Urgent!!! Center the dynamic image in flash (500 points now)

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to load images from a flash, but cant center the image, here's my actionscript:

loadMovie(image.jpg, _root.photo);
l = _root.photo.getBytesLoaded();
t = _root.photo.getBytesTotal();
while (l < t)
{
     //do nothing
}
_root.photo._x = (550-_root.photo._width)/2;
_root.photo._y = (400-_root.photo._height)/2;

the images show up, but still on the top left corner.

Anyone knows how to center the image?

Thanks
Harry

Hi,

this code will work fine for you
-----------
w = _root.photo._width;
loadMovie("image.jpg", _root.photo);
l = _root.photo.getBytesLoaded();
t = _root.photo.getBytesTotal();
_root.onEnterFrame = function()
{
      if (l == t && _root.photo._width>w)
      {
            _root.photo._x = (Stage.width-_root.photo._width)/2;
            _root.photo._y = (Stage.height-_root.photo._height)/2;
            delete _root.onEnterFrame;
      }
};
-----------

Try changing it to:

w = 0;
image = loadMovie("image.jpg", _root.photo);
l = image.getBytesLoaded();
t = image.getBytesTotal();
_root.onEnterFrame = function()
{
     if (l >= t && _root.photo._width>w)
     {
          image._x = (Stage.width - image._width)/2;
          image._y = (Stage.height - image._height)/2;
          delete _root.onEnterFrame;
     }
};
