I have a stop action on frame 10 of mc called "moodboard" in
scene 1 and trying to load a movie called "pop up" into the mc
It's not working...does this script only work when the button
is on scene 1 and your attaching a movie into scene 1 or can it be
modified to attach a movie into another movie?
no, attachMovie will function from any place in the timeline
provided you have the correct linkages set.
Do you have a MC in the Library that has a 'Linkage
identifier' of 'pop up' ? (btw you should avoid using spaces in
your naming of items, or it may be a typeo here :) also is the
Export in first frame check box set to true?
additionally this code will attach the 'popup' MC to the
'attachMovie_btn' instance, if you would want this to attach to the
main timeline you should target an MC instance or refer to either
'_root' (not my favorite) OR ' _parent' OR '_level0'.
