Hi, I hope someone can help point me in the right direction.
I have a movie that loads other SWFs using MovieClipLoader.
If the SWFs being loaded by MovieClipLoader are older files and
contain loadMovie statements, those movies don't seem to get
For example, I have a master SWF that loads another SWF (via
MovieClipLoader) and that SWF contains a button that loads a
demonstration SWF (via loadMovie). Everything works fine until I
click the button to start the demonstration. When the button is
clicked I just get a white screen.
Am I missing a key concept with MovieClipLoader? I have read
and re-read the online help but can't seem to find the answer.
I don't know of any reason that the combination shouldn't
work. But my guess is there is something else going on.
Generally the problem would be one of two things. If your
loadMovie statment looks something like this:
In that case since the older swf that contains that line has
been loaded into another swf (with the MCL) then the _root has
changed and the myHolder clip is no longer on the _root timeline.
The other problem could be that you have stored your
different clips in different folders? In that case, all paths to
external resources (swf, jpg, txt, flv, etc.) will be relative to
the html page/projector file and not relative to the calling swf.
