I've been working on this problem for a couple of days but
can't seem to find a way around it. I'd appreciate any help!
Basically, I have a swf file which contains a small
slideshow, simply 5 buttons along the bottom that flick between 5
different main pictures all inside the swf. I'm trying to load this
swf into a larger application so that it displays on the centre of
the page. I have tried the simple LoadMovie code as follows:
slideshow._x = 200;
slideshow._y = 200;
and this loads in the swf but the buttons will not work at
all. I can see the swf but can't interact with it. When you move
the pointer over the buttons the mouse pointer does change to the
hand to acknowledge it's clickable but on clicking nothing happens.
In an attempt to get it to work I tried using the following
var myMCL:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
var myListener:Object = new Object();
and this loads in the swf perfectly, the buttons all function
no problem at all, but I can't figure out how to reposition the swf
in this manner as it's not loaded into a movie clip. I've tried
_level5._x = 100 but this doesn't seem to affect it at all. I also
tried loading into a movieclip using this method, replacing the 5
with an instance name, but again the buttons stop working.
So basically, i have two questions... Firstly, why are my
buttons refusing to work when loaded into a movieclip? And
secondly, is there any way to reposition a swf when it's loaded in
using the second method. Any help would be greatly appreciated,
it's driving me crazy!
