    9scale will not work with mask

    cosmits Level 1
      Hi all
      been trying to use the 9scale feature on a moviclip that change its size
      according to an image being loaded
      and then setting it as a mask to the content

      the clip 9scale feature works as expected
      as long as it's not a mask

      did any of you tried any of the sort ?

      for example
      a gallery
      loading an external image into a clip
      i want the frame of the image to be a rounded edges rectangle
      therefore i use a clip to set the mask
      which suppose to scale itself according to the image being loaded
      9scale will not work niether with a ui layer mask
      nor with a setMask( ) unfortunatly
      here is the code
      on the stage are the clips
      set to 9scale mode in the properties via the library

      thanks

      //set width according to the image loaded
      //setMask doesn't work
      var mcl:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
      var l:Object = new Object()
      l.onLoadInit = function(target:MovieClip) {
      //trace(target._width)
      target._parent.bg_mc._width = target._width + 15;
      target._parent.mask_mc._width = target._width ;
      target.setMask(target._parent.mask_mc)
      }
      mcl.addListener(l)
      mcl.loadClip("collaborate.jpg",container_mc)
