    Timers and Functions

    I've been having trouble in creating a game where I need to disable some buttons so that an animation can play. I've tried using a function to call a timer, but I keep getting a coercion error. Can someone steer me to where I need to go to be able to figure this out?

    We need your code to help you.

    Here is the code that I was using
    Here is the code that I'm using:

    Actionscript Code:
    var animationTimer:Timer = new Timer (5000, 1);
    animationTimer.addEventListener (TimerEvent.Timer, function2);

    function function1 (e:MouseEvent):void {
         animationTimer.start ();
    }

    function function2(e:TimerEvent):void {
    //the events that restart the game
    }

    Nothing in the code you posted will throw a coercion error. Post the full error message, and the line that causes the error and any code that tells us more about that line, particularly variable types.

    Sorry if I've been unclear...I was trying to be concise.

    Right now, through tinkering with the code, I'm getting this error at Line 13:
    1119: Access of possibly undefined property Timer through a reference with static type Class.

    This is the complete code that I have for the game right now.


    Actionscript Code:
    stop();

    var userSelect:String = new String ();
    var compSelect:String = new String ();
    var roundResult:String = new String ();
    var attackStatus:String = new String ();
    var compNumber:Number = new Number ();
    var damage:Number = new Number ();
    var playerHealth:Number = 100;
    var compHealth:Number = 100;

    var animTimer:Timer = new Timer (5000, 1);
    animTimer.addEventListener (TimerEvent.Timer, roundReset);

    p1HealthBar.gotoAndStop(playerHealth);
    compHealthBar.gotoAndStop(compHealth);
    damage = 10;

    TimerEvent.Timer should be TimerEvent.TIMER.

    On further scanning, roundReset expects a MouseEvent, but will recieve a TimerEvent. If it needs to react to both, then have it take a plain Event.

    That seemed to work. Thanks a lot!
