View Full Version : changing symbol arrangement in actionscript

01 January 2004, 12:31 PM
hey everyone, Is there a way to change the arrangement (ie send to back, bring forward, that kind of stuff) using the action script so it can change during the movie? browsing the actionscript dictionary there doesnt seem to be a command, but my eyes may be lazy. Does anyone know how to do it?

Thanks for any help!

You mean like moving things up and down a layer? take a look in the actionscript dictionary for '_level' and 'MovieClip.swapDepths'.

actually, i mean changing the arrangement. See Modify>Arrange>Send to Back, etc.

I was wondering if i could access these controls via Actionscript?
