Does anyone know how to do this? I have 5 shapes (movie
clips) that you can drag around on the screen and rotate. I need to
create a menu off to the side whre the user could click on a shape
and it would add another one of those shapes to the screen in the
main area where the user is moving and rotating the other shapes.
Thanks for the help.
The most straight-forward answer is to use attachMovie() or
duplicateMovieClip() functions. Have an array that holds reference
to the inital 5 shapes. Beyond that there is a thousand ways you
could implement this - it all depends what you want the final use
to be. I would create a shape class, which would allow me to rotate
and move each movie regardless of which shape it is. You can then
use an iterative naming convention (mc1, mc2, mc3) or push them
onto an array as they are created.
I already have the shapes moving and rotating thanks to a
tutorial from flashkit.com, is there an example that I could look
at regarding the attachMovie() or duplicateMovieClip() functions?
Thanks for your help, I am not that experienced with
