How do I communicate between the main movie and an externally loaded swf movie in flash ?
Posted on 2004-09-25
I can load external swf into my main movie. I want to know how to communicate between an externally loaded swf and the main movie. Say I wanted to get the current frame number of the externally loaded swf as I played how would I do that? Also say I had a button in the external swf that I wanted to use to play a frame number or label in the main movie how would I do that ? And finally how do I control the externally loaded swf like gotoandplay a frame number or label in the external swf?
As I find loading external swf's into a movie clip easier to control so you may want to take that into account when answering
Any help would be appreciated
