How can I set the properties of a loadMovieNum?

Code: [ Select ]
for(var w=0; w<sortedInput.length; w++){
            loadMovieNum("printImages/"+sortedInput[w]+".swf", 3+w);
            
    }
  1. for(var w=0; w<sortedInput.length; w++){
  2.             loadMovieNum("printImages/"+sortedInput[w]+".swf", 3+w);
  3.             
  4.     }


I need to either set the _x and _y off stage or set the _alpha to 0.

TIA,
Tara

well you need to give the movie you loaded an instance name. I'm not sure how that works with the loadMovieNum.

Do you need to load the clip into a level? If not you could simply use the loadMovieClip(InstanceNameToReplace,parms) in which case you could then target the new clip with the same instance name as the one you replaced.

for example:

Code: [ Select ]
instanceName._visible = false;


or _x, _y, _alpha etc

on a side note if your using MX04 the movieClipLoader class would make this job much easier since it supports things like complete, bytes loaded, etc
