I have a project I'm working on. I am loading a swf file I
created into a Flash 8 movie. The swf file has a scroll bar that
works great when published from the originating fla file. I can get
the swf file to load just fine into the Flash 8 movie but the
scroll bar in the swf doesn't work.
The ActionScript to load the swf is as follows:
Any ideas on why the scroll bar in the swf isn't working when
loaded into the Flash movie?
Probably because you used _root within your scrollbar code.
If that's the
case you can fix by setting lockroot to true, within your
scroll bar swf.
Just place a this._lockroot = true; as the first line in
frame 1's code.
That being said, it's better to simply avoid using _root.
