Is there a possibility to mask a sprite?

Here, take a look at the health bar in my project.
Capx

I'll see if I can whip up a custom capx for you tomorrow, alright?
Zelda Gamekit (my project)

Example capxs I have made:
Zelda-Style Inventory
Zelda Hearts System

The unwritten "How do I" capx etiquette! Nearly always provide a capx of the problem you have, and try to isolate the problem and/or no capx above 10 MB. :)

Thank you. But this is just a bar. I made a health bar by my own.TastyBytes2011-12-21 10:56:29

@TastyBytes: one solution I would use (not saying that's the best) :
Have the border/heart shape as a sprite on the top layer, and have the "fill" of the heart as tiled background which height you'd set according to your health value.

You might also want to check the "effects" property of the sprite/tiledbackground object, and see if tweaking with those values help you out.

Please attach a capx to any help request or bug report !

Bytes, you don't understand what I'm trying to bring across. This health bar I cooked up for my game, with a little tinkering; the same mechanics can be used for a Zelda style health display.

In place of the frame, you just have the single hearts frame in place on the top gui layer. You place the red graphics (you'll probably have to have more than one of the red graphics, from full to completely empty) in the same x/y coordiates on a topmost layer (for gui, with 0,0 parallex) and with a little adjustment; you can get the health gui to change display without filling over or running into problems.LaDestitute2011-12-21 12:51:44

Ok, I see. But this is not exacly what i am searching for. Cause I have to do more grafics and the change of the bar isnt really dynamic.

you'll probably have to have more than one of the red graphics, from full to completely empty

@Pode: I am sorry, if I am to confusing.
I hope with this picture it beomes more clearly.



I have also tried the method with the tiled background, but you cant do the Hotspot to the bottom of it. Here is the Capx:
