that's usually caused by having an off-center registration point. only objects with a centered reg point don't move when scaled.
the tooltip is a component in my flash file, a .swf. The registration point seems to be in the upper left corner. So, I put the .swf component inside of a movie clip and centered the registration point of the movie clip. When you scale the movie, it still doesn't stay on top of the button. Do the example files help illustrate my point?
you need to scale the parent after centering the child in the parent.
I think what is happening is that the whole file is scaling which is somehow messing up the positioning of the buttons.
Here's what I've done so far:
- create a movie clip of .swf file toolip and center it.
- the zoom_test.swf loads in the 2008_19.swf file to be zoomed and panned via the data.xml file
Since I created a movieclip of the .swf file tooltip, when you open up 2008_19.swf, the tooltip does not rollover the button anymore,
it is a little further away from the button.
I'm not sure what you mean by scaling the parent, because with this functionality, the whole file, 2008_19 is being scaled.
