    Cysir, you said this is a personal logo, yet you've used the plural of studio in the logo. Do you really have more than one studio?

    Not that I'm a pro on chinese dragons but I can't say I've ever noticed one that didn't have feet; usually they have talon like appendages often without a joint like a knee or elbow... I enjoy the colour...

    I was going for the chinese dragon look with no limbs on it. Also I wanted to keep it simple.

    What are you trying to say with this logo? If I'm being honest, all of the iterations are bland and feel more like a some decoration around a font instead of an engineered solution. Why four horizontal...

    Title: Help: slowing-down a for loop???

    íHola!

    My script:

    [quote]
    //Createstatictextfield:
    this.createTextField('static_txt',3,50,0,50,20);
    this.static_txt.text='ism';
    //
    //Createarray:
    varisms=['Natural','Postmodern','Surreal','Dada','Formal',' Real','Symbol','Expression','Futur','Ambigu'];
    //
    //Createtextfieldtodisplayabovearrayelements:
    this.createTextField('ism_txt',2,0,0,50,20);
    ism_txt.selectable=false;
    ism_txt.type='dynamic';
    ism_txt.text='------';
    //
    //Createmovieclipbutton:
    this.createEmptyMovieClip('ism_btn',1);
    //Addtextfield:
    this.ism_btn.createTextField('submit_txt',1,100,50 ,50,20);
    this.ism_btn.submit_txt.text='Submit';
    //
    //Buttonhandler:
    this.ism_btn.onRelease=function(){
    //Createforlooptocyclethrougharrayanddisplaycontents/elementssequentially:
    for(vari=0;i<isms.length;i++){
    trace('Nowexaminingelement:'+isms[i]);
    ism_txt.text=isms[i];
    }//Endforloop.
    };//Endismbuttonfunction.
    </CODE>

    How do I decrease the speed of the above 'for loop' each time it iterates?

    I would like the array elements to display in the (ism_txt) text box, starting really fast, slow down, and finally stopping/displaying last element of array in text box.

    Is that possible?

    Should I us setInterval?

    Obviously, I am a novice actionscripter... If I am going about this the wrong way, please let me know... maybe I should not be trying to do this all via AS?

    Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I don't know how to do it in as but if you're familiar at all with flash, you can easily change your looping speed there via the fps (frames per second) box.

      Or you could easily insert ANOTHER for loop and adjust it for the time. In Flash, is there a WAIT command? I'm not a Flash programmer at all, but the scripting language sounds a lot like C or other compiled languages...

        You could probably use a timer, but I don't know how to do that in ActionScript. Case would know, but he has been very busy lately.

          Set it up as a function and set a variable to control the interval.

          here's a tutorial on intervals and functions

          http://www.kirupa.com/developer/acti...etinterval.htm.

          alter the variable by whatever at the end of your original script either by adding, subtracting or dividing is a nice way to achieve a 'slowdown' effect

          let me know how you get on
