    Change movie size when using loadMovie

    Rylz
      I'm pulling in an external SWF (Flash Paper), replacing an existing MC. The MC dimensions are 600x300; however, the Flash Paper SWF is 450x700. Since Flash Paper only creates an SWF, is there a way I can pass credentials in loadMovie to change the size of the Flash Paper SWF? Right now, I've got

      loadMovie('newsletter/newsletter.swf', 'newsBox');

      Can anything be added in there to dynamically change the size? Thanks!

          this is a limitation of loadMovie. However, if you are using Flash 8 or CS3 AS2, you have access to a class called MovieClipLoader which does have the ability to provide you such functionality since you can actually fire off an event to resize after the external swf is loaded.

            OK, after reading through what MovieClipLoader can do, how would I structure the code to resize the MC? Please advise/elaborate as I don't know what to put in the { } :

            MovieClipLoader.loadMovie('newsletter.swf', 'newsBox');
            MovieClipLoader.onLoadInit = function('newsBox'){
            }
