In the main stage, create a new movie clip (Ctrl+F8) and call it 'scale'. Leave it blank. In the first frame, add the following actions:
Set Variable: "x" = GetProperty ("../drag", _x) If (x > 200) Set Variable: "midX" = x - 200 If (midX < 0 ) Set Variable: "midX" = - midX End If Set Property ("../nav", X Scale) = midX Set Property ("../nav", Y Scale) = midX If (GetProperty ("../nav", _xscale) < 30) Set Property ("../nav", X Scale) = "30" Set Property ("../nav", Y Scale) = "30" End If If (GetProperty ("../nav", _xscale) > 100) Set Property ("../nav", X Scale) = "100" Set Property ("../nav", Y Scale) = "100" End If End If
Line 1 determines the position of the mouse. The second line checks to see if the mouse is in the closer half of the movie to the menu (the movie width is 400). If this is true, lines 3 - 16 are carried out.
Line three reduces x so that the change in the menu's size is not too drastic. The fourth line checks to see if the new variable is a negative number and if it is then it changes it to positive in line 5.
The next 2 lines change the width and length of the menu.
The rest of the lines check to see if the menu's width and height are less than 30 or more than 100. Play around with these two numbers until you find numbers that work with your menu.
In the second frame add:
Go to and Play (_currentframe-1)
This will go back to the first frame so that it will loop.
