Hi - thanks for looking
I'm using a movie as an umbrella app that calls in various swf files when a user clicks a button - all works fine.
In the individual swf files that get called up from the above app there are a sequence of scenes that are supposed to run consecutively that call up the frame names as here
This works fine when I run the individual movie outside the umbrella app, however when run from the umbrella app it can't access the frame as it's (i'm guessing) now referencing the umbrella app not the called up swf. Is there a way I can make it reference the called in movie rather than the umbrella app.
Here's the code I use to call in the SWFs
empty_mc._x = 120; empty_mc._y = 85;
The best way to get around this issue is to avoid using _root as a targeting mechanism in your designs. You can include the following line in your imported files as an alternative: this._lockroot = true;
Thanks Ned - works a treat!
