Does anyone know how I can get a third (or fourth) MIAW of
the same movie to open slightly above and to the right of the
second as the second is slightly above and to the right of the
first. Here is the code that opens the first from the movie
(glossary) playing on the stage which tells it where to open the
first time (this script is fine. I'm just including it so you can
see more of what's I've done).
Below is the script that has the problem. When this script
runs, the first window is already open because this script is
within the MIAW. It correctly places the second window in the
proper place, but then the third window opens on top of the second
instead of above and to the side.
on hyperlinkClicked me, data
tName = "glossary2" &&
string(count(_player.windowList) + 1)
aWindow = window().new(tName)
aWindow.filename = "glossary"
tRect = aWindow.sourceRect
--get rect of original glossary window that was opened from
the main movie
gWindow = window("glossary")
gRect = gWindow.rect.offset(50, -50)
tRect = gRect
aWindow.rect = tRect
aWindow.movie.sprite(3).member = aWindow.movie.member(data)
Thanks. I just solved the problem using variables for the X
and Y position and add or subtracting to them as the hyperlink is
clicked and the same when it is closed. It works great!! I'm
getting good at this.
