    How can I reference the parent, without using _parent or _root?

    stevensunsunsun Level 1

      I cannot use the following in my ActionScript due to conflicts with the host application:

       

      _level0

      _root

      _parent references

      On a pop-up box I have a close button with an absolute reference:
      closeBtn.onRelease = function  () {
      unloadMovie("_level0.Page_1.holderBox");
      }
      Is there another way to make this work without using _level0 or _parent?
      I've read that it is possible to use a global variable on the main timeline and ref that, but cannot get that to work.
