Forums → Programming Forum → AS3: Count number of children movieclips?
- 1 Reply
I have buttons that create specific movie clips such as a library object named "Clip_1":
var b:MovieClip = new Clip_1();
b.name = "Clip_1";
So I can add many Clip_1's, Clip_2's and so on, by their corresponding buttons.
I cannot figure out how to count the number of them that exist on the stage, however and I've looked all over the nets.
I would like the number of Clip_1 instances to display in a text field.
For example: If there are 20 on the stage, the text field should display 20, if one is removed, it should display 19.
I would be grateful for any helpful hints, thank you.
I am away from my home at the moment so I didn't test, but I think this should work.
//name all children on MovieClip as i in your case MC is b
alternatively you can try
//create an array
private var testArray:Array;
//add this after you create movieclip
testArray.push( MC );
for each (var MC in testArray)
trace("movieClip on Screen");
