timeline_index


Description

This variable holds the index of the time line currently associated with the instance. You can set this to a particular time line to use that one, or set it to -1 to stop using a time line for the instance (if no time line is defined for the instance, -1 is returned too). Note that this does not start the time line - for that use the variable timeline_running.

For more information on Timelines see here.


Syntax:

timeline_index;


Returns:

Real (integer - resource index value)


Example:

if timeline_exists(global.tl)
    {
    timeline_index = global.tl;
    }

The above code will assign the instance running the code a time line indexed in the variable "global.tl" if that time line exists.
