Loading into depths

Since I didn’t get a single reply to the main thread, I’m going to try and simplify the problem:

I’m creating a movie clip with AS:

this.createEmptyMovieClip("pool", 1)

and I’m also loading an external .swf in:


How do I load the external .swf in “above” the movie clip being created by createEmptyMovieClip? It is always on top of it, on the highest depth, and I’d like the mp3player.swf to be on top instead.

here’s the original thread: http://www.kirupa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=301320

Please help.

create another empty movie clip in pool and give it a depth of 2, then load the mp3player into pool.new_mc.loadMovie.

the “pool” mc is being scaled to the width of the browser, so that wouldn’t work.

(the mp3player shouldn’t be scaled)

this.createEmptyMovieClip(“pool”, -1)


player.loadMovieNum(“mp3player.swf”, 2);

I found a solution!

this.createEmptyMovieClip(“pool”, 1);

this.createEmptyMovieClip(“player”, 2);

player.loadMovie(“mp3player.swf” );

thank you for your replies
