Hi, experts

I use a simple code to load a external image and I want to put it at center of stage, how do I do that ?

:: CODE ::

      this.contentClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip("myTarget", 500);
      this.picture = "netblue/size_sample.jpg";
      this.contentClip.loadMovie(picture);

Thanks,

Brian

Hi,

following code will do it for you. just replace your complete code with following:
-------------------------------------
this.contentClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip("myTarget", 500);
this.picture = "netblue/size_sample.jpg";
//
tlistener = new Object();
tlistener.onLoadInit = function(target_mc)
{
      target_mc._x = (Stage.width-target_mc._width)/2;
      target_mc._y = (Stage.height-target_mc._height)/2;
      //
};
image_mcl = new MovieClipLoader();
image_mcl.addListener(tlistener);
image_mcl.loadClip(this.picture, contentClip);
--------------------

and if you want to use only loadMovie and still want image in center, then use following code:

--------------
this.contentClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip("myTarget", 500);
this.picture = "netblue/size_sample.jpg";
this.contentClip.loadMovie(picture);
//
this.onEnterFrame = function()
{
      if (this.contentClip.getBytesLoaded() == this.contentClip.getBytesTotal() && this.contentClip._width>0)
      {
            delete this.onEnterFrame;
            this.contentClip._x = (Stage.width-this.contentClip._width)/2;
            this.contentClip._y = (Stage.height-this.contentClip._height)/2;
      }
};
-----------
