    acessing loaded swf movieclip sctructure on as3

    Lujunq
      Hi, I'm using external swf files to add skins to an application. Currenlty,I'm loading isolated elements successfully by the use of the Loader class. However, now I want to load a more complex skin structure that will have some movieclips already placed on the loaded swf stage. The question is: when I load an swf that athe edit time, I placed some elements on stage and gave them instance names, how can I access this external swf movieclip structure? It's something like this:

      1. First, I create the external file by placing some elements on its stage, naming these elements instances, like "console_bar" and "console_button".
      2. Then, I load this swf using the Loader class (into a loader called "playerConsole", for example) and, whe it finishes loading I try to access the elements placed on stage:

      this.addChild(playerConsole);
      playerConsole.console_bar.x = 0; // won't work - how can I access this instance?
