Positioning Two Menus On Stage in MX... Problem with X, Y Coordinates? ZIP File

Posted on 2005-05-06
Last Modified: 2010-04-03

I have a menu in place in MX. However, I'd like to duplicate the same menu and have it load in a different spot. New mc, different x, y coordinates etc. So, the original menu will stay where it is, and the new one will load simultaneously into another mc.

At the risk of making this sound really awkward and difficult, I'll stop now.

If anyone can help me. I would greatly appreciate it. I've included a link to an old post of mine so you can better understand what I'm talking about:

Here's the zip file from my post:

(Says flashmx7, I'm still using an older version, though)

Negatyve resolved my question back then. I'd just like to know how to have two menus load in different places now.

Thank you for any help.

    Use this script:

    _root.scroller.duplicateMovieClip("another", 1);
    _root.another._x = 200;
    _root.another._y = 10;
    _global.openWinCentre = function(url, winName, w, h, toolbar, location, directories, status, menubar, scrollbars, resizable) {

    Thank you very much. I was on the right track but have never used duplicateMovieClip before.

    It works great.
