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.

Thread: Load external image to fill movieclip bg

    Load external image to fill movieclip bg

    Hi guys,
    I need to fill some movieclip with an external image in AS3. I know how to use an image contained in the FLA's library as background filling, but I don't know how to do this with an external loaded image.

    Thank you for your help!

    Save the attached file to a folder. Open a new fla file, save it in the same folder of AS file and press F9 to open the code editor. Type this:

    import Image;
    // suppose that mc is the instance of the MovieClip you want to fill
    var img:Image = new Image ("imagename.jpg", mc.width, mc.height);
    It should work. Hope it helps.

    Thank u a lot giobongio!
    The only problem is that the bitmap is "fitted" to the size of movieclip, instead I need that it has been repeated "n" times to fill the mc...is it possible to use the BitmapFill in any way?

    Thank you another time...

    Maybe getTimer() or TweenMax is the answer to your problem . . .
