Newbie question here!
I have created a Flash movie with the following attributes:
1 dynamic TextField object.
1 dashed line created with the Line Tool
Both objects were created in Layer 1.
The movie is loaded in a web browser. At runtime, I load a background image in the movie based on a querystring parameter.
At first, the background image would always load on top of the TextField and dashed line. I wanted the background image to be in the…ahem…background, so I did some research and discovered the swapDepths method. I was able to use this method with the TextField object by using a well-known hack mentioned frequently in these forums(TextField.prototype.swapDepths = MovieClip.prototype.swapDepths).
This worked smashingly for the TextField. The background loads BEHIND the TextField. Great.
Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how to do something similar for the dashed line that I created with the Line tool.
What’s the secret? How do you “get at” the line? Any help would be appreciated!
