Prob with _alpha in external swfs


Please bear with while I try to explain this!! :slight_smile:

I have a main flash file which has 2 blank container mc’s one loads the external navigation swf, the other loads the external content swf. I have another invisible mc off the main stage which contains the actionscript transition for the page content.

When I press a button on the navigation is sets a variable _global.newpage it then tells the transition to go to the frame “fade out” where I have this script…

onEnterFrame = function() {
        this._parent.pagecontent._alpha = this._parent.pagecontent._alpha + (0 - this._parent.pagecontent._alpha)/3;

the next frame is then

if (this._parent.pagecontent._alpha>=1) {

So once it has faded out completely, the movies goes on to this frame where it loads the _global.newpage variable & should set the alpha of the page to 100%…

loadMovie(_global.newpage, _parent.pagecontent);

But the problem is, it doesnt! It loads the new page, fades it on to about 20% alpha then dissapears!

Anyone got any ideas? Please help!

Thanks in advance, Jen :slight_smile:
