    Pivot/Rotation point question

    tdman2000
      Hi all, I have a question about the pivot or rotation point (the white dot). I'm trying to make an interface rotate a MovieClip depending on the mouse._x position. (if mouse goes to the left, movieClip goes clockwise & vice versa). Sure I could position the pivot point manually using the transform tool, but what if that movieClip does not exist or if its ._width & ._x changes? The MovieClip I'm trying to affect is created dynamically and populated by multiple movieClips all loaded via ActionScript thus impossible to manually change the pivot/rotation point. My question is simple:

      I need to change the coords. of the pivot/rotation point of a MovieClip with ActionScript, NOT THE TRANSFORM TOOL, is there a way?, How?

      Thanks for your help
