View Full Version : Moving Timeline

03-01-2007, 09:14 PM
I have need to create a timeline in which the timeline itself moves depending upon mouseovers in certain areas (i.e. the mouse rolls over a button to the left, causing the timeline to scroll left). I have very little experience with Flash, and the very little I have was not exactly the most positive I have had with a program before. If you could tell me how to do this, it would be greatly appreciated, but please keep it in layman terms.:D

Well, first off, the time line doesn't move. Ever. Perhaps you mean you want the playback to go forward or backward depending on the button pressed?

There are a few ways to do this, some more simplistic than others, and some more "eye-pleasing" than others.

No one other than you will ever see your timeline. But if you are on say frame 60 of the timeline and want to go to frame 40 on a press of a button then you can just put this code on your button:


If this isn't what you mean, please explain, or show examples :)
