    using global variables in loadMovie

    Level 7
      Hi,

      I have a main SWF movie where I declare a global variable :

      _global.languagechoice = "french";

      on the first frame.
      I later user loadMovie to load a second SWF into the main movie. I can't
      seem to access the "languagechoice" variable though. here is what I have
      tried :

      if (_global.languagechoice == "french") {
      caption-en._visible = false;
      caption-fr.gotoAndStop(1);
      } else {
      caption-fr._visible = false;
      caption-en.gotoAndStop(1);
      }

      ****** and I tried this

      if (languagechoice == "french") {
      caption-en._visible = false;
      caption-fr.gotoAndStop(1);
      } else {
      caption-fr._visible = false;
      caption-en.gotoAndStop(1);
      }

      ****** and I tried this

      if (_root.languagechoice == "french") {
      caption-en._visible = false;
      caption-fr.gotoAndStop(1);
      } else {
      caption-fr._visible = false;
      caption-en.gotoAndStop(1);
      }

      I also tried them all just using single "=" as well, but nothing works,
      any thoughts? is it possible?

      Thaks for any input
