Hello,
Currently I am using Focusrect as a "bounding box" for my objects that are on stage.

I would like to create a custom "bounding box" for my objects,
but I can't find any information on the creation of a custom box.

Please,
Where can I find an example of this?
Thanks.

Hi,

What do you mean by "custom box"?  The bounding box is set by the extents of the object so you can't change that.    If you want to associate a custom rectangle to a movie clip, you can use a Rect which is what a bounding box is.

You could probably add it as a dynamic property to a movieclip.

i agree i don't think you can change it.
if you really really are anti the rectangle you'd have to specify actual x and y bounds and that would be a nightmare.
