I have a number of dynamically created MovieClips that are
used to draw stuff into them. Because the content may be erased,
the MCs have to clear() themselves sometimes. Now I want to have a
kind of grid drawn also in those MCs, some small crosses every 200
pixels. To have the grid remaining when the drawn content is
cleared, I attached another MC to every draw-MC, and draw the grid
into those. That way the grid doesn't get deleted, but it is above
the drawn content. =|
So, is there a way to have the grid below the content? I
tried to attach the grid-MC with a very low depth, but this doesn't
change anything. I guess I could create another MC with a higher
depth than the grid and draw into that one, but this seems a bit
awkward, and I'd have to change quite a lot of code. Are there any
other things I could try?
thanks for the response, but it didn't work out. I guess I
should explain again: the grid is currently above the things that
are drawn by the user. I want it the other way, the grid should be
in the background and the drawings over it.
In the Flash Help, it says that everything drawn by AS is
under the content that was added in the Flash IDE. Now the grid
isn't created in the IDE, but it seems to be the same for any
attached MC: it's above the AS drawing.
Because the MCs I draw into can be moved, I want the grid
attached to those MCs. So I guess the grid can be drawn into the
MCs (and redrawn every time the MCs clear()), or I have to draw
into another MC inside the main MC that is above the grid MC. As I
don't want the 2nd (I want to draw directly into the main MC), I
just see the 1st option here... or are there other ways?
