ActionScripting Basics: Using getProperty


getProperty is a function that will return the value of the specified property of a target movie clip--properties such as the width, height, x position, y position, etc. The value of that property is usually assigned to a variable that is then used in another function, but for this lesson we’re just going to show how to set up a getProperty function.
