Dynimically loaded clips - geting the property - HOW ?

Dynimically loaded clips - geting the property - HOW ?

Dynimically loaded clips - geting the property - HOW ?

(OP)
I am loading a movie clip (a jpg in this case) into _level20 but I need the _width and _height values.

I am trying the following 2 methods:

in this case I am getting an "undifined" value:


var myMCL:Object = new MovieClipLoader();

for (b=1; b<21; b++) {
   this.button.onRelease = function() {
      myMCL.loadMovie("gallery/photo10.jpg", 20);
      picWidth = myMCL._width;
      picHeight = myMCL._height;
      trace(picWidth);
      trace(picHeight);
   };
}


or (in this case I am getting the value of the stage)


var myMCL:Object = new MovieClipLoader();

for (b=1; b<21; b++) {
    this.button.onRelease = function() {
    myMCL.loadMovie("gallery/photo10", 20);
    getProperty = myMCL._width;
    getProperty = myMCL._height;
    trace(_width);
    trace(_height);
    };
}


What am I missing ?

Thanks.
