How to target a named timeline which is in a symbol

(Jason) #1

I have created a timeline called TopNavTimeline in a symbol called TopNavSymbol. Is there a way that I can target the TopNavTimeline from the root scene level? Im not all that great with code but when I was still using Flash ages ago I would use the “tell_target” actions for this.

You would use this:

symbolInstance.startTimelineNamed(timelineName, direction)

(Hans-Gerd Claßen) #3

create a custumbehaviour within the symbol that rins the timeline. You can trigger this custombehaviour from the whole document.


Here’s the code-free method of doing this as @h_classen mentioned: (Shown at 1:33)
