    Bringing in External images

    sellador315 Level 1

      Hi all,


      I'm using the following code to bring in external images, however, I would like the images to come in and be behind everything else instead of placing themselves on top of everything.


      var l:Loader;


      roll_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, roll_btnClicked);


      function roll_btnClicked(evt:MouseEvent):void {

           l = new Loader();

           l.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.PROGRESS, loop);

           l.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, done);

           l.load(new URLRequest("jackdaw.jpg"));

           l.x = 0;

           l.y = 270.25;



      function loop(e:ProgressEvent):void


           var perc:Number = e.bytesLoaded / e.bytesTotal;

           percent.text = Math.ceil(perc*100).toString() +"%";



      function done(e:Event):void


           percent = null;






      Anyone know how to do this? I'm assuming you need to tell it to sit on another layer. Not quite sure how to do this though.


      Thanks for any help.
