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.

    Afrostyle [external asset] can't get container's width/height


    I've got a class, FileLoader, that loads swf. It dispatch an Event.COMPLETE.
    There's a listener on Event.COMPLETE that add the swf to an empty movieclip called page.
    Immediately after adding the swf to page, page dimensions still are == 0. Why?
    If for ex. I then resize the window, I can retrieve them. Quite strange..

    Can you help me please?

    Here's the code:

    //the container
    var page = new MovieClip();
    function completeTest(e:Event){//Event.COMPLETE listener
    	//delete old movie
    	if(page.numChildren > 0){
    		loader.unLoad(); //loader here is an instance of a class of mine called FileLoader. unLoad() calls unload() to the internal Loader instance.
    	var swf = e.target.currentLoadedFile; //currentLoadedFile is a prop of FileLoader
            //Here i cannot immediately retrieve page.width and page.height (they're == 0)
            //if I then for example, resize the window, then I can retrieve them.
