All I'm trying to do is load an external .swf file into a precise location on the stage of my existing Flash file. I've spent an hour and a half on this site search and found nothing. Can someone please help? What do I add to my loadMovie command to place the file at specific x,y coordinates?
What code are you using to load the file? You need to have the movieclip that it is being loaded into located at your desired _x and _y locations.
Yes, I know I do. But what is the code that makes that happen??? It's dumb, it's basic, but I can't find it.
You want to load it into a movieclip that is positioned where you want it to be...
new_mc._x = 50;
new_mc._y = 50;
Once it is loaded into that movieclip, it replaces it and you can use the instance name to target it if needed (new_mc in that example).
