View Full Version : Jesse's Code

I used the tutorial that Jesse about duplicateMovieClip(); and when I downloaded the Flash MX 2004 trial, it wouldn't work with untill I had to make a few modifications. Here's the code
count = 1;
while (count<30) {
MovieClip.duplicateMovieClip("boxx"+count, count);
["boxx"+count]_x = random(550);
["boxx"+count]_y = random(150);
count += 1;
} I had to take out these two lines
["boxx"+count]_y = random(150);
["boxx"+count]_y = random(150);
for it to work. I don't understand why :confused: but there is a lot to learn in MX 2004. The Properties Tool disappeared and I keep pressing CTRL+F3 but it wont come back even when I press it from the drop down menu. I just need to know what other things have changed and how can I apply them? Anyone else have this kind of problem?

you can change the shortcuts, if you like to! the tools bar for example is Ctrl+F2
no Idea about the code, but indeed, there's much to learn :)
Especially about classes!

Do you know how I can change between normal mode and expert mode in MX 2004 ActionScript panel? Like I said before, the Properties Tool disappeared and I can't get it back. I restarted the computer but it's still the same. It's very annoying :mad:

I think the as window only has "expert" mode. The rest is done with behaviors as far as I can see. It's a bit different.

urgg, the pains of change.
