    embedded .swf -- but larger

    transistor06

      Hey everyone, got an interesting question for you...

       

      Let's say I have 2 .swf files.  #2 will be dynamically loading into #1.

       

      Lets say the stage size of #1 is 600x400.

       

      Lets say the stage size of #2 is 800x600.

       

      Is it possible to load a larger .swf file (#2) into a smaller one (#1), and somehow see the whole thing?

       

      As in, not crop the embedded file to the dimensions of the smaller "containing" file??

       

       

      Thanks in advance

          #2 is the bigger swf and #1 is the smaller swf.

           

          Create a movieclip to the size of your #2 swf (800x600) and give it an instance name of thescaled_mc. Now scale thescaled_mc using the 'free transform' tool (Q) . Place thescaled_mc anywhere in #1. Now load your #2 (using loadMovie) in to "thescaled_mc" That should do it.

           

          On Timeline

          loadMovie("#2.swf", _root.thescaled_mc);


          Cheers.

            on your loader mc put this:

            onClipEvent(data) {

            setProperty("",_width, 50);

            setProperty("",_height,50);

            } instead of 50 put whatever you want.

            Mind that this method works only if you have a rectangle shape in the backgrounf

            of the loaded movie so that the container can read the width and height.
