    Little help for a newbie

    Hello everybody!

    I need to load 100 instances of the same clip, everyone in a random position.
    This script does not seem to work:

    Code:
    import flash.display.MovieClip;
    var droplet: drop = new drop();
    for (var n: int = 0; n < 100; n++) {
    	droplet.name = "droplet" + n
    	addChild(droplet);
    	droplet.x = Math.random() * stage.stageWidth;
    	droplet.y = Math.random() * stage.stageHeight;
    }
    Could anyone kindly suggest me the right way?
    Thanks!

    ok i managed to make it work with an array:

    droplet[i] = new drop();
    droplet[i].x = Math.random() * stage.stageWidth;
    droplet[i].y = Math.random() * stage.stageHeight;
    addChild(droplet[i]);

    now, i need to removeChild after droplet clip played.
    a removechild within the clip itself seems to dont work.
    Thanks!

    Do you have a class for your MovieClip or simply frame to frame animation?

    In the last frame of your MovieClip place these two lines:

    stop();
    this.parent.removeChild(this);

    This will remove the MovieClip after the animation.

    hey thanks so much. it works indeed, but i got an error in the output window.

    "TypeError: Error #1009: Impossibile accedere a una proprietÓ o a un metodo di un riferimento oggetto null."

    it is in italian, but basically it means "impossible to read a property or a reference method for a null object"

    do you know what it could be?
    thanks a lot!!!!!!!

    this.parent must be the timeline to remove the movieclip. If the animation is inside of another movieclip, it would not work. Also the stop() is very important. You can try to create one more frame, where you put the stop(); and in the frame before place this.parent.removeChild(this); if this.parent is the timeline.
