I’ve never tried it before but I targeted an MC in a master swf file, from an externally loaded one. I even set it up to wipe itself off the stage this way. Wooo!!
I have to do this kind of targeting for part of a client’s project and didn’t expect I’d have to link to the “master” from the externally/modularly loaded swfs. If they’d told me that before I’d set up the ■■■■ site differently, I thought.
But this works, as I should have known!! I finally got off my *** and tested this out and it works. I looove this program!! If there is an attractive, or even not-too attractive woman who works for Adobe developing the future generations of Flash then I want to marry her!!
