any ideas why a loadin swf, that loads into an empty movie clip, won't obey the same code?

have modified it to that below - content_container is the empty clip at  _root level

bytes_loaded = Math.round(_root.content_container.getBytesLoaded());
bytes_total = Math.round(_root.content_container.getBytesTotal());
getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
_root.content_container.loadBar._width = getPercent*100;
_root.content_container.loadText.text = Math.round(getPercent*100)+"%";
if (bytes_loaded == bytes_total) {
     _root.content_container.gotoAndPlay(3);
}

thanks

Hi,

you have used absolute reference to _root here...
when this swf will be loading inside another swf then _root written in this swf will refer to the _root of _parent swf

a workaround to this is just add following code just above your code:

-----------------------
this._lockroot = true;
-----------------------
above code will lock the swf root in itself and all reference to _root written in this swf will forced to refer to only this root.

updated code of "lodge7.fla" first frame
-------------
bytes_loaded = Math.round(this.getBytesLoaded());
bytes_total = Math.round(this.getBytesTotal());
getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
this.loadBar._width = getPercent*100;
this.loadText.text = Math.round(getPercent*100)+"%";
if (bytes_loaded == bytes_total) {
      this.gotoAndPlay(3);
}
---------------------

copy the same code on first frame of "home.fla"
