    Looking for the syntax

    targetplanet Level 1
      I have a menu that is populated by an XML file. One of the tasks of the menu is to call a function with in my movie. I would like to keep it open, so I can just put the name of the function in the xml, and it will call that function when an certain Item is pressed. but I can't come up with the right syntax for the job. I have an itentifier in the xml so it knows which buttons are to call a function. The functions are in the parent mc of the menu. I would also like to send properties to a function, but I will worry about that after.

      so I have a function that is called in the menu movie when the internal identifier is caller

      function internal(fn){
      //code to call _parent function goeshere
      //fn is the function name passed form the XML
      }

      I tryed using _parent[eval(fn)], but that didn't work.
      Thanks
