Getting parent movies

Recommended Posts

for(var i:uint = 0; i < 10; i++){
     var temp_item:ITEM = new ITEM();
     addChild(temp_item);
     dQueue.append(new SWFLoader("test_clip" + i + ".swf", {name:"file_name" + i, estimatedBytes:30000, container:temp_item.container_mc, autoPlay:true}));
}

Guys, how can I get movieclips on upper level of "container_mc" using onChildComplete event listener?

Hi, assuming you are talking about the onChildComplete of a LoaderMax you can use the event that is passed into the callback function to find the content that was loaded and whatever parents you need. 

 

For example if dQueue has {onChildComplete:onChildCompleteHandler} assigned then you can do:

 

function onChildCompleteHandler(event:LoaderEvent):void
{
trace("\n");
trace("event: \t" + event); 
trace("event.target: \t" + event.target);
trace("event.target.content: \t" + event.target.content);
trace(event.target.content.parent);
trace("\n");


}
 
Using a LoaderMax that loads a series of images, I get the following traces
 
event: [Event type="childComplete" bubbles=false cancelable=false eventPhase=2]
event.target: ImageLoader 'loader4' (images/bird.png)
event.target.content: [object ContentDisplay]
[object MainTimeline]
 
So inside your onChildComplete callback I would start with 
event.target.content.parent

Keep in mind

 

event = the type of event (complete, childComplete, error etc)

event.target = is the loader (ImageLoader, SWFLoader etd)

event.target.content is the ContentDisplay Sprite that holds the loaded content

trace(event.target.content.parent);

Oh, yeah! Thanx!
