How to return to the main stage from inside a symbol


I'm going absolutely crazy trying to get back to the main stage from inside a symbol.

To open the symbol on a click of the main stage...

var mySymbolObject = sym.createChildSymbol ("practiceScene", "Stage");

It works, I get the symbol

To return to the main stage from within the symbol on a click...

sym.getComposition () .getStage () .play () [0]; or sym.getComposition () .getStage () .play ('home');

This does NOT work, I can't get the symbol.

Help, please!



Obliously your symbols are hiding the main timeline. If you put this in your steps, click on events, it will remove the symbols and go to home label.

I put a square home and hide it when not on the House. Thus, it shows only there.

sym.getComposition () .getStage () .stop ('home');

sym.deleteSymbol ();

So basically, you will need to remove the symbols and recreate them when you need.

But I could be wrong.

Here is your file with this correction: I once on home and the other at the opening.

sym.getComposition () .getStage () .stop ('open');

sym.deleteSymbol ();

    Here in this scenario, you will need to create a new user account on the phone, and then delete the old account. If you try to delete the old account before adding a new user account on your phone, it can create more problems. I suggest posting your query to create a new user account on the Windows Phone forums and check, you can also ask then how to remove the old account from Windows Phone.

  • I can only access my Inbox in how to return to the main menu?

    When I open Thunderbird, only the Inbox is available without the normal other elements on the left side as sent, trash etc. I can find no way to return to the normal homepage.

    Looks like you have disabled the files pane.
    Press the alt key to display the Menu bar if it is not already displayed.
    The Bar Menu select View-Layout and make sure the folders pane is checked.

    If it is checked and the pane is not displayed, move your mouse on the left margin of the window of Thunderbird. Watch the cursor to set up a double arrow head. When this is the case, left click, hold and drag to the right to drag the pane to records on where you can see.

  • Referring to a button on the main stage of within a movieclip

    I'm banging my head against the wall on this.

    On the main stage, I have a button that I made invisible once the file is loaded.  Inside a movieclip, I have the actionscript 3 code on frame 15

    button_mc. Visible = true;

    I want the button becomes visible at the end of this movieclip.  I do not use an external file as3, I put the as3 code into its own channel on the first image.

    I know it has something to do with the path to the button, but I can't understand it.  If there is someone who can point me in the right direction for the referencing of the authorities with the name of the instance that reside on the main stage of inside a movieclip, I would be very grateful.

    Thank you

  • With the help of A6, must create menu screen which allows the user to click a button creates a branch to other screens and return to the main menu. When returning to the main screen on which button will be gray or inactive.  How can I do this?  I created

    I am trying to imitate a piece of equipment.  I need the user to be able to click on the specific buttons that have the user to another or screens.  After viewing these screens that will be the user to the main screen where the user which buttons were pressed and which still needed to be pressed.  I create buttons image with the 3 States - who has worked except when the user returns to that slide is reset to zero, and if the user does not see the 3rd State of the button.  How can I get this 3rd State of stay after the user returns to the main screen?

    You can not 'keep' a State, that's what I said in my first answer: "you can create an image with that look of '3' State, make it invisible and show it with the same action when a button is triggered. You will need to insert extra that third picture, first hide it out and make it visible to the advanced action, which I explained. I called this additional 'Done_one' image in the example. The three States you're talking about are in a totally different way to Captivate: for down, more and up-state. You can just tell Captivate to keep a low State, it will be down when the button is pressed. Where my explanation of an additional image.

    No need for all the variables. Looks like you have a lot to learn about variables and advanced actions. I don't see another easy way to achieve what you want. It is not so difficult, tons of examples on my blog.

  • How do you return to the main Thunderbird Linux window when it opens in a local folder?

    I see no possibility to return to the main window of Thunderbird 31.1.1 under Fedora 20. It always opens in the same local folder (the only tab displayed in the menu bar "File edit view...") as I was reading before "closing session." yesterday. I tried to restart the computer. Help would be appreciated.

    I think that you do not see the account folders pane.

    In, View menu | Layout and check the Folders pane.

    If you do not have a menu, hold the < alt > key and then press l (lowercase L).

    The folders pane shows your accounts and their records and IMHO, is essential to navigate around in Thunderbird.

  • How to set a variable in the main timeline of in a symbol?

    Just get started with Animate and coming from Flash, it may be apparent to my question. How do you define a variable for the main timeline of in a symbol?

    I have 24 pairs of clickable elements, each in their own symbols, and 24 of these symbols to sit inside another symbol. I want every 24 to set the global variable even when you click on it. I do not find that this question is anywhere, which makes me think that I can be stuck in a mentality from Flash and approaching the task in a bad way. (However, there are MANY discussions address showing how objects to different levels in the hierarchy.) Which is well covered).

    By the way, how to access a function on the main timeline of in a symbol?

    Adobe should consider putting on foot (or pages) support just for people migration form Flash. In the documents that I've met so far there seems to be a studied effort to refrain from mentioning Flash somehow. I imagine that there are many people out there like me who have a deep background in coding Flash, but start with Animate. We don't need help with most of the basic concepts, but we still have some pretty basic questions on how to achieve certain things in Animate because our knowledge of Flash gets in the way.

    Hi Bill,

    There are a lot of discussions here on the scope, but here's a way to create a global variable:

    code on Stage.compositionReady

    sym.myGlobalVar = 1;

    Then, anywhere in your project, you can check/set this var as follows:

    sym.getComposition () .getStage () .myGlobalVar = 2;

    And here is a way to create a global function:

    code on Stage.compositionReady

    sym.myGlobalFunction = function() {}

    Console.log ('myGlobalFunction');


    Then, anywhere in your project, you can call this function as follows:

    sym.getComposition () .getStage () .myGlobalFunction ();

  • Do the mounting of the main stage plays in reverse.

    Hey thanks all for research. I figured out how to do this with clips, but I can't do the things with the main stage. Can someone tell me a simple methood of telling the scene to continue to play in reverse, after a button is clicked, until it reaches a keyframe that will tell to stop? I'm trying so buttons will tell the stage to play a transition from the beginning to the end and then have it play in making the turn when you press the back"" button.

  • Dimensions of the main stage not corresponding with the rest

    I just open a new project in Flash. Set the dimensions of the main stage at 1000 x 800.
    That I created a movie clip symbol, which will be on page 1 of the new Web site. The dimensions are 1000 x 800. I import different graphics for the design of this page. When I import this page1 (movie clip symbol) on the main stage, it is much bigger than the main stage. So that page 1 does not fit on the main stage. Could someone tell me what I did wrong or how to fix this?
    Thank you very much for any input and I apologize for this fundamental question.
    See you soon

    When you create the instance of MovieClip, there is no canvas when you go to change his "scenario, when you drag the clip from the library to the stage on the main scenario is when you can really judge where the canvas is at... try to test your movie and see what happens. You can create an instance of MovieClip, do nothing for her, drag from the library to the center of the stage on the main timeline, then double-click it to edit it, accordingly, given the canvas gray behind her and to be able to judge where everything will happen.

  • How to return to the old Web Developer Toolbar?

    I was automatically upgraded to the new Web Developer toolbar, but it has TWO flaws. One is a big problem!
    (1) the search box to change the CSS and the "Close" button is on the right. For as long as I used it, it was on the left. So now, we must all go how we use them.
    (2) (big prob) the function of hierarchical table cells expose them, but unlike the old tool (same year), it also puts to * td * and if it breaks the layout of the site while you try just to see the 'lines' hence are cells.

    Thus, for example: a menu where just the links in shape - they go in all directions, because the ' td who show up, forcing.
