I've got a number of movieclips on the stage and I have a
slider which I want users to use to change the height and width of
these movieclips. But how do users "select" a movieclip and then
how does the slider know which has been selected so it can adjust
the size of the selected movieclip. Finally, how do users select
another movieclip if they wish to resize that one?
Several solutions but try using this one:
set a timeline var like 'current_mc'.
In an onRelease event for the mc's the user select, set that
timeline var to 'this' which creates a reference to the clicked mc.
Your function that scales the mc should then use current_mc
to do the scaling on.
