No scale on a dot


So here’s the deal: I’m making a dot density map in Flash. Users can zoom in and out on the map, so I have the map scaling. BUT, I don’t want the dots to scale. That is, I want them to stay in their correct relative position, but maintain the exact same size (say, 2 pixels across). I could of course, loop through every single dot, and rescale each dot based on the inverse of the zoom level, but this may introduce some unacceptable performance issues.

Any other ideas?

I’ve tried the scale9grid property, using a larger transparent square in the background of the dot. Doing so keeps the dot from scaling but unfortunately does not keep the dot itself in the correct relative position (know what I mean?).

I appreciate any help. Thanks,
