If someone could set me on the way of solving this problem it would be greatly appreciated.
As stated in the title.
The back button in my flash project becomes unresponsive untill I move the mousecursor only a pixel in any direction. Strangely enough it works fine for links that are in the flash file like the navigation buttons on the left side, but becomes unresponsive as soon as I call an asfunction from within the XML file.
Its quite complicated to explain. Maybe its just best that I show the flash file and let you see for yourself.
You can download the files here.
This is what you need to do in order to reproduce the problem.:cons:
Open the swf named "hometestback.swf "in the swf folder.
Click on “sitemap” button at the top (the XML data page is loaded into the textpane)
Click in the textpane on the “partner benefits” link (its the first link under “company title”)
The new XML data is loaded.
Now hit the back button (the little arrow next to the company ::partner benefits title)
And the page will go back to the previous “sitemap” page.
However If I click on the backbutton again without moving the mouse nothing happens. (it should move back to the first page)
Well you can see the overstate of the button but the button functionality is never started.
I’ve been trying to find a solution for this for the past week.
And nothing seems to work.
In the debugger I can’t reproduce the problem, but when playing the movie as a test its still there.:ponder:
I tried making different buttons. So they would load a different instance of the button and the swf would be forced to load a new button on every page it landed.
I tried onPress, onMouseDown, onRelease none of it works.
I tried creating movieclips with the functionality of a button.
I tried mouse event listeners. So the back button would at least detect a new mouseclick.
I even tried starting from scratch and recreated the entire site all over again.
However no click of the mouse seems to be noticed by the flash player untill I’ve moved the mousecursor just a little bit.
From within the XML the only thing I call is a function inside the swf.
The back button works by inserting the last page the user was on into an array and when pressed the back button moves back to the last page (framelabel) in the array.
Wow, i’m sorry if this is confusing.
I’m not expecting anyone to solve this for me.
But I’m out of options to try and make it work so any ideas or hints of a possible solution would be greatly appreciated.:jailbreak
THX a lot!
