i have a situation where a flash file (Main.fla) is supposed
to load a SWF file (Intro.swf) and play it.
the problem is if load the swf to an empty movieclip (m_mc)
like usual i cant have acces to m_mc._totalframes
m_mc._currentframe(both will return 1) and i will not know when the
Intro.swf will finish playing to continue in Main.fla and do other
NB: i dont have access to Intro.swf (it is on the web)
i tried to solve this by using loadmovienum(Intro.swf,400) '
Loading the movie to a level400 and not to empty movieclip
this way i could get _level400._totalframes and
and i put the following code on the empty Movieclip m_mc
the problem is that this structure is weak and flash
sometimes do it right and sometimes doesnt...
ie sometimes it will keep playing endlessly
and sometimes will not play at all
and sometimes it is ok
please help me as this is very crucial to me and if u have
any suggestion please infrom me
you can detect the _currentframe and _totalframes of any
loaded swf whether loaded into a target movieclip (empty or not) or
level. you just need to wait until loading is complete before
trying to access the _totalframes property and you need to wait
until loading starts before trying to access the _currentframe
