Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    ActionScript 3 Inventory System

    Hi all, I am trying to edit the traditional AS2 inventory system to AS3, this is how i have done it so far. The only problem is in AS3 it doesn't seem to allow the use of x/y with strings any more. Any solutions?


    var currentslotnum:Number = 1
    var itemfound:Boolean = false
    mclip.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, itemchecker);
    function itemchecker(Event:Event):void;
    if (mclip.char.hitTestObject(item1) == true) {
    function addToslot (item) {
    if (!itemfound) {
    item.x = ("itemSlot"+currentslotnum).x
    item.y = ("itemSlot"+currentslotnum).y
    itemfound = true;
    currentslotnum += 1;

    Assuming you have dynamically created the inventory slots by putting instances and then give them unique names, you can use getChildByName to access its properties

    e.g getChildByName("itemSlot"+currentslotnum).x

    Has anyone found or made an inventory code that is more dynamic(so that you could move the items around in your inventory and stuff like that) Or seen a tutorial on this?
