Hi Folks,

I have a button the library and I want to attach it dynamically to the position x:100, y:100. How do we do it in AS3

Any sample is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hi,

I'n not exactly sure what you mean by "attach dynamically to the position".  Do you mean move the button to that position?

If so, it's simply:

mybutton.x = 100;
mybutton.y = 100;

where mybutton is your instance name.  If you mean something else, please clarify.

Okay, I understand.  Your terminology is a little confusing, though.

In AS3, you use the addChild() method to attach movie clips, buttons, etc.

attachChild(CA);

will add the button CA as a child of the main timeline, but you could add it as a child of whatever you want.  

Then, after adding it, use the above code to position it:

CA.x = 100;
CA.y = 100;

This assumes CA already exists as an instance.  If CA is a class in the library, then you have to instantiate the class, and do what I showed above:

mybutton = new CA();
addChild(mybutton);
mybutton.x = 100;
mybutton.y = 100;

Note that you must export CA to actionscript to be able to use it in AS.  In the library, click on CA, then click on the library menu and choose linkage,  in the popup choose 'export to actionscript'.
