Externally loading menu mc, doesn't show up. please help.

Hi,

I'm affraid I'm still having a problem making my menu appear where the scroller is.
The scroller loads, but when products is clicked and the menu mc is loaded, nothing shows up.
Is the menu positioned correctly?

Here is what I have:
http://flashmx7.tripod.com/ee-temp.zip

Here is a reference explaining the  ongoing  problem:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/WebDevSoftware/Flash/Q_21182809.html

The last post from the above link works, I just need MY menu to show up. I don't know why it isn't.

Thanks for any help.

i still don't understand your problem so i'll pass on this one, and let fixitben and the others sort you out.
i've read and re-read your posts *blonde moment* - also your page has been blocked by my system administrator.

good luck.

1. menu was hardcoding the keyword "_root", making it unusable when loaded in a movieclip. This is a corrected version: http://www.negatyve.com/EE/menu_corrected.zip
2. select "prodmenu" movieclip in your index movie, open Action panel, and delete the code:

on (release) {
      _root.contents.loadMovie("products.swf");
      _root.prodmenu.loadMovie("menu.swf");
}

this should be only on "products" button inside the bottom menu

Hi,

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm using MX. The fla won't open, wrong format.

Thanks for the help thus far.

Hi,

that works, thanks. My other problem is that I need it to appear (positioned) were the xml scroller is once products is clicked...

not up in the left hand corner. I don't understand why that's happening because, in menu.fla, I have moved it to the appropriate area on the stage?

Thanks for the prompt help thus far.

Hello again,

I'm having a problem positioning the menu on the stage. It doesn't appear where I put it when I publish and open it in the player. Could someone please tell me what's going on here? Negatyve?

Thanks very much for the help, I'm learning a lot.
