    Question Lost Focus Event in Flash lite???

    Hi,

    I'm working on a game that uses getTimer() to record player's score. My game uses two variables startTime & endTime & when the game is over score is calculated as (endTime - startTime). But when the game is suspended in background i need an event to be triggered so that i can pause my timer (otherwise player may cheat).
    Is there any event handler or any other way to code such situation???

    Regards,
    Pete

    Hi none800,
    Unfortunately, there is no pure Flash Lite API to detect that whether your flash content is in background or foreground. But there is a solution to your problem . Simply, use setInterval API instead of getTimer because according to my observation, setInterval get paused once your application is sent to back and get start from the same position where u left it. So, in that case ,the user cant cheat. As this is my 1000th post, you are getting a code tip as bonus :
    Code:
    //AS 2
    _global.mytimer = 0;
    function callback() {
     _global.mytimer ++;
     _stat.text = _global.mytimer ;
    }
    var intervalID:Number = setInterval(callback, 1000);
    Best Regards,
