Change Size of Movable Web Graphics in Flash

Dear All,

This is the file I am working with http://www.andymellor.com/flash/Celebrity%20Photofit%20(Male).swf

Basically what I am trying to do is set up a flash document which allows face parts to be dragged and dropped onto a face base. This is for an English lesson at a comprehensive school in Manchester, UK.

Things seem to be going reasonably ok with the creation of this file and I have managed to sort out creating the movable face parts.

What I would like to know is:

Is it possible to have the face parts (eg The Eyes) quite small, and then when they are clicked on and dragged they resize to the correct size. The reason for this is that the flash document is becoming very crowded and I would like to add more face parts.

I apologise if I am not being very clear but I hope I am making some sense.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes,
you can do it.

just keep all MovieClip/objects on stage at 40%-50% size (or whatever size you want)

just add following line on code on "onPress" of each button

<movieClip instancename>._xscale = <movieClip instancename>._yscale = 100;

Hi Aneesh,

This is the actionscript I am using for each of my movie clips

on(press){
startDrag(this,false)
}
on(release){
stopDrag();
}

Could you give me a little more help on where I need to insert the script that you gave me.

Cheers
