Re size handle

Is there any way to apply a resize handle on a movie clip? I have a nav system where multiple windows open and I would like the user to have an option to resize the differnt MC’s. Any Ideas?

Put a button inside your mc and then play with the _height and _width of the movie, making it relative to the distance between the registration point and the button.

Mmm… Doesn’t sound so clear…

pom :asian:

I have never done it myself so I don’t know how. I have ideas of how, but they are untested.

If you want you can use a component. There is one that sounds exactly like what you want on

Here is a direct link to it…

Here is another one that sounds like what you want also…

and another (haha)…

Ouh… Neato!

Thanks you guys. You know the kirupa forums has to have been the best web tool I have found. I post a thread and within a half an hour great people like you guys have all the information I need. When I finish my personal site all you guys will have big thank you’s on the main page. Great work and thanks again :slight_smile:

Our pleasure:) Well I can’t speak for anyone else, but you know what I mean.

Quick question. Will the componets work in Flash 5 also?

Nope. And doing it yourself is a good exercise anyway, right? :stuck_out_tongue:


I find it better to learn, and if you find it to be a pain after you build it, then use a component. It is always good to know what is going on in your movie, whether you use a component or a widget (components in Flash 5 I believe).

Sorry, for some reason I thought you were using MX. Pretty idiotic of me considering this is in the FLASH 5 FORUM! I feel pretty stupid right now…haha…I will get over it.


No problem I would rather do it my self anyway. Will I be able to open the componet with 5 or will I have to find a widget? I would at least like to view it so I can see how he achived it and then build my own in 5.

No need to open the component. The code is very confusing anyway… And a flash 5 component would be a smart clip, I think.

Anyway, here’s how I would do it: registration point at the top left of the clip, and a draggable clip containing a button at the bottom right. That way, you can have access to everything you need: height and width of the clip…

Ya my windows are already contained in a dragable MC. How do you set up a registration point?
