[FMX] Getting a duplicated movieclip's name on event

Hi all,

Normally I don’t bother posting a question which seems as trivial as mine, because usually Google or some forums / tutorial sites are my best friend.

However, I cannot find a solution *anywhere *for this issue. Searching the forum yields: “The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: name

Anyway, the thing is this.

I duplicate a movieclip several times, which is a button, and name the instances c0, c1, c2, etc. I want to use substring to extract the number behind this name when someone clicks on one of these buttons. I have the following function in the button:

on(rollOver) {
			x = substring(this._name,1);
			ripples._x = coords[x].split(",")[0];
			ripples._y = coords[x].split(",")[1];

As you may guess, I need the number in the variable x. However, the pointer “this” apparently points to the level this button is on (_level0), and not the button itself. So “this._name” gives me nothing.

My question to you all is, how do I obtain the buttons instance name the user has clicked on? Or for that matter, any other property. How do I address the button itself, from the on(XXXX) function?

The code to spawn the buttons is (in a loop):


Obtaining the coordinates instead of it’s name would suffice as well.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
