i want to create a grid where i can drag and drop items to it n save them, should i draw the grid myself and make a bunch of holders (as if i were making an inventory?) or is there a code i can use.
i am pretty good with as2 but i never took the time to really get into arrays. i come up with my own solutions, but i want to make this the right way.
for ex.sims build mode.
anyone interested in helping me out with my game also? Doesnt hurt to ask.
among the ways to do this, create a movieclip that will be one cell of your grid. you can then layout your grid (using attachMovie) using a double (row/column) for-loop and assigning each cell an appropriate name property.
that doesn't sound like drag and drop.
but if you want to attach something to a clicked cell, just do it. flash will know which cell was clicked the same way it knows which button in a list of several buttons were clicked:
var mc:MovieClip=this.attachMovie("cell_mc","cell_"+j+"_"i,this.nextHighe stDepth());
