Dear Mr.Julian

Thanks for your prompt reply. But I have still not succeeded. I have attached a loop for creating wait. But now the spot remains in the original position (20,20) for the wait period and then the second animation starts. The first animation is just not getting executed(Seemingly). Incidentally the third parameter in the animate function should perhaps provide the delay automatically?

Well following is the modified code.

var i:Number = 0;
while (true) {

 if (i >= 20000) {
 break; // this will terminate/exit the loop


thanking you

yours sincerely

You're not waiting for the first animation to complete before starting the second one.

I am stuck in a simple animation. What I am trying to do is to move a small ball from the position (20,20) to position (400,200) and then to position (100,100). For this I have written the following code.
The animation from (20,20) to (100,100) is visible however the earlier animation from (20,20) to (400,200) is not seen at all. What can be the reason ? The total tree is as follows.(ID of the drawing is ball)
