The Mouse Y is where the mouse-pointer is on the Y-axis (vertical) of the Stage. The value gets higher or lower depending on how far up on the Stage it is. It cannot be off the Stage; in the project editor, it caps at ±180. If the mouse moves out of the Flash player frame, this value is set to 180.

Example Uses

Some common uses for the Mouse Y value are below:

  • Sliders

In a project, if something needs to be adjustable, then a slider can be used that can be controlled using the mouse.

The slider button (the sprite that will slide back and forth) should have these scripts:

when this sprite clicked
repeat until <not<mouse down>>
    set [main value v] to (mouse y)
    go to x: (180) y: (main value)
end

The X position can be any value, and the main value is the value that will be controlled by the slider.

  • Moving vertically
  • Finding the mouse's Y position
  • Mousing-over an area
