Loading a mc in a certain area

just say you press on on button and it loads an external mc

how do you make load at a certain area on the main mc?

eg. http://www.dido.co.uk

(enter the flash site and press on one of the menu buttons and it loads an mc on the right)

load it into an empty mc and position the MC

_root.contain._x = 100;

norie, does the site i gave you use an empty mc with the animation on the right?

Just say a empty mc color is white or clear and you load an external mc into it. Ive encountered this and found that if you did have a grey colored bg in the external swf, it loses the grey color and takes the white bg of the empty mc.

why is that? can you keep the external mc’s bg color?
