View Full Version : FullScreen flash... problem with movieClip position

06-20-2008, 02:10 AM

I'm currently programming a site available to see at:


The problem i have is that when I load in external .swf files which are bigger than the main centered movieClip (centeredContent_mc)... if you resize the browser it will bump the center section to a new position because it's size has changed. You can see this in the "Take a tour" section.

This is the code im using:

Stage.scaleMode = "noScale";
Stage.align = "TL";

var stageListener: Object = new Object();

stageListener.onResize = positionContent;


function positionContent():Void
centeredContent_mc._x = Stage.width/2 - centeredContent_mc._width/2;
centeredContent_mc._y = Stage.height/2 - centeredContent_mc._height/2;

if ( Stage.height/Stage.width > background_mc._height / background_mc._width )
var ratio = background_mc._width/background_mc._height;

if ( Stage.height > 400 )
background_mc._height = Stage.height;
background_mc._width = Stage.height*ratio;
var ratio = background_mc._height/background_mc._width;

if ( Stage.width > 400 )
background_mc._width = Stage.width;
background_mc._height = Stage.width*ratio;


My question is: Is there any way to specify the new movieClip and keep if from changing the size of the mc it's being loaded into?

I would GREATLY appreciate any comments!!!!

I think that it automatically resizes the movieClip to fit the SWF. What you probably will have to do is reset the size after it is loaded using something like right after the loading code (not displayed above):

innerSWF._x = 500;
innerSWF._y = 400;
