    Quick Question about MC's and order...

    If you've got 3 movieclips, all of which are in the same place, and when you click a button, one of the MC's plays, then you click another button and another MC plays. How do you make it so the last button you press, the MC comes to the top and is therefore visible above the other?

    AS3 use addChild()

    On the actual button?

    Code:
    on(rollOver){
    	
    _root.portfolio.play();
    
    this.swapDepths(99999);
    
    }
    Would it still be this. or would I change that?

    Thanks

    For AS2 try this...

    Code:
    on(rollOver){
    _root.portfolio.play();
    this.swapDepths(getNextHighestDepth());
    }

    Also, this implies the current object (ie, in that case the button your scripting on) you'd be better using an instance name if you want to target a specific mc, and not use action ON objects.
    Rather, use something like this:

    button.onRollOver = function() { mc.swapDepths(this._parent.getNextHighestDepth()); }

    Still doesn't appear to be working, having tried both of those. Not sure if i've actually used gparis' code correctly though.

    I make a button with the instance name, "button" and my MC should have the instance name mc?

    It's actually in a movieclip IN a movieclip, so the actual level of it is:

    _root.imac.portfolio

    ?

    Hi Object, Listen, i wish to return you something, but only if what you are saying is true, else, forget it, ROLL_OVER the floor, i will check for someone else at the stage, while eating a no.visible cookie.
