Flex swf loaded in Flash swf

I have a Flex swf loaded into a Flash swf.

I have made the Flex swf transparent, so that the buttons in the Flash swf are visible.


But im unable to interact with the Flash swf buttons.


  • My Flex swf is working happyily
  • The Flex swf overlays the Flash swf.
  • If i change the scrollRect of the Flex swf so the Flex swf is not overlaying the Flash swf i can successfully interact with the Flash swf buttons.


Any ideas?

    Flex has a “mouseShield” behind everything so you can’t overlay it.  Mixing interactions between Flex and Flash can cause other issues with focus.  Why do you need to use a Flash wrapper?

    Well, you can try shrinking the mouseshield, but I don’t know what will happen when you do that.  It should be systemManager.getChildAt(0).
