I think that there should be a "When tab opened" block.

For things like thumbnails. I thumbnail could have a script like:
when tab opened ::
show




when green flag clicked
hide








Some people had trouble understanding what opening a tab meant, so please click on this link. You just opened a tab to my profile.

or, you could set the thumbnail to hide when the project starts and make it show manually.

@dvargasews means when a new tab is OPENED, NOT when the tab BUTTON is PRESSED.

My thoughts on this suggestion is can you please list some examples of how and why this would be used?

  1. It's going to be difficult to remember to set all of them.
  2. It will be annoying when I want to edit it.
  3. That will work for some things but not everything.

…this is the point of the green flag?

The project can't run before the green flag is clicked due to the nature of how the flash player works. That is why the green flag is there - it is the only way to start the project running.

No, it's so it's like that before the green flag is clicked, like how sometimes, in a project, some sprites will show before the green flag is clicked and others won't.

Thumbnails are quite different from the actual project itself, by the way.

I am not seeing a point in this. Could you list some examples on how this would be useful and explain?

Explain “Game Mechanics.” Mechanics itself can relate to forces and motion, or how things work. I would have preferred a detailed explanation that would help me understand this suggestion better.

Well, I originally thought it was impossible - there was some thread years back where somebody said that the Flash player won't run anything until it is clicked, which is the point of the green flag.

This may still be true, but I can't get a source on it.

However, the only real use I could see for this block is setting the thumbnail (anything else could be considered “”“malicious”“” - ie I don't want a project to run anything before I click the green flag) so a much simpler feature would simply being able to set the thumbnail.

Yeah, like maybe adding a feature to specify the sprite's starting size, visual effects (ghost, color, fisheye, whirl, brightness, etc…), direction, costume, show/hide, etc… I could use something like
when [time v] > ((timer) - (99))
show the thumbnail
, but that would make the thumbnail always show, and I don't want that.

It's when the tab is opened for the first time, so before anything is done.
