I have an MC that is dynamically positioned by XML
coordinates that are stored within an XML file.
When a button is clicked, the MC moves to the specified X/Y
coordinates (which works fine). When I scale the to 75%, the X/Y
coordinates change within the MC and when the button is clicked the
MC moves to the wrong position.
How do I accurately update the X/Y coordinates based on the
current scale? Im so confused.
the effect of scaling a movieclip is dependent upon its
registration point. you should experiment by placing a movieclip
with its registration point at the top, bottom, left or right and
see the effect of changing the _xscale and _yscale.
once you do that it should become clearer to you what's
happening and why.
