[Flashcoders] allowing external content to acces local content

2006-03-06 Thread Tom Versweyveld

I'm trying to allow an swf (loaded from a testing server), to access the
global scope in an swf running in authoring, but I keep getting:

*** Security Sandbox Violation ***
SecurityDomain 'http://192.168.1.1/someflash.swf' tried to access
incompatible context 'file:///C|//iloaded someflash.swf'

I fiddled around with the local playback security-publish settings,
added C:\ in the online Global Security Settings Panel, and also
tried adding System.security.allowInsecureDomain in as, but nada...any
clues anyone? The problem occurs with fp7-8...

Grtz,
Tom

HI all,

I am calling the thumbnails from a folder i.e outside the fla. and it's working 
fine but the prob. is I want to call the zoom of the those thumbnails also that 
to  from outside folder. Can any one tell me how to do it? I mean it should be 
, when clicking on thumbnails it should call the zoom of photo from outside. 
The thumbnails are put in project in such a way that on clicking on next button 
it calls another thumbnail and so on. I want that on selecting one thumbnail, 
it should call the corresponding zoom from outside folder.
( Hi Nick, am trying though flashcoder but it's down perhaps, could you advise 
me directly)

with concrete budgets and concrete timespans. I have very little  
time for dabbling, exploration or otherwise advancing myself along  
paths my work doesn't naturally take me. FlashCoders, this list,

focus of the list ran in parralel to any problems i might be  
working on. I felt it was worthwhile reading posts i had no idea  
what were on about because i'd learn SOMETHING that might be  
applicable to a problem i'd run into in the future, or alter my  
approach on a current problem. Since AS3 came around, i've been  
hugely confused:
I have no idea how you guys have TIME to explore it. How Darron  
Schall has time to create an AS3 VNC viewer is beyond me, or how  
Grant Skinner can put together gModeler, or how any number of flash

to further themselves in their craft, that pisses me off to no end.  
Where. The. Hell. Does. That. Time. Come. From.


AS3 in Flash right now is a cruel tease. We have no clear

get a head start by getting into Flex and spend a bunch of time on

before it's too late, and it slams into us with Flash 9 and all the

Hi list,
I saw that Adobe decided to remove the Key class from flex and as3.
I can't seem to find the replacement for Key.isDown() in the new class.
does anyone knows where or what it is?
I'm not looking for creating an event for the key but rather track a keys
via an interval.
cheerz.

Hi,

Lots of stuff in this email, but I will just respond to this:

Flex takes what was getting good about AS and 
 implements it in a retardedly expensive solution that is of little 
 interest to a whole bunch of us. 

The Flex 2 SDK is free.  Hard to call that expensive. Flex Builder 2 is under 
$1000.  Ditto.  And FES 2 starts at free and scales up based on usage, but it 
is *not* required.

[Flashcoders] Newbiew question AS3

2006-03-06 Thread Forums @ Existanze
Hello all,

This is my first post in this mailing list after reading it for about week,
just to get the feel of thing. I have seen actionscript v3 being mentioned
here. I am a programmer, not so much of a designer, so I would be really
interested to find out more about v3, changes and new functionality in the
language. I went to the formerly macromedia site to look for changes in
flash8 but I saw no mention of as v3? Can anyone point me to a reference to
it?

 

Thank you for reading

Re: [Flashcoders] allowing external content to acces local content

Use system.security.allowDomain(http://192.168.1.1;)

allowinsecuredomain simply lets Flash allow a domain that is insecure to 
be loaded and executed if it is being served from a secure domain.  Put 
system.security.allowDomain into your loader movie.  Make sure your 
loader movie is running locally with filesystem and network access.


Read the Flash security whitepaper for more - if you google it, you will 
find it.

[Flashcoders] Please Help -- No Files in Flash Explorer

2006-03-06 Thread lieven.cardoen
I don't know what I've done (nothing I think and yet...).

 

I restarted Eclipse and suddenly I see no projects anymore in my Flash
Explorer (from FDT). When I open the Java perspective, I do see the
projects. Switching to Flash explorer, everything gone.

Filters are ok, so I don't know why the Flash explorer show nothing at
all.

 

Thx, Lieven Cardoen

RE: [Flashcoders] FF Seattle Report

2006-03-06 Thread Nick Weekes
Sounds like you havent really come across a project that needs a flex
solution rather than a flash solution.  Flex is a great tool for fairly
specific implementations (RIA's, dashboards, etc etc), whereas flash is more
general (but that comes at a price in terms of dev time).

And circa $1000 dollars is a lot less than $15000 per cpu, as per flex 1.5.
that’s why its classed as 'cheap'.

But you want the benefits of AS3 right? So you wait until the public

No one is forcing you to learn Flex, you will still get all the fun

[Flashcoders] Strange behaviour from modulus operator

2006-03-06 Thread Paul Steven
Experiencing a strange problem using the modulus operator.

Inside a function I have the following code:

var vValue1 = passed_MC._x - this.Maze_Horizontal_offset;
var vValue2 = 36;

var vTheResult =  vValue1 %  vValue2;

trace (vValue1 =  + vValue1);
trace (vTheResult =  + Number(vTheResult));

And here are the results I am getting from the trace statements:

vValue1 = 324
vTheResult = 5.6843418860808e-14



Surely it should give me a result of zero as 36 goes into 324 exactly 9
times.

The weird thing is if I just hard code the values as follows, it works

var vValue1 = 324;
var vValue2 = 36;

var vTheResult =  vValue1 %  vValue2;

trace (vTheResult =  + Number(vTheResult));

-

And here is the result of the trace statement:

vTheResult = 0

I am therefore totally confused!!!

Any help much appreciated. I am publishing for Flash 7 with Actionscript 1.0

Thanks

Because _x is not necessarily an integer, vValue1 is not guaranteed to 
be an integer either, which it must be for modulo to return the result 
you want.  Force it to be with


var vValue1 = Math.round(passed_MC._x - this.Maze_Horizontal_offset);

and it should work as you expect.

It's a result of rounding errors. The _x value is a float, and so there's a 
very small leftover value at the bottom end of the decimal places. Notice 
that your vTheResult is very, very small.


You can avoid the problem by taking Math.round(vValue1) % vValue2.

Re: [Flashcoders] Strange behaviour from modulus operator

2006-03-06 Thread Ron Wheeler
How much closer to zero where you expecting? 5 to the power of 10 to the 
-14 is zero to the limits of  modern PCs.


If you want to deal with integers make the numbers integers. If you do 
your math in floating point with a mantissa with lots of bits, you are 
going to get some bits left over at the end.
The machine is doing all of its math in binary and some/many decimal 
numbers can not be represented exactly in binary.
Think of 1/3+1/3+1/3 != .33+.33+.33 It is not just machines that have 
the problem.


You can never compare a floating point number to zero and expect your 
code to work reliably. Convert the result of modulus to an integer and 
compare that to 0.



Ron

 i believe the minute you want to manipulate sounds independent from
 one another you have to create a sound object for each sound in your
 movie. otherwise, it'll affect all sounds...as that 'sounds' what is
 happening to you.

   found out the anySound.stop() stopped all sounds.
  
   Looking at the documentation, it says you can specify what sound to
   stop using a linkage ID.  I understand that'd work fine if you use
   sound.attachSound (getting a sound from the library), but what if you
   use sound.loadSound(file)?  What is the linkageID now?
  
   Thank you,

I have taken the time to watch a few of the video on the

Adobe Labs http://labs.macromedia.com/ is the place to go for demos and

 there isn't a build of flex for osx

It would be consistent with Eclipse's cross-platform standing if one were
eventually made available.  Flex Builder 2 should install on any machine
ColdFusion can install on.

Re: [Flashcoders] Remove right click menu

2006-03-06 Thread Gaia-Tek

Here's what I've been able to find out:

Disable Flash movie right-click menu

disabling right-clicking on a Flash movie (in IE [on a PC])

so, i've complained for some time on various forums about the inherent 
security flaw of having the About Macromedia Flash Player X open a new 
browser window.


scenario

let's say you're building an intranet app as a HTA (hypertext 
application). You are putting this app into a controlled environment 
(school, library, kiosk) where the user shouldn't have permission to the 
file system (windows explorer, dos prompt, even applications that have a 
File-Open dialog). You've even written your own replacement shell for 
Windows that only shows icons for your apps or select user-installed 
apps (yes, we've done this!). Internet Explorer is one of those 
applications that you'd rather not have them being able to run, as a 
user could type c: into the URL area and tah-dah - instant access to 
the harddrive.


so, you decide that Flash would make a kick-ass front end for your app - 
what with no page refresh needed, remoting to local web services, not to 
mention all the cool visual things you can do...


you build your app, test it, place it in your secure environment and the 
very first day, someone has wiped the system clean. HOW THE #$^@# did 
that happen?


this is where you can thank all those fine folks at MM who insist that 
the best way to tell a user about their product is to take them to a 
WEBSITE... brilliant... so, what happens is of course the user 
right-clicked your interface, selected About Macromedia Flash Player 
X, which opened a new browser window, and then proceeded to have their 
way with the local machine.


/scenario

(note to MM: i appreciate all the other security features in the newer 
players, but i still think this is more of an issue than redirecting 
content is or was...)


anyways, so luckily, after several failed attempts to get around said 
blatent security hazard without writing a custom ocx that just wraps the 
flash player and passes through fscommands, i edited together some 
existing code, added some things that flash needed, and was able to 
completely disable the right-click context menu over a flash movie. 
woot! of course, as i'm focused on making this work in an HTA, this is 
PC IE specific code. i know this won't work as written in 
Netscape/Mozilla, though with the newest players, it just might with 
some slight Javascript manipulation.


so here's the scoop:

there are two things that have to be done within the OBJECT block of 
the Flash movie.


1) the Flash object has to have the WMODE parameter set to OPAQUE:

param name=wmode value=opaque

2) the Flash movie should be given an ID inline with the OBJECT tag:

object id=myFlashMovie classid=... ...

(note that this step is really optional - but we'll discuss that below)

once these are done, a small amount of javascript can be added to the 
HEAD section of the HTML page:


script language=JavaScript

// function to handle right-click anywhere on page
function handleclick() {
 if (event.button==2)
   {
 // right button (2) was pressed
 showAboutBox();
   }
}

// function that shows our custom about box
function showAboutBox() {
 popup_msg = Content Menu Disabled Trick\n\n;
 popup_msg+= This one works even over Flash content.;
 // if the source of the right click was from the Flash movie,
 // we add an about MM note
 // also, note the id tag in the flash object below
 if (event.srcElement.id == myFlashMovie) {
   popup_msg += \n\nThis Flash movie was made with Macromedia FlashMX;
 }
 alert(popup_msg);
}

// set handler function for mouse presses
document.onmousedown=handleclick;

/script

that's it! you'll now have a custom alert popping up when a user 
right-clicks anywhere on the page, including over Flash movies.


now, you might have noticed that in that code, i check the ID of the 
click event to see if we're over a Flash movie, and if so, we give a 
blurb to MM for making the fine product. However, if you have more than 
one movie on the page, you could change the test the classid of the 
srcElement like so:


 if (event.srcElement.classid == 
clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-44455354) {

   popup_msg += \n\nThis Flash movie was made with Macromedia FlashMX;
 }

That is why i mentioned that step 2 above is optional.

You could also use the over a Flash movie test to decide whether or 
not to show the pop-up. That is, you could only show the custom popup 
screen if they right-clicked on a Flash movie, thus still allowing 
right-clicking on the HTML portion of a page.


At this point, i should note that the popup screen that is displayed is 
a very important part of this whole equation. You simply can't 
cancelBubble, return false, or just set the event to nothing for this 
trick to work. believe me, i've tried. the deal is is that it seems that 
the Flash player will still capture the mouse click and show the context 
menu unless you have some other interaction

Re: [Flashcoders] random concatenated txt question

2006-03-06 Thread Byron Canfield
I don't see anything there in that code that limits the string length to
19, nor anything to reset the string to a null value upon reaching the 19.

It just keeps on concatenating onto the end of the string, but you can't
see it because of the limited size of the textfield.

Try putting a trace in your onEnterFrame() and you'll see what I mean:

_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
myTxt_txt.text = random2();
trace(myTxt_txt.text: +myTxt_txt.text.length)
};

That said, it seems to me that you're really going about this the hard
way. Each of those single-letter strings is possible to represent with a
numeric ascii value, such that there is no need for the array -- just
convert the chosen numeric value to a character at the time it is
concatenated.

Re: [Flashcoders] random concatenated txt question

2006-03-06 Thread michael . bordner
you might have an issue with using x as a global variable?   try defining 
x with var in the for loop.. or somewhere in the function.   if you do 
not use var, it should become a global variable.

Re: [Flashcoders] random concatenated txt question






I don't see anything there in that code that limits the string length to
19, nor anything to reset the string to a null value upon reaching the 19.

It just keeps on concatenating onto the end of the string, but you can't
see it because of the limited size of the textfield.

Try putting a trace in your onEnterFrame() and you'll see what I mean:

_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
 myTxt_txt.text = random2();
 trace(myTxt_txt.text: +myTxt_txt.text.length)
};

That said, it seems to me that you're really going about this the hard
way. Each of those single-letter strings is possible to represent with a
numeric ascii value, such that there is no need for the array -- just
convert the chosen numeric value to a character at the time it is
concatenated.

 this fills up my dynamic txt field. then just stops. it should keep
 producing a random string of 19 characters (the length of the txt 
field),
 then replace it every frame with a new string of random characters.
 instead
 it just fills up, then stops. ugh!

[Flashcoders] secure server communication

2006-03-06 Thread lars
hi all. i know this question has been asked a few times, but never
theless i have to ask it again: i have to do a multi-level game where
each level when done reveals a secret word and all words together
result in a end-level solution-word. the players have to register
first, dont have to play all levels in one go (means can log on and
log off and all solved level-words are stored on server side) and the
first player that makes all levels will win a price.

problem/question: are there any known problems at https connections
between server-side (php) and flash (v7)? what are the best ways to
ensure a hacker proof solution? will https and md5 stored information
inside the swf do? is there a better/safer way than a post request
between flash and server side?

sorry if this might be off-topic to some one. thanks, best: lars

You're first populating myTxt_txt with a string of 19 spaces or other
character, correct?

Are you certain that random2() is not appending a new string to the end of
the existing one? What if trimmed it down and changed it to...

function random2() {
  yy = _root.myTxt_txt.length;
  initialTxt = ;
  for (x = 0; x  yy; x++) {
j = random1();
initialTxt = j.toString();
  }
  return initialTxt;
} 

Sorry, if these are basic questions, just covering the bases :p

Re: [Flashcoders] random concatenated txt question

2006-03-06 Thread Ron Wheeler

Does this need to be inside the loop?

if (initialTxt == undefined) {
  initialTxt = '';
 }


Why not clean up the code by typing it fully to reduce or eliminate the 
possibility of silly errors.

initialTxt is never declared.

Why is this myTxt not on _root with the other one.

_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
uu = random2();
myTxt_txt.text = uu;
 trace(myTxt_txt.text: +myTxt_txt.text.length)


I have a feeling that if you clean up the code, it will suddenly start 
to work.

Re: [Flashcoders] Load external bitmap into bitmapdata?

2006-03-06 Thread Adrian Park
Hey Marcelo,

I've been playing with BitmapData for the first time this past weekend so I
stand to be corrected on what I'm about to say!

My understanding is that you can only load BitmapData from an existing image
which is already in your library and has a linkage ID. For this reason, I
don't think you can load an image and get its BitmapData. I was thinking
there might be a workaround though...

I was going to try embedding the jpg/png/gif in an swf and giving it a
linkage id in the library, then load that swf into your master movie and
attach the BitmapData from the loaded swf's library.

Possible issues? I know you can't attach library assets from a loaded swf
into another swf so the same limitation may apply with BitmapData. Again, I
thought a workaround for this might be to attach the BitmapData into the swf
you've just loaded and then clone it to a BitmapData object elsewhere?

As you can see, I've been doing a lot of thinking and not a lot of doing so
I'm not sure if this is of any help at all!

I'd be very interested to know if any of this works.

Cheers, Adrian P

I haven't dug very deeply into the tween class. Anyone know if it is
possible to do shape tweens with it (or has someone written a custom class

Well, short answer: you can't do it. It isn't a matter of building classes 
for it; you can't just modify an existing drawing.



There are two things you can do though, depending on what you actually want 
to build:


1. build a normal shape tween using the timeline, then use any tween 
class/code to control the playhead on that timeline, so you can go back and 
forth on the animation, use different times, etc.


2. build objects by code (using the drawing API). Then you'll be fully able 
to animate each of their points separately. This is overkill though and 
probably not what you want, since you will not only have to draw all your 
objects by code, but also need to create code to properly translate the 
points of one drawing to the other.

thanks for the succinct answer!

I'm coming to AS from the Director/Lingo side of the street. In Director,
the Vector Shape data type (which uses the Flash xtra/player code)
exposes all the data points so they can be manipulated through code. I
guess I assumed this was a feature in Flash that was carried over. Guess
not...

The problem is: I need to load a bitmap. I can´t embed the bitmap inside  
a

swf, because i have no control over the bitmaps.
Any other ideas?

Hey Marcelo,

I've been playing with BitmapData for the first time this past weekend
so I
stand to be corrected on what I'm about to say!

My understanding is that you can only load BitmapData from an existing
image
which is already in your library and has a linkage ID. For this reason,  
I

don't think you can load an image and get its BitmapData. I was thinking
there might be a workaround though...

I was going to try embedding the jpg/png/gif in an swf and giving it a
linkage id in the library, then load that swf into your master movie and
attach the BitmapData from the loaded swf's library.

Possible issues? I know you can't attach library assets from a loaded  
swf

into another swf so the same limitation may apply with BitmapData.
Again, I
thought a workaround for this might be to attach the BitmapData into the
swf
you've just loaded and then clone it to a BitmapData object elsewhere?

As you can see, I've been doing a lot of thinking and not a lot of doing
so
I'm not sure if this is of any help at all!

I'd be very interested to know if any of this works.

Cheers, Adrian P

[Flashcoders] LoadSound from shoutcast server

2006-03-06 Thread flashcoders flashcoders
 Hi,

I have try to make a radio mp3 player who play mp3 stream coming from
server.
All works fine in the Flash Api or when y test locally the swf.
code
ur = http://193.201.103.19:9100; http://193.201.103.19:9100/;
mySnd = new Sound();
mySnd.loadSound( ur,true);
/code

But when i tried to build a desktop application using mprojector or
Screenweaver Os the stream don't load.
This is not a security issue, so i tried to put my swf on a web server...
doesn't work anymore.

For FireFox i find a trick by adding a /; just after the url and that
work:
code
ur = http://193.201.103.19:9100; http://193.201.103.19:9100/;
mySnd = new Sound();
mySnd.loadSound( ur+ /;,true);
/code

But it doesn't works in IE and in mprojector generated files.

So i have a look a the httpheader and see that for the radio who use
shoutcast send nothing after HTTP/1.x 200 OK and other radio send
something like :
HTTP/1.x 200 OK
Content-Type: audio/mpeg
icy-br: 128
icy-genre: rock
icy-name: ouifm - la radio rock - relais 128 kbps
icy-notice1: BRThis stream requires a
href=http://www.winamp.com/;http://www.winamp.com/
Winamp/aBR
icy-notice2: SHOUTcast Distributed Network Audio Server/win32 v1.9.2BR
icy-pub: 0
icy-url: http://www.ouirock.com
Server: Icecast 2.2.0

So what can be the differences in a Flash swf file or an flash exe file AND
a file generated by mprojector or online swf ?

Re: [Flashcoders] Shape tweens through AS?

2006-03-06 Thread elibol
Why doesn't flash have this feature? That sounds like an excellent way to
control vectors...

I will go ahead and argue that the MovieClip has too much functionality, the
API is too big now. There should be a Vector class which with the MovieClip
class composes vector graphic interactivity, like the MovieClip/bitmapData
class composition. This way, the MovieClip class would handle the complex of
time, and the Vector class the complex of space. I would even argue that the
interactivity should be assigned to a seperate class. You could then use the
interactivity class (basically, Mouse/Key class) with the vector class to
compose static, vector based websites, or bitmap based websites using Flash.
If you decide to incorporate MovieClips into your composition, then you
could incorporate animations. This would even give more meaning to
components.

This would seem to complicate things, but given the proper categorization, I
find that it would simplify through complexity.

Ok enough of my rambling.

 I'm coming to AS from the Director/Lingo side of the street. In Director,
 the Vector Shape data type (which uses the Flash xtra/player code)
 exposes all the data points so they can be manipulated through code. I
 guess I assumed this was a feature in Flash that was carried over. Guess
 not...

[Flashcoders] Frame accurate FLV Dynamic Playlist??

2006-03-06 Thread Mike Connell
Anyone know if the following scenario is possible. 
Say we have two or more Flash FLV or SWF video files on our server. Each was
encoded at the same frame, aspect, and data rate. Let's call these clips
Clip A and Clip B.
Clip A is 1800 frames long or 60 seconds. 
Clip B is 5442 frames long or 3 minutes and 1 second, and 12 frames 
Question...Can we dynamically instruct the clients web browser with the
Flash plug ins to do the following task? 
FRAME accuratly play from frame 134 to frame 1433 of clip A, THEN
IMMEDIATELY cut to and play frame 23-786 in Clip B, THEN IMMEDIATELY cut to
and play frame 154-1799 in Clip A, and so on and so on
This function must appear to happen in the SAME flash window with the cuts
being frame accurate. 
My idea is to put all of the clip editing preview AND the client viewing
tasks in the client browser. This way we do not have to conform the low
resolution material.
There may be a clever way place two playback flash windows in a browser. At
the cut marks you change the priority between the two windows to reveal the
active window. You then cue up the next clip in the back window.
Any thoughts??

Hi Mike,

I might be wrong, but there isn't any way to tell a flv file to play a
certain frame.  The closest you can get would be to play at the
converted (and estimated, which might defeat the whole purpose)
millisecond time of the video.

I'd like to be wrong though... because I may have use for this as well.

RE: [Flashcoders] Shape tweens through AS?

2006-03-06 Thread Andreas Weber
Actually there are many very interesting uses for code-based Shape
Tweening, one of them is to dynamically morph any shape into any other
shape.

As for finding the coordinates of the points that define the shape: one
option is a custom, AS based shape editor / drawing tool. Another one is
to draw in the Flash IDE and then extract the drawing data with ASV
(using some code by Peter Hall) or Robin Dubreuil's brilliant JSFL
script sel2Draw (part of an old SDK).

For translating the points of one drawing to the points of the other one
- we'd need something analogous to the 'shape-hints' in the IDE. 
Another, much easier approach, is to just use shapes that have an equal
number of defining points, thus making it easy to map each point to a
point of the new shape.  

In this sample
http://www.motiondraw.com/md/as_samples/t/cards/2006/FlashCard.php
each shape is defined by 60 points - it is then quite straight-forward
to morph each shape into a randomly chosen other shape.

To make a shape with only 60 defining points look good (smooth) a fast
Catmull-Rom spline was helpful:
http://www.motiondraw.com/md/as_samples/t/CatmullRomSpline/tween.html

Shape tweens through AS - not as straight-forward as it would be if we
could access the drawing data at runtime, but still possible.

I haven't dug very deeply into the tween class. Anyone know if it is  
possible to do shape tweens with it (or has someone written a custom

Well, short answer: you can't do it. It isn't a matter of building
classes 
for it; you can't just modify an existing drawing.


There are two things you can do though, depending on what you actually
want 
to build:

1. build a normal shape tween using the timeline, then use any tween 
class/code to control the playhead on that timeline, so you can go back
and 
forth on the animation, use different times, etc.

2. build objects by code (using the drawing API). Then you'll be fully
able 
to animate each of their points separately. This is overkill though and 
probably not what you want, since you will not only have to draw all
your 
objects by code, but also need to create code to properly translate the 
points of one drawing to the other.

Re: [Flashcoders] Remove right click menu

2006-03-06 Thread Dennis Roche
why not try director? drop the flash movie inside director and then on
export disable the context menu option. there shouldn't be a huge
performance hit. you could also dynamically load the swf file into director
and simply use the dcr as a stub movie.

Re: [Flashcoders] Remove right click menu

2006-03-06 Thread Ramon Miguel M. Tayag
True, it would work a lot like www.goowy.com does (without FireFox,
because for some reason [probably the superimposed HTML], right
clicking the Flash window doesn't work in FireFox).

You'll still see the Settings and About or something like that...

 Doesn't office show a contextual menu on r-click? If so you can
 customize the contextual menu instead of hiding it...

 var newMenu:ContextMenu = new ContextMenu();
 newMenu.hideBuiltInItems();

Re: [Flashcoders] referencing movieclips in an array ..

2006-03-06 Thread Dennis Roche
try this.

var _menuArray:Array = new Array();
var _baseName:String = mc_menu;

for (var i:Number = 0; i  20; i++) {
   _menuArray.push( this.createEmptyMovieClip( _baseName+i,
this.getNextHighestDepth()) );
}

that will do it... but you may want to create an instance of a mc and not an
empty one. look up attachMovie()

also your code wouldn't work... why you ask?
- you have a function that creates your mc's that is not even called!
- if you actually did call you would only get mc as you are constantly
setting the new mc at the same depth

 for(var x:Number = 0; x  20; x++) {
 y = menu + x.toString() + _mc;
 myName = y;
 trace(myName);
