View Full Version : way to control layers of generated code? Z-index?

11-20-2009, 01:05 AM
I have a nice snow generating script I downloaded in as3, I am a little new to as3 so I have a question - I have an mc object on the page with the name of "book" there is also an mc object called snow on the page - problem is I can't get the book to be over top of the snow - the snow plays over top of the book. I am sure I need to position it with code but now sure how to go about it. Any suggestions?

Try: addChild(book); This puts it to the top of the display list.

I tried that but the snow is still behind that book object. I am trying to research how to set the depth but not being successful.

I meant to say the snow is still in front of the book - I am trying to figure out how to control it's depth to bring it to the top.

I thought you wanted the book on top of the snow. If you want it under then try: addChildAt(book,0); This'll put it at the bottom of the display list. The second parameter is the display list depth. Play with it and see what you get.

ahhh this worked: parent.addChild(book);

You got me on the right track - thanks!
