I’m sure this is pretty straightforward stuff, but I’m really just starting to get a handle on general actionscript - so any help would be tremendously appreciated.
Here’s what I’m trying to do:
I have a parent container movie that has several buttons on it. As it stands now the buttons trigger an instance of a MC on the main timeline to play using the “with” action (no biggie)
I would like to put a frame action in that MC instance that uses the “LoadMovieNum” action to load a particular external SWF movie into the container movie depending on which button the user clicked.
In theory I guess I need to somehow associate each button with it’s corresponding SWF child movie that is to be loaded (SetVariable?)
Then I need to pass that information to the MC instance in the main timeline that actually uses the LoadMovieNum command to load the SWF file.
Help anybody teach me how to do this, preferably without embarrassing me too much
Thanx in advance,
