What I’m Trying to do is name a series of movieclips something else with a for loop… For example something like “thing1” changing names to “thingy” dynamically. Does anyone have any idea how to do this?
well i’m pretty sure i’m doing it in the worst way possible but I want a group of clips; eg: “thing 1” – “thing 10” to be represented as one “thingy”. of course the names are different but that’s it. like what i want is for a bunch of clips to check if one thing is hitting any of them, and if it does, the same result.Does that make sense?
Object should be named either when you put them on stage manually, or named by code in the attachMovie command. You can change the name by using the \_name property, but thats pretty much pointless. The best way to track objects is to store a reference to them in an array as mentioned (or another object type) when you create/attach them. You can then loop through the array as desired to retrieve the reference and perform various operations on them (like collisions).
bq. Do you have any specific tutorial you could point me to?
