    Adding a Child to a Movie Clip and Resizing

    Hey all,

    I am transitioning into AS3 and I'm working a block that I can't quite figure out. I need to add a child (external image) to a movie clip and resize it. This is what I have thus far and it loads the image just fine:

    var imageLoader:Loader = new Loader();
    imageLoader.load(new URLRequest(myOBJ.image));
    productImage_mc.addChild(imageLoader);

    Problem is that I can't seem to resize the added image without it disappearing or just not showing up. Any suggestions on how to resize the added child to 164 x 164 would be much appreciated.

    You need to add an eventlistener
    imageLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener etc
    Then within the listener function you can resize the image. When you want to resize it, it is not yet loaded.
