Adding control to a Director file to use in Dreamweaver?!

Adding control to a Director file to use in Dreamweaver?!

Adding control to a Director file to use in Dreamweaver?!

I have created a running animation in Director, runs perfectly however you can only control (ie play, pause and stop) from within the Director GUI.

However, what i need is the animation to be in a dreamweaver HTML page and can be paused, play or stopped by the user.

Do i add buttons within director and add some sort of Lingo script (will need help with this?!) or do i add buttons in dreamweaver that can control the director animation.

RE: Adding control to a Director file to use in Dreamweaver?!

Why don't you add buttons in your Director Movie.
I believe you are making a tween animation, say frame 2 to 4

In your first frame, put this:
-- put your stop animation here
-- this will loop frame 1
on exitframe me
 go the frame

In frame 4, put this:
-- this will loop your animation
on exitframe me

For controlling the movie write something like this in a button sprite:

property pPlayAnimation

on beginSprite me
 pPlayAnimation = false

on exitframe me
 if (pPlayAnimation)then
 end if

-- This will play and stop the animation
on mouseUp me
 if pPlayAnimation = true then
  pPlayAnimation = false
  pPlayAnimation = true
 end if

You can use frame labels instead of frame numbers.
Havent't try this out, but the idea is there.
