    Best Method for Strechable .swf file in horizontal but not vertical?

    neilcowley Level 1
      What is the best method to create an easy to use flash file that will allow horizontal scaling with a fixed vertical size?

      This will be for a blog header in a variable width design at Make Light Real.com

      I have tried the basic stage properties and found StageScaleMode.NO_BORDER to be an ok solution, but I'm not sure what will happen when I begin to drop active clips in on the stage. Will the stage operate from a fixed point or how will the clips orient to the stage as it expands?

      My understanding of actionscript is just enough to hack pieces of what I need together: but if you could enlighten me with the most basic understanding of which method would work best for me I'd apprecate it. I also have this method to alter the background (as a clip):

      // function which replaces all the elements with the new values
      slide = function () {
      photo_mc._x = 0;
      photo_mc._y = 0;
      photo_mc._width = Stage.width;
      photo_mc._height = Stage.width/rapp;
      if (photo_mc._height<Stage.height) {
      photo_mc._height = Stage.height;
      photo_mc._width = Stage.height*rapp;

      Should I just alter the variables there to lock the stage height?

      Thanks for your time in answering.
