    resolved [RESOLVED] Flash 8 AS2 deleting a function possible?

    Hey!

    I'm working on a game where once i have all my moviClips set, I want to jump to the game playing frame, but I can't come up with a way to delete the function that places them in the startup frame.

    My code is included in a function that enables dragging the players named placePlayers(), but when I manage to get to the game frame, the movieClips are still draggable which is what I need to avoid before trying to program the real game.

    this is the code to place the players in first frame:

    for (i=0; i<6; i++) {
    this.attachMovie("botoBarša", "botoBarša"+i, this.getNextHighestDepth());
    this.attachMovie("botoValencia", "botoValencia"+i, this.getNextHighestDepth());
    this["botoBarša"+i]._x = 100+i*56;
    this["botoBarša"+i]._y = 28;
    this["botoValencia"+i]._x = 450+i*56;
    this["botoValencia"+i]._y = 28;
    _root["botoBarša"+i].onPress = function() {
    dragging = true;
    startDrag(this);
    };

    _root["botoBarša"+i].onRelease = _root["botoBarša"+i].onReleaseOutside=function () {
    dragging = false;
    stopDrag();
    if (eval(this._droptarget) == areaPetitaN || camp) {
    positionPlayersBarša++;
    if (positionPlayersBarša>=7) {
    localReady_btn._visible = true;
    }
    }
    };

    this is the code on clicking the ready button:

    this.visitorReady_btn.onPress = function(){
    visitorReady = true;
    if(localReady == true && visitorReady == true){
    dragging = false;
    delete placePlayers(); // this is what I thought worked.
    gotoAndStop("game");
    }
    }

    this.localReady_btn.onPress = function(){
    localReady = true;
    if(localReady == true && visitorReady == true){
    dragging = false;
    delete placePlayers(); // this is what I thought worked. gotoAndStop("game");
    }
    }

    I include the swf for better explanation... drag all the players to their respective side of the field before jumping to the game frame.

    try;
    Code:
    delete placePlayers
    instead of;
    Code:
    delete placePlayers()

    thanks, but it doesn't work

    Thanks for the reply, Blink.

    I managed to rename the movieclips on the game frame and that way it works for me but I have the feeling there has to be a cleaner way to achieve the same result. A class perhaps, if deleting the function can't be done.

    Thanks anyway...

    an explanation;

    when you code the statement like this;
    Code:
    delete placePlayers();
    what you are asking the compiler to do is first execute the function, then delete the return value of the function (which in this case is probably nothing).


    when you code the statement like this;
    Code:
    delete placePlayers;
    you are asking the compiler to delete the function.

    Thanks, BlinkOk,

    will have to try again... That's what I had read in the AS Bible, but it doesn't work. My players are still draggable in the game frame and the drag function is embedded in the placePlayers function. Shouldn't it all be deleted?I'm attaching the fla, this time.

    You need to drag the players onto your respective fields as well as the goalies before the ready button pops up.

    thats not how it works. you have to disable all the onPress/OnRelease functions as well.

    How would that be done? A mouse listener event?

    Rather than defining the function in-line at the onPress/onRelease level, I think it would make more sense to var onPressFunc = function(){ } and onReleaseFunc = function() {}.

    Then simply assign to the onPress/release as btn.onPress = onPressFunc. When you want to stop using the function, onPressFunc = null or delete onPressFunc. Should do what you're after.
