Brief Description: 

Remove the object at the specified level. This tag should be used in movies version 3 and over since it compressed better than the standard RemoveObject tag. Note that a PlaceObject2 can also be used for this task.

Tag Structure: 
struct swf_removeobject {
	swf_tag			f_tag;		/* 5 or 28 */
	if(f_tag == RemoveObject) {
		unsigned short		f_object_id_ref;
	unsigned short		f_depth;

Remove the specified object from the display list. If the same object was placed multiple times at the specified depth1 only the last copy is removed. When only a depth is specified, the last object placed at that depth is removed from the list. Note that since version 3 it is possible to use the PlaceObject2 in order to replace an object at a given depth without having to remove it first.

  • 1. It is illegal, yet possible, to place more than one object at the same depth.
