1. maybe there are some movieclips loaded into a higher _level?
2. Or maybe extraInfo_mc is not a dynamic movie, but a movieclip on the timeline?
if 1 - load extraInfo_mc on a higher _level
if 2 - link from libary and use attachMovie()
The way things are placed in the movieclip hierarchy makes a big difference. Swapping depths or other methods of setting depth only work if the two or more movieclips you are working with are in the same level in the movieclip hierarchy. You may be trying to set a movieclip within a movieclip to a higher depth than something one level back in the hierarchy. It can get confusing pretty quickly and it is imperative that you have a firm grasp on how your movieclips are arranged. For help with that, I like to use x-ray, found at http://osflash.org/xray.
I got it. I can see how quickly it gets confusing. I just linked it to the loader and made sure the loaders depth was the highest on the "main" timeline.
not sure if it's proper but I didn't really attach it to a movie clip
I just used:
without a movieClip in front of it. Will I have troubles later or is it just attaching it to the timeline somehow?
anyway, it works.
Thanks all that replied.
