Default exporting to mxp

I finally have the mxi code pegged, and can create and install an extension of my component... but some of the items that are attached dynamically are not included when dragging the component from the components window to the stage. Is this because every needed mc and other such, has to be included on the stage or is it possible to assign some kind of variable to make everything in the component folder copy across?

When you create the FLA that becomes your MXP component you should drag a copy of the component and all required clips into an empty FLA and save this as your component. Then package it...

thanks jesse.

yeah ok. So does that mean that any of the dynamically attached mc's don't have to go into the component just into the fla's stage?

Yeah they go in the FLA. They don't have to go on the stage, just in the library. I'd suggest keeping them in a directory too with kinda unique names because something like "blank" is going to conflict with the MCs a user may have in their movie before importing your component.

I am not so sure about this, I just went through it with my datagrid component, and I had to drag them to the stage and stick them in guide layers in order for them to get packaged up with my component. When I just had them in the library and I packaged and installed them into a component and then dragged thatonto a new movie the library items never made it. I always had to make sure they were on the stage of my component fla. I have never really figured it out, but as far as I know this is how it had to be done.

I guess it depends on the application of the elements. I assumed we're talking about container MCs which are attached at runtime or somethign similar. If you're talking about elements which actually make up the interface of your component which aren't attached and placed dynamically then it stands to reason you'd have to do them manually.

I am talking about elements that are attached at runtime using attachMovie(), its almost as if the elements do not get put into the library of the movie where the component was used unless the elements wer eon the stage of the component fla. If you follow me.
