Loading Movie clips with array from XML

Recommended Posts



I have tried for a long time, but with no success, to transform movie clips loaded fron an array.


My array looks will just run fine when I'm running it like this

var manager_obj = new TransformManager({targetObjects:[links0,links1,links2,links4], forceSelectionToFront:true, eventHandler:onAnyEvent});


When I'm trying to access my array like this Transformmanager will not work

var manager_obj = new TransformManager({targetObjects:linkArray, forceSelectionToFront:true, eventHandler:onAnyEvent});


I' building my array in a loop like this:



When I'm checking my array with trace it look just fine and exactly as it should. But it is'nt working in TransformManager.


Please help

You must pass real references to the object, not just their String names. In other words:


BAD: targetObjects:["links0","links1","links2","links4"]

GOOD: targetObjects:[links0,links1,links2,links4] //(assuming links0, links1, etc. reference valid MovieClips)


XML stuff is always just String data, so you're telling TransformManager that you want to literally transform text/Strings instead of the actual MovieClips themselves.
