Hello there, I am stuck with changing from a random
attachMovie to an orderly attachMovie set up
The initial setup was for a mc to be randomly picked and
displayed from a pool of mcs
This was realised with having four levels
a) pool of movieclips "mcPool"
b) movieclip with "mcContainer" to which mcs of "mcPool" are
randomly attached, by changing LinkageID with Math.random
c)another movieclip holding b) to tween it into motion with a
stop function at the end of the timeline.
d)Scene1, attaching movieclip c) to a container and removing
movieclips at the end of the timeline.
The stop function at the end of c) in combination with the
removing of mcs at the end of d) initiated the random pick from the
pool in b) with each loop of the timeline of d).
Now I would need b) to pick from the pool in a certain order.
I cannot think of a way how I can get b) to count and the to store
the incremented variable so that it is available again when d)
attaches c) again after the timeline loop.
I realise that I might have to reorganise the whole construct
and would be happy about help.
although I not certain that I completely 'follow' the whole
procedure (lol) there would a few ways to go about this. it sounds
like a FOR loop isn't what you're looking for since it will execute
'all' of the loops until the condition is satisfied and then move
on in the code block. so i think that what you may need is to store
the values (mc linkage names) within an array (as Strings) and then
track an index variable that is used to access the next element in
the array. if you are uncertain of being able to call 'back' to the
mcContainer clip from d) when the time comes to increment the
variable - you could also use a method on the root to control the
entire operation - call to the method from d) and increment the
variable within the method 'after' the selection from the array has
