createEmptyClip and Properties Problem

Hi and thanks for reading;

What I want to do is duplicate/attach my "NEO" MC from the lib onto the stage as indicated below. I have the MC likned and I can get only 1 copy to appear on the stage anbd all my traces return indefined. I have tried a couple different variations to no avail including attacing only one mc to each empty clip that has been created and no difference. the closest I got was getitng 0 for x and y props.

I want to have several clips that I populate with the NEO mc in different locations.

What gives lol and TIA

initx = 100;
inity = 150;
dx = 30;
dy = 36;

createEmptyMovieClip("c1",this.getNextHighestDepth());
createEmptyMovieClip("c2",this.getNextHighestDepth());
createEmptyMovieClip("c3",this.getNextHighestDepth());
createEmptyMovieClip("c4",this.getNextHighestDepth());
createEmptyMovieClip("c5",this.getNextHighestDepth());

for (i=1; i<=3; i++) {
newName = "r" + i;
c1.attachMovie("neo", newName, this.getNextHighestDepth());
trace("newname = " + newName);
eval("c1." + newName)._x = 50 ;
eval("c1." + newName)._y = inity  + (dy*i);
}
trace (c1.r1._y);
trace (c1.r2._y);
trace (c1.r3._y);

try that.

what is are the function of the 4 other empty mc? or will you be using them for other stuff, as they arent doing anything at the moment. btw it was the this.getNextHighestDepth() in the attachMovie that was causing it to not function as this wasn't c1 as you might expect but _level0

hope this helps

that has solved the issue. Thanks for the fasdt response. I was able to move forward on that project over the weekend as a result.

I have some other thing I plan to put into the other clips that will be very similar to what I have for the first. If you want to see the final project moving forward go to ***Admin Delete***.com.
