    Spacing objects out evenly within a fixed space

    I cannot figure out how to do this for the life of me.

    Is there some sort of formula to figure out the exact spacing?

    Yes.
    Let's assume you have a set of n items which widths sum to W you want to put in a D wide area.
    Then the spacing between items shoud be (D - W) / (n + 1)

    a=0
    b=4

    between 'a' and 'b' there are three numbers, and all the numbers are spaced 1 apart.

    So a simple formula would be

    spacing=x+1

    x is whatever we place there.

    if x is 2, the next number is 3, because the spacing is 1.

    If you wrote an ActionScript function it may look like this:


    function space(obj:Object):void
    {
    var num:Number = 0;
    while (num < 4) {
    obj.x+=1
    }

    This says that as long as 'num' is less than 4, the object(whichever you choose) will have 1 added to it's x value (or whatever value you choose).

    However, this may or may not be what you will have in the end, in-fact I just want you to see how you might achieve whatever it is you want:
