Dynamic naming of multiple timelines

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I ran into a certain problem. I try to switch different products and need them to animate. The whole

content is dynamic from XML.

 

So i first created in a for loop multiple tweens with var myTween:TweenMax

Runs perferct. I have control over all "myTween".

 

But i need it to run with TimeLineMax. So I tried var myTL:TimelineMax

But "myTL" seems to be overwritten.

 

Here's the code to clarify:

for(var i:int = 0; i < fileArr.length; i++) {	

this.addChild(new MovieClip()).name = "mc"+i;	 

 var myTL:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax();
 myTL.append(TweenMax.to(..tweening code here...);	
 myTL.append(TweenMax.to(..tweening code here...);	
 myTL.append(TweenMax.to(..tweening code here...);	
}

 

So I'd need something like myTL1, myTL2, myTL3 and so on, but I don't

know how. I also tried to store each "myTL" in an array... same effect.

 

So... anybody has an idea how to dynamically naming new Timeline Instances within a for loop?

I'd definitely recommend storing them in an array - it's pretty messy to just create a bunch of variables like myTL1, myTL2, etc.

 

var timelines:Array = [];
for(var i:int = 0; i    this.addChild(new MovieClip()).name = "mc"+i;   

  var myTL:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax();
  myTL.append(TweenMax.to(..tweening code here...);   
  myTL.append(TweenMax.to(..tweening code here...);   
  myTL.append(TweenMax.to(..tweening code here...);   

  timelines.push(myTL);
}

 

Then you'll have a "timelines" array with all your instances.
