how to define an instance of a movie clip globaly as oppose to a relative target path
Posted on 2006-04-09
Hi, I am working on a rather large flash project and I don't want to define target paths for my nested movie clip instances. It is basically very messy trying to refer to my movie clips using paths like _root.MC1 or _parent._parent.MC2 ... ,If in the future I have to move my movie clips around, it will be difficult a task to update the corresponding traget paths. Is there a way to define global paths for my movie clips so I can refer to them from anywhere in my flash project and not worry about updating my target paths later? For simplicity you can assume that all my movie clips are created in the same .fla file (no external movie clips). Also I am using Flash 8 and action script 2.0.
