How to remove child?

When beginning without any key pressed the ryustance_mc plays as it should.
When right or left key is pressed the ryuwalk_mc plays but the ryustance_mc plays at the background. How to remove it from the holder
The thing is when I stop pressing any of the keys then ryustance_mc must play again.

function control(event:Event):void
if(rightKeyIsDown) {
holder_mc.x += speed;
if(leftKeyIsDown) {
holder_mc.x -= speed;


Please help me.
Thank You

addChild/removeChild Problem   (171 Views)
I have no ideo why that smily face is in there or why there are some random spaces, like in that "s ayhelp" and "st ophelp" business. Those aren't in my code. Everything else in the code looks correct.
Can't remove all loaded children in a gallery because can't close() a loader!   (416 Views)
0 down vote favorite This is the code i used in a gallery that loads images sequentally. My problems comes in when you have to open a different image album and have to eliminate all the previously loaded children in the movieclip. The problem is that sometimes the user leaves the album page before ALL the pics laod so when they click on a new album to open it a new image is placed somewhere else cause the loader has already been launched. I've tryd to close() the loader but it doesn't seem to work. I'd appreciate it inmensly if you can give me a hand.

I keep getting an ArgumentError: Error #2025: The DisplayObject supplied must be a child of the caller. now... what i'm doing is adding a child on every frame (a mc)... pushing it into an array and then checking the whole array to see if nay have hit their target scaleX's as below Code: for (var i:int = this.ball_array.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) { if (this.ball_array[i].scaleX >= 1) { this.removeChild(this.ball_array[i]); } } there's obviously somit worng with the way i'm doing this. Does anyone have any ideas Cheers Jimmy

removeChild from inside a class   (128 Views)
, I have a hopefully very simple problem. I created two children from my document class "MainClass". One (hero) is of the class "HeroDo" and another is from the class "canDy". Code: public static var hero:HeroDo=new HeroDo public static var blue:canDy=new canDy public function MainClass () { this.addChild(blue) this.addChild(hero) ... Now the simple thing I want to do is to remove the "blue" child from within a function of the "hero" child and the hero child to remove itself from "its inside". I tried this, but it gives me an error. :C Code: removeChild( I'm very new to AS3, so sorry if that is a stupidly easy question.
Flash question about removeChild()   (126 Views)
Hi. So, I read this article "What removeMovieClip() Becomes in AS3" here on kirupa, and I still don't get something about it. So I put an MC on the stage using addChild(), which I linked to a class in the properties. That class checks (among other things) the Y-position of the MC in each frame, and then removes it from the display list when it reaches a certain position. Now, the code keeps running of course, and thus try to remove the MC each frame, since it still seems to be at the wrong position. Since it has already been removed, I get error messages of course. I could put most of the code of that class in a try/catch thing or check with some if's whether the MC is still on the stage. However, depending on the amount of MCs I put on the stage this way, I'd end up with quite some amount of useless code that would check stuff each turn. Now in that article was said: However, removeChild() will not remove the instance from memory, only the display list so it is not seen by the user. If you need the movie clip to be removed from memory, you will need to make sure there are no variables left that reference that movie clip. For class properties, null is used; for dynamic properties, delete. My question is: Do I then have to manually delete every variable, listener, property etc that might be associated to that clip So first the event-listener that checks each frame where the MC is, then the variables containing other information about the MC and so on... or is there some kind of function that does all this for me

Does BitmapData.dispose() remove memory occupied by its Bitmap   (170 Views)
, This is my scenario 1: I upload an image 2: Without altering it,I make a copy of it and use it display to users in resized format note: I won't display the original image. 3:Now when user deletes the resized image,i need to delete the image loaded as bitmap i.e. the original image which i won't be displaying For that I used bitmap.bitmapData.dispose() method.But,it doesn't free up the memory taken by the bitmap. For instance at initial state the memory usage is 58 Mb and upon loading 3 images the size increases to 87 Mb. And when I delete all the images the size decreases to 81 MB only. So,I feel the loaded bitmap is not completely removed. Any idea what should I do

removeChild?   (127 Views)
hello. How do I remove a child for good I am loading some text via xml and when I go to remove the child and load the next text, the next set of text goes on top of the old set of text because it is still in the sprite that was used and is being reused for the new text. I used removeChild(masterHolder); and then called the function which loads the next xml text. If that does not make sense pls let me know!

Making a generated movieclip self destruct (remove from screen) after x seconds?   (154 Views)
I'm making a game where little parcels appear and if they aren't dragged to the correct zone within 5 seconds, they disappear and the player loses points. The problem i'm having is that i'm generating the movieclip parcel objects as follows: function generateMCByString(id:String):MovieClip { var mcObj:Object = null; mcObj = getDefinitionByName(id.toString()); return (new mcObj()) as MovieClip; } Then creating the movieclip and adding it to the screen depending on certain conditions as follows: mc = generateMCByString(currentParcel); mc.value = currentParcel; addChild(mc); mc.x = 386.9; mc.y = -100; mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, dragStarter); mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, dragStopper); tweenMove0 = new Tween(mc, "y", None.easeOut, -100, 238, 3, true); currentParcel is 1 of 3 (randomly selected) movieclip names (redParcel, yellowParcel and orangeParcel). What I need to do is add some code to say "after a movieclip has been generated...if it is still here in 5 seconds time..." It sounds simple but I can't figure it out for the life of me! I've tried setInterval with something like: timedProcess = setInterval(timeCheck, 5000); but how can I pass the actual movieclip "handle" along with the function so that timeCheck knows which movieclip to delete Any suggestions gratefully received!
