Hello, I have in my Fla (cs5) these symbols:
Backgorund1
Background2
Background3

All these extends MovieClips

My goal is to add them dynamically to stage accordign to level variable:
ex:

   var level:int = 1;
   
    var bg:MovieClip =new getClassByName("Background"+level);
   
    stage.addChild(bg);



Any idea on how to do that ?

Regards

hi,

you can do this:




var dynamicClass:String = "background" + String(level);
var classRef:Class = getDefinitionByName(dynamicClass) as Class;
var mc:MovieClip = new classRef();
addChild(mc)

Open in new window
