XML menu and external SWFs

I need some help.

Having used this excellent tutorial (http://www.kirupa.com/developer/actionscript/xml_dropdown_menu.htm)
to set up a menu I am now trying to set it up so that I can get external swf files to load into a holder when the buttons on the menu are clicked. I have looked at several of the other tutorials, including this one (http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx2004/transitions2.htm) and the example here ([url=“http://www.kirupa.com/web/xml/examples/portfolio.htm”]http://www.kirupa.com/web/xml/examples/portfolio.htm), and have spent the last 5 hours pulling my hair out.

If anyone could look at my code and either tell me where I’m going wrong or where to find the right answers that would be greatly appreciated.



i have a similar issue, in my case
everything is working properly but the client require to disable all the buttons till the external movie is loaded, after it loads the button should be enable! how to do that??? please help.
