    How can I create a generic listener?

    Digsnug
      So I 'm coding a Flash animation where there are two streams of MovieClip objects scrolling both right to left on the top portion of the Stage and left to right on the bottom portion of the Stage. Each object is attached the Stage using attachMovie() and after they cross the Stage they are removed. I want to be able to attach some kind of listener to each object so they are can respond to onRollOver() and onPress(). Does anyone have any tips?

      Thanks,

      Mike

          you can add one listener to many movieclips, but that can't be used to define actions related to a movieclip that doesn't exist when the listener is created. you'd have to recreate the listener each time a movieclip is created/attached.

          why not define those handlers for movieclips as they are attached?
