    duplicateMovieClip AS2

    Hi, and sorry for being stupid.
    I am trying to get some actions on a duplicated MovieClip
    Now what I got is something like this:
    Actionscript Code:
    // I have some loop wrapped around this so the 'i' changes.
    duplicateMovieClip("target", "new"+i, 100+i);
    // I use 'i' because i need a few of those...

    for(i=0;i<somenumber;i++){
    _root["new"+i].onEnterFrame = function(){
    //actions
    }
    }

    And it won't work. Logically it just makes MCs "new1" "new2" "new3" and so on.And then it checks for those.
    If i put a MC named "new3" on stage, it works. I guess i'm just stupid and doing the duplication wrong or something.
    Any help? Thanks.

    This may be nothing but try changing the var name of i in the second loop to something else, like "j". HTH.

    Oh no.. here it's like this, to illustrate. In the code they have different names.(though it really doesn't matters if they are in different 'for' loops)
    I did some checking using 'trace' to see the names of the duplicates and they sees to be fine...But it doesn't work.
    If i put them manually on the stage and name them something like 'new1' 'new2' and so on then it works..

    When using the duplicate function what code is being used for x and y placement. Chances are it is working, it's just putting them all on top of each other.

    Well, it's not just the X, Y placement,even if i do something like 'trace' under that it won't work.(I mean the second part of my code)
    But i'm using:
    duplicateMovieClip("target", "new"+i, 100+i);
    _root["new"+i]._x = somex;
    _root["new"+i]._y = somey;

    I don't know what can go wrong here...

    This is not the full file (because it's too big)
    so i just made an illustration.
    You duplicate by clicking and I tried rollover here..

    Do this and it will work, in the main timeline the actions should be as follows.
    PHP Code:
    var 1;

    onMouseDown = function () {
        if (
    i<6) {
            
    duplicateMovieClip("rect""new"+i100+i);
            
    this["new"+i]._x this._xmouse;
            
    this["new"+i]._y this._ymouse;
            
    this["new"+i]._name "new" i;
            
    i++;
        }

    Then add this code to the "rect" library object,
    PHP Code:
    this.onRollOver = function() {
        
    trace(this._name);

    Or if you want the code on the main timeline, try something like this, it worked for me.
    PHP Code:
    for(var 010i++) {
        
    duplicateMovieClip("target""mc"+ithis.getNextHighestDepth());
        
    this["mc"+i]._x Math.random() * Stage.width;
        
    this["mc"+i]._y Math.random() * Stage.height;
        
        for(var 
    j=010j++) {
            
    this["mc"+j].onPress = function() {
                
    trace(this._name);
            }
        }

    HTH.

    Oh finally, a solution. I hope i can fit this to work with my code.

    Thanks a lot!
    EDIT: the first idea worked for me and seems comfortable for my code, so i'm going to use that.
    thanks!
