Hi there,

I am currently trying to create a function that zooms into a movie clip when you click on it. The movie clip is entitled 'container'. I am having a real headache trying to come up with the code to do this, although I do have an idea of how to do it. I'm offering all the points that I have to solve this one, or at least put me on track. Any help is much appreciated.

These are three different codes to try. Assign them (one at a time) to the movieclip, then click on it:

//=============== FIRST CODE ======================
onClipEvent(mouseDown){
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse)){
            this._xscale = this._yscale = 300;
      }
}
onClipEvent(mouseUp){
      this._xscale = this._yscale = 100;
}


//=============== SECOND CODE =====================
onClipEvent(load){
      this.frame = 5;
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(mouseDown){
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse)){
            this.endscale = 300;
      }
}
onClipEvent(mouseUp){
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
      this._xscale += (this.endscale - this._xscale) / 3;
      this._yscale = this._xscale;
}


//=============== THIRD CODE ======================
onClipEvent(load){
      this.acc = 1.8;
      this.ine = 1.5;
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(mouseDown){
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse)){
            this.endscale = 300;
      }
}
onClipEvent(mouseUp){
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
      this.dx = (this.dx + (this.endscale - this._xscale) / this.acc) / this.ine;
      this._xscale += this.dx;
      this._yscale = this._xscale;
}
