Re: [Flashcoders] Extracting SWF height and width from php

On idea... You could use Stage.width and Stage.height in Flash - send those variables via Javscript/externalInterface and use a javascript function to adjust the height/width of the table. On 12/11/06, [EMAIL PROTECTED] [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: Is it possible to extract the height and width

Keep all the clips that you want to perform swap depths inside a holder MC, that way when you're swapping depths it will only swap depths with elements inside that holder MC, not other elements. On 1/12/07, sam rolfe [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: Ok, so i thought I could use swapDepth in my class
