    Unhappy Wheel of fortune spinner - need help, please!

    Recently I've found Spinner_v3.fla created by the member Nig 13 and I've changed it to the purpose of the new math game I'm creating... Since I've done the rotation within onEnterFrame function - the spinner itself is the event handler - I have no idea how to detect the chosen number: meaning on which number is the spinner stopped after each rotation - in other words: which part of the spinner is under the pointer...

    I thought to create a separate mc for each slice of the spinner (inside spinner) and somehow to "read" above which slice of the spinner (number) is the pointer after each rotation ...??? But I don't have the slightest idea how to achieve that...

    I really really hope that someone will be able to help me and thank you very much in advance!

    P.S. I previously posted this question in the "Newbies & General flash questions" category by accident ... Sorry for the inconvenience!

    _root.spinner.onEnterFrame = function() {
                    if (running == true) {
                            this._rotation -= speed;
                            if (speed <= 10) {
                                    if (speed <= 0) {
                                            speed = 0;
                                            blur_speed = 0;
                                            running = false;
                                            this.enabled = true;
                                            delete this.onEnterFrame;
                                            var num = this._rotation;
                                            num = (num > 0) ? 360 - num : Math.abs(num);
                                            num = Math.round((num * 10) / 360);
                                            num = (num < 10) ? num : 0;
                                    } else {
                                            speed -= 0.1;
                                            blur_speed -= 0.04;
                            } else {
                                    speed -= 0.5;
                                    blur_speed -= 0.2;
                            var myBlurFilter = new BlurFilter(blur_speed, blur_speed, 3);
                            this.filters = [myBlurFilter];

    To dawsonk:
    Thank you million times!!!!!!! I did it rather primitive - I've checked manually which rotation interval will result with a certain number... Although I understand mathematical aspect of your solution, but I'm not that skillful with AS nor that much familiar with ?: operator, so I would appreciate if you could spend a few more minutes and explain a little bit the procedure behind the part of your code regarding reading the "num" variable... Thanks in advance!

    Best regards
