    button trigger - moving MC from a to b with tween


    Basically I have a great big movieclip that the user can move around and explore. But I also want to add buttons that will take them from their current location to a new one with a tween. So MC's current XnY pos to new XY pos...

    I've managed to get the MC to jump from one location to the next with this code:

    animation.onPress = function() {
    doodleboard.onEnterFrame = function() {
    ytarget=this._y = 1643;
    xtarget=this._x = 55.5;


    (animation being the button name and doodleboard being the MC name)

    does anyone knwo how to get it to tween to it's new location?

    try something like this. (this is untested) but should point you in the right direction

    PHP Code:
    import mx.transitions.Tween;
    import mx.transitions.easing.*;

    animation.onPress xMoveTo(doodleboard,this._x,this._y);

    myTween:Tween = new Tween(who"_x"mx.transitions.easing.Regular.easeInxStart55.53true);
    myTween:Tween = new Tween(who"_y"mx.transitions.easing.Regular.easeInyStart16433true);

    Thanks for that - almost does what I need, just a few minor tweaks to look at but definately points me in the right direction. I'll play around a bit now I've got the basics and post the code if I get it working.

    Thanks again -
