Ive confused myself. Again

Ive got an mc that has this scripting on it,
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
_y = _root._xmouse;
which makes it follow the mouse, but what i need now is for the mc to stop moving when the mouse reaches a certain point on the stage. Could a button and tell target do this?

I don’t know, i am sure it’s possible. I will be listening in on this one as I would like to also know if you can make it stop by a timer or when it gets out of a certain area. I am sure its possible but don’t know how. Perhaps Upuaut or Pom would know the script for that.


yell at your computer, or turn it off, then it’ll stop following the mouse.

hopefully the area you want the mouse to be followed in is a square:

say you wanted the MC to follow the mouse within the range of 100x100 pixels, top left corner of your screen. this would be the script:

onClipEvent(enterFrame) {
if (_root._xmouse > 0 && _root._xmouse < 100) {
if (_root._ymouse > 0 && _root._ymouse < 100) {
_x = _root._xmouse;
_y = _root._ymouse;

that is a very basic script. hopefully you’ll understand what that means.

what you could also do is take a sledgehammer…or even a simple drill…
