    Controlling properties of clips across movies

    alyyoop
      How can I control the property of a movie clip in the parent movie, from the child movie? I've got a parent movie that loads separate movies into it. I want to move a clip in the parent when the child movie loads. I've tried all of the following in an actions layer in the child timeline with no success:

      setProperty("_parent.btn_selected", _x, "325.2");
      setProperty("_parent._parent.btn_selected", _x, "325.2");
      setProperty("_root.btn_selected", _x, "325.2");

      thanks very much.
