Tiling Background in Actionscript 3.0

He is a quick method fot tiling a background in AS3.0
You ned to have an image in the Library exported to Actionscrip and called image

// set stage proprieties
stage.align = StageAlign.TOP_LEFT;
stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_SCALE;

// creating the bitmapdata instance from library
var _tile:BitmapData = new image(0,0);
// container to draw tiles
var _container:Sprite = new Sprite();

// tile background function
function Tile($e:Event):void
_container.graphics.drawRect(0, 0, stage.stageWidth, stage.stageHeight);

//add container to stage
stage.addEventListener(Event.RESIZE, Tile);
stage.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, Tile)

  2. hey, wanted to find code to do exactly this – but somehow this is not working, i get an error – “1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: bg_tile.

  3. Make sure you set your image in the Library as ready for actionscript. Go to the image in the library , right click on it, select proprieties, check the Export for Actionscript box.
