Accessing Vars and Instances within External SWF

Love the tutorials so thanks very much.

My problem is accessing the variables and instances within an externally loaded swf file. For example, I have a main site and I load the menu into the stage using the loader class and addchild function. How do I access the variables and instances within the menu swf? With AS2 it was:


But that doesn’t work with AS3. The menu file is loading fine for me and if I trace the variable within the menu file and load it into the main file and test the movie, it traces the variable fine.

Many thanks. :slight_smile:
