I have a movie clip containing about 200 other movie clips. I
want to write a fuction that returns the name of the clicked movie
clip. Ofcourse iI want to avoid to write 200 separate handlers for
each movie clip. Any clever idea?
Thanx in advance
Without any handlers, you would need to do a hittest for the
mouse position with every MC instance to get the clicked MC. This
isn't very nice, because it would have to loop through the
instances every time a click occured. Maybe it's better to assign a
handler to each MC in a loop, that returns the instance name or
something like that. See attached code; note that it will assign
the event to *every* MC in _root.
