How to I change this code to make the gradient go from left/right to up/down?
var matrix:Matrix = new Matrix(); var stage_bg:MovieClip = new MovieClip(); var type:String = GradientType.LINEAR; var spread:String = SpreadMethod.PAD; var interpolation:String = InterpolationMethod.RGB; var colours:Array = [0x000000,0x000000]; var alphas:Array = [.7,1.0]; var ratios:Array = [0,50]; matrix.createGradientBox (50,200); stage_bg.graphics.beginGradientFill (type,colours,alphas,ratios,matrix,spread,interpolation); stage_bg.graphics.drawRect (0.0, 0.0,50,200); stage_bg.graphics.endFill (); addChild (stage_bg);
Thanks in advance.
just rotate stage_bg by 90 degrees
I was wondering if there was a more professional method..
you can add a third property in the matrix which is rotation by radians so u could have:
you need the extra bit to convert to degrees
