Re: [Flashcoders] Insert new symbol

2008-02-05 Thread Sidney de Koning
if you load your image in with a MovieClipLoader (prolly the best way to 
go), you can position the image, only with the onLoadInit handler.
Only then will you know the dimensions of the loaded in image. the you 
can shift it x of image = width of image * 0.5


something like this (AS2 example):

var containerClip:MovieClip = this.attachMovieClip(emptyClipFromLib, 
emptyClipFromLib this.getNextHighestDepth());

var mclListener:Object = new Object();
var imageMcl:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
imageMcl.addListener(mclListener);
imageMcl.loadClip(images/image1.jpg, containerClip);

trace(the clip width:  + containerClip._width);

mclListener.onLoadInit = function(targetClip:MovieClip) {
   trace(the clip width:  + targetClip._width);
};

Hope this helps,

Sid

Do you mean an empty MovieClip? It's empty - why do you need to worry

Just move the image so 0,0 is in the middle of it and animate from there.
