For a website I'm creating I'm going to have a main swf file
that loads individual swf files for each page. Each page's swf file
loads in external text files through dynamic text boxes so i can
edit the website easily. To load the swf files into the main swf
file I'm using the loader component. Everything works fine except
thedynamic text boxes of the swf files that are nestled in the main
one do not load properly. Instead, in each text box i get a message
similar to this:
NewsLoader is the instance of the loader component, and News1
is a variable called in through a dynamic text field from the html
document entitled News1.html. The individual news swf file loads
the text properly, but when the news swf file is loaded into the
main swf file the text is replaced with the message above.
the problem might be due to the changed references if you
load the movie into another one.
is NewsLoader a MovieClip instance inside the main movie or
inside the mc that is loaded into the main movie?
If it resides inside the exteranly loaded movie, you will
either need to use the lockroot attribute or use a relative
reference to the News1 variable.
Since the _level0 always points to the _root timeline (the
one of the outer most movieclip) _level0 used in the external mc is
different once the external movieclip is loaded into another movie.
I suggest only using relative references, makes live much
NewsLoader is the instance of the Loader component in my main
swf file, and I have this code:
NewsLoader.content._lockroot = true;
I also think it has something to do with the code above or
something similar that's causing the problem. I'm not using exact
references because the script to load in the html files for my
dynamic text is this:
This is in the news swf which is loaded into the main
