I must have posted 3 forum topics about various issues
surrounding this point and have learnt much useful information fro
you guys and gals. One simple point though remains that I just
cannot get the attachMovie command to grab a movieClip from the
library on the right and stick it in view somewhere..
I guess it doesnt have to be attachMovie I suppose that could
be the wrong command altoghether. I just want that mc out the
library and on screen.
Ok so... Let say Ive got a blank screen and a lone library
object "thingy". In the main timelines actionscript I put:
A certain amount of tracing reveals that there is no
thingy._x so presumably there is no thingy.
I can do:
var thingy:MovieClip = new
Now this creates enough of a thingy to make thingy._x
tracable but but doing a
just throws up an undefined and the thingy MC never appears
anyway. Attempting to manually set the depth doesnt help either.
Even if I set the _x and _y coords its still not there.. What on
earth am I doing wrong?
note also doing
to stick it to the main timeline dont work either.
If there is more than one solution (as Im sure there is) then
really I want one that allows multiple instances of thingy on
screen at once... so something like:
in your library panel, right click on thingy, click linkage,
tick export for actionscript, double check that thingy is in the
linkage id box (this is the critical step) and click ok. now, retry
