  • Controlling Cross-Fade with Buttons, Part II

    Dear SpringCommunity Users

    I need a button initiated cross-fade.

    I applied two of my own images to the snippet below (found on the web).

    This link is what I have so far:

    The code I found on the web being [my needs are explained below the code]:-

    import fl.transitions.Tween;
    import fl.transitions.TweenEvent;
    import fl.transitions.easing.*;
    var bg1Tween:Tween = new Tween (beforeD1, "alpha", None.easeInOut, 0 , 1 , 1 , true );
    bg1Tween.addEventListener(TweenEvent.MOTION_FINISH ,fadeOutbg);
    var bg2Tween:Tween = new Tween (beforeD1, "alpha", None.easeInOut, 0 , 1 , 1 , true );

    var bg3Tween:Tween = new Tween (afterD1, "alpha", None.easeInOut, 0 , 1 , 1 , true);

    beforeD1.nextTween = bg2Tween;
    beforeD1.nextTween = bg3Tween;
    afterD1.nextTween = bg1Tween;

    setTimeout (bg1Tween.start, 1000);

    function fadeOutbg(event:TweenEvent) { _FINISH, fadeOutbg); NISH, startNextbg); = 1; = 0;
    setTimeout (, 6000);
    function startNextbg(event:TweenEvent) { _FINISH, startNextbg); vent.MOTION_FINISH, fadeOutbg); = 0; = 1;
    setTimeout (, 1000);

    I would like users who go to the above link to be able to initiate the cross-fade between the before and after images by clicking on the "before" and "after" buttons. I've named the button stage instances "before" and "after". I want the page to load with the boy sitting alone [the "before" state]. And for users to be able to click between "before" and "after".

    Whilst I'm passionate about getting my AS3 skills to this level, they're not there yet. Could you, or any readers, please edit the above code so that it works as a button initiated cross-fade between two images?

    Due to image sizes, I'm going to apply a pre-loader. Is it kosher to use a simple AS2 pre-loader in conjunction with this, or should I stick to AS3 for the pre-loader as well? And if so, a link to a robust, simple AS3 pre-loader would also be very gratefully appreciated.

    Many thanks for your help, oh wise AS ones!

    Thanks again.

    slightly offtopic

    hi XtraNighter,

    I'm afraid your question is rather off-topic for this forum. This forum deals with the SpringActionscript framework. Your question seems to pertain to some graphical effects in Flash.
    I suggest you google around for a more appropriate place to ask your questions,
    I'm sure there is plenty of places around the net to be found where your problem can be solved easily.

    good luck,
