I am running out of time and out of options here, but I am stuck with a problem for a site I am working on.
Instead of writing it all down here, a visible approach is maybe good to save difficult to understand bla bla.
so : open the following link in the browser
wait for the two interfaces to load.
you will see several buttons , now drag the “mix-me” button on the bottle or in the rectangular area on the bottom.
a few moments later, a mixmovie appears. this mixmovie contains actionscript code to scroll the different recipes left and right.
now here is my problem.
I loaded the ****tail.swf file into an empty movie clip with instance name content_dummy. It loads perfectly but the actions in the ****tail.swf file seem all to be gone.
This does not happen with the loadmovieNum method but I would prefer to have it loaded into the dummy movieclip, because it is more manageable ?
can anyone help ?
XIII, because of the Kocktail.swf doestn work properly when I write it as I should but it is with a C
Sorry , code is FLASH MX, thx again
since you said it works with loadMovieNum… remove _root from all the scripts and use this/_parent instead.
Kax, I would love to use this approach, however it will not solve my problem.
I will need to use loadmovie where i have NO option to use this method.
However ? would it be a bug in Flash that some people have and I dont ? I am just guessing here, but I think it is strange to be able to keep the actions specified if loadMovieNum is used and nothing works with a target clip.
I really need to work with the target clip
no! i’m not telling you to use loadMovieNum!!
do not use _root in your scripts, use relative addressing (this and/or _parent). that’s what i said. =)
so you mean on the button action :
the button with this action is located in the following movie clip relative to the main stage :
scene1 -> ****tail button -> ****tail black circle
I used this parent thing but it doesnt seem to work either.
Thx for your patience (y)
PS is absolute pathing giving me a hard time here ???
nope… you need to fix the addressing in kocktail.swf, not the main movie. :-\
