Wait or popup message box

Postby Candle » Thu Oct 20, 2005 3:10 am

I have this code :
Code: Select all
Action.GoToFrame "Image101" , 0.4 , 1
Action.Message "You have combined all four pieces."

And it works but the message flashs to fast and then goes to the frame .
I would like it to wait so many sec or maybe do a popup message and not the bottom message.
So they see the massage.
Please don't PM me questions, ask here in the forums!

Candle,
I think that you could do it by using only the first line of your script and directing it to a frame called "PuzzleSolved" or something, which is identical to the current frame but with your text message, "You have combined all four pieces," on it. Then for the "PuzzleSolved" frame use the Frame Editor>General tab and at the bottom enable the timer for the desired number of seconds that you want to remain on the "PuzzleSolved" frame, and then in the same spot, set the frame destination to go to your "Image101" frame.

BTW, to display a popup message with scripting, you can use the following code:

Code: Select all
MsgBox "You have combined all four pieces."

or better:
Code: Select all
MsgBox "You have combined all four pieces.",VbInformation
