Is there a way I can group, let's say 3 buttons and 2
movieClips in such a way that I can show or hide the entire group
rather than do a 'setProperty' for each one. It would be nice if
the "modify/group" choice let you name the group so it could be
referenced in AS.
Well, never mind. I thought that grouping all of them
together as a single mc wouldn't work because it would interfere
with the children mc's. But as long as there's no handler in the
parent, it doesn't block the mouseclick. But still, if I had a
bunch of objects spread out all over the page that I wanted to
group ( sort of like a radio button component) is there a better
way than grouping them as a mc?
You could leave each of your moveclips separate on the stage,
give each an instance name, and then create a function that
shows/hides all of them at once. Then you just call the function
from a button action or a frame action.
