Default [AS2] While+Hittest Help


While I was making menu of my new game, I take this problem in Flash 8.

Flash 8 says :

A script in this movie is causing Flash Player to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive.Do you want to abort the script.

Yes or No.

I think, this problem from my using while and hittest. Where I make mistake ?

Codes :

credits._visible = false;
howtoplay._visible = false;
onEnterFrame = function () {
	while (man.hitTest(button1)) {
		if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
			credits._visible = true;
	while (man.hitTest(button2)) {
		if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
			howtoplay._visible = true;
	while (man.hitTest(button3)) {
		if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
			gotoAndStop("Tanitim", 1);
	while (man.hitTest(quitbutton)) {
		if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
			fscommand("quit", true);
credits = Movie Clip
howtoplay = Movie Clip
man = Movie Clip
And all buttons are movie clip.
Where is problem ?

Sorry for my bad English.

An enterframe function will fire all the lines just once at in each time the flash renders the screen. But the "while" command will loop before rendering a frame. So if something inside of the "while" loop is depending on the happenings on the screen you will get an eternal loop if you don't change those screen happenings inside of the while loop. That's why your debugger is giving you a warning. or to be more precise if the loop at the single rendering time takes longer than a 15 seconds or so then you will get a warning

So maybe something like this could work:

ActionScript Code:
credits._visible = false; howtoplay._visible = false; // buttons in array var buttons:Array = [button1, button2, button3, quitbutton]; onEnterFrame = function () {     // loop through the buttons to hittest     for(var i:Number = 0; i < buttons.length; i++)     {         // hitTest and check if the key enter is down         if (man.hitTest(buttons[i]) && Key.isDown(Key.ENTER))         {             // and now depending on which button or as             // I have here which index number of a button             // is active do what needs to be bone...             switch(i)             {                 case 0 :                     credits._visible = true;                     break;                 case 1 :                     howtoplay._visible = true;                     break;                 case 2 :                     gotoAndStop("Tanitim", 1);                     break;                 case 3 :                     fscommand("quit", true);                     break;                 default :                     break;             }         }     } };
