    How to get componenet co-ordinates

    Muthu Prasad

      Hi,

       

           I have a button in a canvas which is created through actionscript, when i try to get the X and Y co-ordinate of that component in clickevent it always returns o for both X and y.

       

      Even i tried with screen poperty of button it also shows o for x and y.

       

      could help me to get the exact x and y position of that component and exact width and height of that component.

       

      Thanks

          Well, the answer is just the x, y, width and height values for the object, which gives the x and y position for the object within it's container.

           

          If you just get 0 for everything, it may well be valid for x and y, but a surprise for width and height.

           

          Perhaps you could make a small example to illustrate the problem?
