    AS2 listener in a Class file

    clbeech Level 3
      Hey guys, I've been trying to construct a Class file to consolidate methods for a lot of 'tiles' (MCs) that get dynamiclly added to the running system on call. However many of their functions are regularly fired off (interval) by a listener/broadcaster model, and I can't seem to find any information on building a listener within an .as file? Not in the docs, or forums, google ... nothin'. I've tried several experimental methods to add a listener, but nothing seems to work. Another, facet of the problem is that the broadcaster needs to reside on _level0. Anyone have an thoughts on this?

      Thanks all.

          Have you read this article?

          EventDispatcher seems to be what you need. So what exactly is the event that these 'tiles' (MCs) are firing off?

            Yeah I sure did, thought I was on to something there too, but alas, no. The article discribes how to create and use the EventDispatcher Class within an .as file, but not how to construct a Listener to recieve a broadcast.

            The broadcaster is already running at _levelo, broadcasting at a fast interval a movement parameter to all currently existing dynamic 'tiles', which change frequently. (this is a game map, driving ... but way, way more than that, it actually is broadcasting to and moving 9 congruent, 5 layer tile stacks(800x800 ea), with as many as 100 dynamic objects per tile, and two levels of AI) ... ( oh yeah and running hit checks on all of it ... <:P )
