ActionScript 2.0 :: Main Container - Loading SWF Into MC Via Button

May 10, 2004

I'm working with several nested movie clips. My Main container (the GUI), and the content MC's. The Main Container loads, via a button, another SWF file into the MC
"_root.content" (_root.content.loadMovie("filename.swf"))

Within that loaded swf file I've got a script to load information from an XML file, and add it to several dynamic text boxes. The XML loads fine, and the SWF file works fine, as long as it isn't in my container movie..
itmHeader = _root.attachMovie("movieName", "movieAlias")

I have tried root, parent, and this.. and none of them work while the SWF file is loaded into the container movie.. and the only one that works when I run the SWF file by it's self _root.attachMovie is the only command that shows the information as intended (at all).

ActionScript 2.0 :: Loading Main Navigation In External SWF Through Container Movie

Dec 30, 2008

I have attached two pictures. Basically I am making a website. The main navigation loads in external swf's through a container movie. For this I have used this tutorial : [URL]. What I want to do is- when you rollover the navigation bar, be it the text or the coloured block- I want it to scroll down and reveal the 'sub navigation'. (pic2) It's like a drop down menu but kind of the other way around. Then, when you either rolloff of the navigation bar or click on a menu button, it slides back up to its original state. (Pic1). I have played around and only managed a sloppy version which doesn't work very well, especially when you resize. I think a simple answer to this is if I could get my buttons to work inside a movie clip. I had tried this but then the swfs wouldn't load properly.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading External SWFs From Another External Swf Into The Main SWF Container?

May 4, 2011

I have created a main "site.swf" file that loads a "default.swf" file into a container after a preloader. On this default.swf file I have buttons that needs to load new external SWF files in its place in the container. All of the external SWFs contain buttons and navigations that will also call up other external SWFs into this container. So, I would like to know how to program each button (some are movieclips as buttons) to unload itself and load the respective SWF into the container (eg. AboutUsButton to call up aboutus.swf into the container). I do not have a main navigation on the site.swf file bacause the navigation changes on each SWF that needs to be loaded into the container.

Target Container On Main Timeline?

May 19, 2009

I have 3 movieclips on the main stage.

btn1, 2, 3

I have this code in the maintime line, that when i click a button, the btn the stays static (like its on), when i click another btn, it switches on the next button and loads an external swf.

Each button's instance name is button1, 2, 3..and more buttons I add the stage I would increase the button number, so for 3 buttons on stage I have up (var buttonNum:Number = 3

var buttonNum:Number = 1;
for (i=1; i<=buttonNum; i++) {
this["button"+i].onRollOver = function() {


This all works fine.

I have built a scroller with thumbnails as movieclips and would like to add this code to movieclips.

The thumbnails are indivdual moviclips and are inside a movieclip (productscroll), as the dragbar i am using targets the clip (productscroll) to scroll the thumbnails.

I basically need the same actions as the buttons. When I click a thumbnail I need to load an external swf.

Professional :: Button Container In Button Container?

Feb 13, 2012

What I am trying to do is basicly a button, where I can exchange the color of the button and the displayed icon (square, question mark, arrow etc.) via script separately.

Currently I have two containers. One is a MovieClip container for the icons, where I have a different icon in each frame and another MovieClip container for the button backgrounds, containing the same button with different colors in each frame. The icon container is the same for all frames of the button container.

Its instance has a name. In the script layer there is just a stop(); in every frame. Now the problem is that due to background and icon both being a button symbol (they need to be in order for them to have the 'down' and 'over' states), that the build-in click events are handled separately, meaning, that when the icon is clicked, only the icon's state is changed to 'down' and if the button is clicked, only the button's state is changed to 'down'.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Can't Get Main To Load Into Container Automatically At Specific Time

Feb 27, 2004

I've got index.swf which is the file with the container. main.swf is the file to be loaded onto index.swf.I can't get my main to load into the container automatically at a specific time. When I click on the button the animation plays perfectly though.Maybe because loadMovie is unable to load over index.swf?I haven't inserted code for any of the other buttons yet though. I want to be sure I can make this work before I start doing everything else. I think it shouldn't matter though cause its only meant to load at a specific time.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Swf Called Main.swf Which Has A Container Movieclip That Gets External Swf's Loaded Into It

Jul 28, 2004

I have one swf called main.swf which has a container movieclip that gets external swf's loaded into it.

my external swf is called hosting and it calls an array of data that is loaded into a movieclip that is duplicate for each element from the database. The elements from the database are as follows:


Each one of these has a button over it that when press loads information from the database into a movieclip that contains a textbox. My button code is: _root.movieclip.loadVariables("url to database");

This works flawlessly when I run the hosting.swf by itself, but when it is loaded into the contianer in the main.swf the buttons dont work. I believe that it is the _root in the button call that is causing this but I dont know how to fix it. I think the _root variable changes when hosting is loaded into the main.swf.

I Have a flashmovie thats almost done and will soon hit the internet, but I want to add some animations into the website it�s two gears that I�m about to put at the bottom of the page and when a button releases in the main flashmovie the two bottom gears will turn a few frames and just stand still.These three movies are all separate (main movie, first gear and second gear).

It's a homepage designed in HTML and flash that has this "main flashmovie" in the middle of the screen, the size is about 1500(width)X800(height). And the gears is about 800wX200h placed at the left and right side bottom of the page. Dont worry the site is easy to apply to any screen resolution.I have been looking everywhere for any soul out there who suffering from the same problem but no success. Is it possible to script a button in the main movie to launch two separate movies in their own contents?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Buttons And Transitions - Load In External Swf Files Into An Empty Movie Clip On The Main Stage Called Container

Jan 11, 2004

I have a problem with buttons and transitions and it is similar to a problem I had a couple of days ago that I posted and that was sorted out. I have two buttons onstage (they're inside a movie clip) inside the movie, on the button one I have the following


I have similar code on button two and this does indeed make the buttons move into place as required. My problem is this, I need to load in external swf files into an empty movie clip on the main stage called container. These External SWF files have transitions and this is where my problem is. If I place a normal button on the stage it works but not if the button is inside a movie clip and has actions applied as above. The code next is what I have believe should also be placed on the button to make swf transition one load in.

I'm using this code to load the swf into a movieclip called 'Holder':

var urlrHome:URLRequest = new URLRequest("myMovie.swf")


My 'Holder' is bigger than the swf importing, but ideally i would like to resize and position it in the center of the stage... (at the moment, the movie loads in small and sits at the top left corner of the stage, even though my container is in the middle...

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading SWF Into Container And Interact From There?

If a swf file is destined to be loaded into a container file and interacted with from there, is it considered better practice for the code for the interaction to reside in the loaded file or the container file? I am writing on the timeline, rather than creating classes. Also if a movie clip on the stage contains buttons with event listeners attached and I remove the movie clip as a child, do the event listeners disappear with it, or should i remove them separately?

I can get the .swf to load inside the ADM Flash Player Item, but it seems like it can't access the options.xml file.When I run the .swf OUTSIDE of the illustrator container, everything works as it is supposed toI thought it might be a security/permissions issue, but wouldn't that come into play even when it's run outside of illustrator
