|In the last tutorial, we added the second line of text to our ecard FlashR animation. If you test the animation, you will see that the "Happy Thanksgiving" text drops down and bounces on the stage followed by the "From Our House To Yours" text sliding in from the right. |
However, we barely have time to read the second line of text before the animation repeats. We have three options to solve this problem. We could add a stop code that will stop the animation on the last frame. A second option is to add a free more blank frames to the animation in order to allow the text to display for a few seconds before the animation repeats. The third option is to stop the animation, as in the first option, but also add a replay button. Because option three incorporates the other two options, it's a good choice for a tutorial.
