your absolute path to pagebox_btn is the absolute path to your target movieclip (into which you load loadswf_mc).
if you don't understand the above post your loadMovie(), loadMovieNum() or loadClip() statements used to load all your swfs starting with the one in your _level0 swf.
Thanks for replying. This is how I have the move loaded
pagebox_btn is in the main timeline of mainPlayer.swf
I just don't understand why I can't get the _visible property to work
_root.loadswf_mc.pagebox_btn is the correct path/name to your button if pagebox_btn is on the main timeline of mainPlayer.swf.
however, you can't access that button until loading is complete and your external swf is initialized. ie, use preloader code to ensure loading is complete before trying to set the _visible property of your button.
That was it! It wasn't fully loaded. Thank you so much!
