Subject: FLASH: Loading Movie into MC in FL4!
From: Tommy D'Aquino
Date: Mon, 27 Nov 2000 08:05:28 GMT

I desperately need help with a problem that I need to resolve quickly.

I'm developing a little interactive interface which loads various .SWFs into
a placeholding MC. I'm loading into the MC instead ofon levels so that I can
better control the placement of the loaded movie.

The problem is, when the movies are loaded, I'm losing control of some of
the actions because they are targeted to that .SWFsmain timeline.

Let me explain better w/ a little scenario:
The interface is called Framework. Within Framework is a menu, a text area
and a movieDisplay area (very similar to the Product Catalog project in
Flash Magic - that's where I got this idea). The menu loads a little "build
a snowman" game (snowman.swf) into the movieDisplay area (movieHold_mc).
Snowman.swf has lots of drag and _droptarget MCs in it. This is where the
problem is. I've defined the _dropTarget area in the snowman.swfs main
timeline and it's not recognized once loaded into the interface.

How do I specify the _dropTarget area in my source file so that it's
recognized when loaded into the Host movie?

Thanks for any advice!
