I’m having an odd issue with this onClipEvent friend…
In the main timeline, I set a variable like so:
[AS] loadingFlag = false;[/AS]
And that is fine…
Then later, in a movie clip where I load an image, I say
[AS] _root.loadingFlag = true;
trace("LOADING FLAG IS: "+_root.loadingFlag;[/AS]
And when it occurs, I get back LOADING FLAG IS: true, and that’s fine too.
Then, on the object I have the image loading into, I have the following:
trace("** IMAGE IS LOADED “);
_root.loadingFlag = false;
trace(” IMAGE LOADING FLAG IS: "+_root.loadingFlag);
And indeed, when the image loads, I get the trace statements, BUT though it traces, it does not redefine loadingFlag!
also, the second trace statement comes up as IMAGE LOADING FLAG IS: with no value afterwards…
Is there something with onClipEvent(data) where even though it’s attached to a nested movieclip, it doesn’t refer to the _root?
Suggestions, comments, all are welcome!
