    nested movies and navigation

    purpleape
      HI,

      Im making a flash portfolio swf that shows some flash work Ive done.

      So, Im loading the actual flash pieces into the main portfolio movie. Some of these flash movies Im loading have further connecting movies that THEY load. So I changed the script in those movies to, instead of reading
      gotoAndStop("down");
      _root.gotoAndStop(2);
      _root.LoadMovie("Imtradernetwork.swf");
      _root.Nav.H.gotoAndStop("out");
      _root.Nav.T.gotoAndStop("out");
      _root.Nav.C.gotoAndStop("out");
      _root.Nav.R.gotoAndStop("out");
      }

      they read

      on (release) {
      gotoAndStop("down");
      this._parent._parent.gotoAndStop(2);
      this._parent._parent.screen.LoadMovie("Imtradernetwork.swf");
      this._parent._parent.Nav.H.gotoAndStop("out");
      this._parent._parent.Nav.T.gotoAndStop("out");
      this._parent._parent.Nav.C.gotoAndStop("out");
      this._parent._parent.Nav.R.gotoAndStop("out");
      }


      BUt it doesnt work, rather than the portfolio piece correctly navigating itself among its nested movies, it goes to the main frame of my portfolio. I am not entirely dumb and have checked the path, it should work. Even when I take out a _parent, it still goes to the top level of my portfolio movie.

      Please help? Thanks Heidi
