    Control an external SWF

    heart_ways
      Ok say I have a big comeplete Flash website.

      The website is composed of:
      -The main stage
      -Movie Clip that loads external swfs 1 (let's call this "A")
      -Movie Clip that loads external swfs 2 (let's call this "Z")

      So say A is a movie clip that loads a menu (external swf). Can I control Z (like changing frames and so on), by clicking buttons on A (since it's a menu)?

      I hope I was clear.

      So it is possible, how would the paths be written?

          button1.onRelease = function() {
          _root.Z.gotoAndStop ...
          }
