I dropped a UILoader onto a stage so an external .swf file will play within it (let's call it "external.swf"). I can see "external.swf" and all in my movie, but it doesn't maintain its original width and height; it covers everything in my movie. I DO have some things off to the side of the stage within external.swf that's showing. (the external.swf is a simple slide-show that moves images across the stage.)
How can I get it so the UILoader only shows what's on the stage for external.swf?
P.S. I'm using the UILoader component, I didn't hard-code this.
You can try using a rectangular movieclip that is the size of yourloaded swf's stage as a mask for the UILoader. Just draw the rectangle, convert it into a movieclip, place it where the loader is, give it an instance name (like "msk"), and in the code you would asssign it as the UILoaders mask using...
loaderName.mask = msk;
I masked it and it worked.
Thanks for the help!
