    Importing externally stored as3 class code from XML?

    celebritymusic Level 1

      Hi

       

      I have the following code string stored in an XML file:

       

      MovieClip(parent).gotoAndStop(15);

       

       

      I've imported this to the global var...

       

      globals.data.navtest

       

      ...using...

       

      globals.data.navtest = test.toString();

       

       

      It works fine - if I trace(globals.data.navtest); it outputs MovieClip(parent).gotoAndStop(15);

       

       

      What I want to do now is actually use globals.data.navtest in my Flash project to execute MovieClip(parent).gotoAndStop(15);

       

      How do I do that?  Do I have to import it as something other than a string, or do I have to code something that tells flash "execute the code that is in globals.data.navtest" ?

       

      I want to keep all of the code in the XML tag, so I can change any of it without opening Flash CS4.

       

      Thanks for your help guys.
