    The Adobe AS3 Livedocs says the following:

    RETURNINDEXEDARRAY : uint = 8
    [static] Specifies that a sort returns an array that consists of array indices.


    So yes, it returns an array, but it's...

    Without seeing the source, I believe it's because you are passing Array.RETURNINDEXEDARRAY in the params. That returns an array of array indices, not of the original array, so it's doing what it...

    You need to make the function's scope available to each movie clip. Right now each drag item is looking for a colour() function on it's own clip, not on the _root.

    You don't have to do the math, there are plenty of tweening packages out there that do it for you. Zigo/Fuse is probably the easiest to use:

    Make sure that you are either setting the text box to Static text, or are embedding the font if it's Dynamic text. That's usually the culprit on something like this.

    Hope this helps.

    You can't copy and paste. You'll need to save the image as PNG32 and import into Flash.

    Use this:



    //where setY is the random y position of the clip;

    bee._y = Math.max (130, clipY);


    Math.max uses whatever value is higher. So if setY is less than 130, it will be at 130, if...
