    here goes...

    i don't remember how the script goes exactly, can't find the fla.....

    i create a "node" movie clip, a simple circle, and placed 4 instances, numbering each

    with a code in an "actions" clip, using the fill and lineTo functions, and referencing the nodes as points, lines connected a point creating a quadrilateral with the fill i specified

    everyone understand so far?

    what i want to know= is it possible to create the points in action script, giving the x and y, so that the lineto function could use that, or is it necessary to use advanced(for me) functions to do this

    if so, can some one tell me how to do it, and kinda break it down...? thanx for ure help and patience
