Treating group of Objects as one Object

Post by Surbhit29 » Mon Aug 27, 2012 2:18 pm

Hello everyone,
I have an object "Oval" which is opaque and in that Oval i have different other objects such as line, rectangle, polygon etc. Now I want is to rotate that Oval such that when it rotates all the objects that are inside that Oval change their position according to the angle of the rotation.
Its like treating all these objects as one object.
Or treating it like an image.
Can this be achieved?

Do you want to change the position only? Or do you also want to rotate the objects? If the former, this can be done, the latter is a lot more difficult.

All the best,

Hi Malte,
Thnx for the reply. I just want to change the position of the objects according to the rotation.

This one is still rough, but should help to get you started. It rotates a group of graphics around an arbitrary point.

Cheers,

Thnx for the code Malte.
But when I try to open the code it is showing the error
"Unable to open stack. Stack is corrupted. Check for backup files"

Hi Surbhit -

You do realise the file is Not a livecode file, but a Zip file containing a livecode file. You need to unzip it first. Internet 101!!

I know that already.
And after unzipping it only I have tried to open it in livecode

Waht versions of LiveCode are you using?

There was a change in fileformat in LiveCode 5.x , so 4.x cannot open these new stacks!
Maybe this is the problem?

It is indeed a 5.x stack. I can re upload a legacy version if necessary.

All the best,

Malte
