps. The only problem is that when it stops it doesn't head back the other way. I need it to continue to scroll back and forth. Do I need to ask another question or can this code be edited to achieve that.


Thanks again

I know the transition can be hard. We got used to the ease of use ActionScript 2 had, but honestly, it became problematic later on, especially if designers were involved in the project and found it easy to add code as they saw fit. So, this artic…
