    How to Clear a Drawing? [Mask]


    So I have a project I am working on in which I would like to teach how to cash a scratch off card. I have made the scratch and made it so it will "scratch", however my masking technique seems to not be working how it should...

    The idea is that the user would "scratch" the card and then hit "Next" after that it would load a new frame (Progress Bar would move) and then do what they need to on that frame, and so on.

    However it would seem that Flash is keeping the users "drawing" and still allows them to draw after the first frame, which is not what I want.

    First Image - Frame 1 (Before User Scratches)
    Second Image - Frame 1 (After User Scratches)
    Third Image - Frame 2 (After User Scratches)

    I am using this code to make the scratch effect:
    Actionscript Code:
    var mouseclick:Number=0;

    var mask_mc:Sprite = new Sprite();
    maskedbg_mc.mask = mask_mc;

    stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseD);
    stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE, mouseM);
    stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, mouseU);

    function mouseD(event:MouseEvent):void {
    mouseclick = 1;

    function mouseM(event:MouseEvent):void {
    if (mouseclick == 1) {
    mask_mc.graphics.drawEllipse(mouseX, mouseY, 70, 60);

    function mouseU(event:MouseEvent):void {
    mouseclick = 0;

    Any ideas on what to do?

    Thank you!

    Two easy steps to go about it:

    1. Once the "Next" button is clicked, remove the event listeners allowing the user
    to draw or, better yet, use a Boolean variable that can turn false and disable the
    permission to draw.

    2. To clear your canvas from any graphics, use

    Actionscript Code:

    Hope that helps
