    stage.width help

    Man213Ba213rt123

      hello.

      I have an object (plane) and I am controlling its size using plane._height =, plane._width = ...etc.

       

      how can I constrain the proportions so they gradually get bigger until they reach a set size (ie h=268 w=318)

       

      so i want the plane to grow from say (h=13 w=15) until it gets to (h=268 w=318)

       

      i am also using a size listener

       

      is there an easy way to do this, or do you just have to be reallyyyyy good at math?

      thanks as always

          if your plane starts at the correct proportion, store that in a variable and use it:

           

          var aspectRatio:Number=plane._width/plane._height;

           

           

          then when you want to increase the _width, for example, use:

           

          plane._width = whatever;

          plane._height=plane._width/aspectRatio;
