Loading a .swf file with predetermined settings.

Loading a .swf file with predetermined settings.

Post by shah10 » Sun, 04 Sep 2005 10:26:34


I'm trying to make a button that allows me to open a swf file and what frame it
should load at. So it should do something like this:

on (release) {
file.swf.gotoandplay ("scene2",7)
}

I know that script is wrong, but just trying to display what my goal is. The
button is on a seperate html page. So it goes from Page1.html (main scene) to
Page2.html, loading the movie on scene 2 and frame 7.

1. controlling a mc in a swf file that is loaded into a swf file.

2. trouble loading xml data into swf that loads into swf

I have a main movie (siteIndex) into which I load a second swf (courseDetails)
that calls upon an XML file (courseDetails.xml) to load a series of swfs
(pages) that are populated with external text.

The folder structure is thus: root (where the siteIndex movie is located) >
courses > details (where the second movie, the xml file and all of the single
page movies are located)

When I run the second movie on its own (courseDetails) everything works as it
should. But when I go to the main movie (siteIndex) and run (courseDetails), I
get the message 'can't load XML' and it indicates that the XML should be
located in the main movie folder. Or that the full path is not specified.



This is the code that loads the second movie:

stop();
courseDetails._lockroot=true;
this.createEmptyMovieClip("mc_2", 10);
mc_2._x = 213;
mc_2._y =159;
mc_2.loadMovie("courses/details/courseDetails.swf");

The second movie uses a component that has one parameter, which is the path to
the XML file that loads the individual pages.

When I change the parameter to the path from the siteIndex movie
(courses/details/courseDetails.xml), the component loads and then informs me
that it can't load the first page.swf (and obviously any subsequent pages). The
error mesasage again suggests that the pages should be located in the root
folder.

Is there a way to solve this problem and leave the correct relative pths in
place?

Many thanks in advance.
