I’m not very well versed in AS3, and am wondering if there is something similar to CSS’s Z-Index stack to order which objects get stacked on-top of each-other. I would like to figure out how to order objects (images) into “layers”.
I’m working on my games menu system and I want to display my “studios” logo first, and then launch the menu will display. However, I’m running into a “z-index” bug that I can’t circumvent.
Here’s the code: ( I have to initialize Game Logo after the menu so it sits ontop, but I want it the other way. But doing so, just draws up the menu….)
`public function initalizeGame():void
// Init Logo
// Init Preloader
// Add other Init’s
public function initalize():void
public function initTitleScreen():void
// Don’t worry about this. This just contains a bunch of variables you don’t need to see.
I also edited the games-logo’s background to fade out via the timeline, so that it goes away, but it leaves the “background intact” making the area below unclickable. I could also be lazy and just put this.y = -2000; in the last frame on the actions, but thats not efficient enough. So how can I order layers in AS3?
Children define depth. If DisplayObjects A and B are added to parent P, like so:
A will be at a lower depth (behind) B.
You should consider the use of containers to manage depth sorting. For example, you will have a `hud` and `game` container. All displayobjects that are for the hud are added to the `hud` and all game related displayobjects are added to `game`. Then you add `game` and `hud` to the same parent, but `hud` _after_ `game` so the hud will always exist above the game display objects.
