RE: [Flashcoders] as3 -re-dimensioning spirte but not its children

Or you could create a new 'duplicate' sprite (instead of scaling the
original) and re-parent the children to the new sprite using:

newParent.addChild(objectToReparent);

I'd say extend a new class from Sprite, and override the getters and
setters for width and height, and scaleX and scaleY if you need them.

However, if you don't want to do that, make two sprites inside your
sprite. One with things you want to change and one width those you
don't. Then just resize the sprite that you want to.

 Hi list,

 Is it possible to alter the width or height of a sprite dynamically
 without altering the width and height of its children ?

 Even when I add children to a Sprite that had its dimensions altered
 dynamically, these children have their dimensions changed.

 Could I do something like sprite.resetScaleXandY ?

 What do you suggest in this kind of situation?

 Thanks in advance,
 Isaac
