The question, here, is a simple one. The execution, however,
has turned out to make for one devil of an app.
My application, in essence, is a simple image map with
buttons. The user clicks a button, and a menu SWF, made using
ScriptOcean's menu app, given to me by another department, is
overlayed in the appropriate place until the user selects another
menu somewhere else. This makes it extremely easy on me, as all I
need to do is position the menu and move on to graphic design and
placement on the appropriate webpage.
The problem here, is that I can make very little modification
to the appropriate menu SWF. In essence, this means that any AS or
graphic changes I make to the menu must exist for all frames of
said menu so that I can easily apply them again if the menu
changes. What I have been trying to do of late is assign global
event listeners to certain functions within the menu SWF so that I
can easily code in responses to common tasks within the menu code,
so that I can simply load them into an invisible container that
exists in all frames of the timeline, and duplicate that container
into any subsequent menu revisions.
As of now, almost all links inside the menu use getURL. To
put it simply, is there a way to define getURL as broadcaster, so
that I can listen to it from inside the container's layer, which
activates on upon loading? Many thanks in advance, by the
