attachMovie() deletes the old

Msg#: 4071666 posted 1:58 am on Feb 1, 2010 (gmt 0)

When I attempt to use attachMovie(), the last thing that I attached disappears. Here is my code.

setProperty ("_root.platform.banana"+now, _x, _root.platform.character._x);
setProperty ("_root.platform.banana"+now, _y, _root.platform.character._y);

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I think it might be your depth assignment parameter. From the help files:

This example creates a new movie clip with a depth of 10 within the z-order space of container_mc.

The following code attaches two new movie clips to container_mc. The first clip, named clip1_mc, is rendered behind clip2_mc because it was assigned a lower depth value.

container_mc.attachMovie("symbolID", "clip1_mc", 10);
container_mc.attachMovie("symbolID", "clip2_mc", 15);

Depth values for movie clips can range from -16384 to 1048575. If you create or attach a new movie clip on a depth that already has a movie clip, the new or attached clip overwrites the existing content. To avoid this problem, use the MovieClip.getNextHighestDepth() method; however, do not use this method with components that use a different depth-management system. Instead, use DepthManager class with component instances. For more information, see ActionScript 2.0 Components Language Reference.

So, instead, try
