    Positioning movie clips with AS

    asiabackpacker
      I'm using the following code to position some text clips on the stage. But the weird thing is, the clips positions come out differently than if I position them manually from within Flash.

      For example, if I set the Y position of a clip to 250 in the Properties Inspector, it comes out to be positioned at 250, but if I even write in the code textBox._y = 250, it comes out differently (about 10 pixels above 250).

      Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about, or what's going on here?

      Thanks!


      //space out the text clips

      for ( i=2 ; i<8 ; i++ ){
      textClipName = "text" + i;

      this[textClipName]._y = ((i-1) * 250);

      }
