Hi

I'd like to delay a gotoandPlay action on my main timeline till another swf has loaded into an empty movie clip that's onstage.

Is that possible?

Thanks
Aidan

Sure,
Use MovieClipLoader for this.
example:
------------------
stop()  // <--stopping the main timeline first

var myLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
var mylistener = new Object();
//
mylistener.onLoadProgress = function(target:MovieClip, bytesLoaded, bytesTotal) {            
   var getcent = bytesLoaded/bytesTotal;
   if (bytesLoaded == bytesTotal) {
          // this is where you want to put the next action after the swf is fully loaded
        _root.gotoAndPlay("YourNextTargetFrameHere");
   };
//
myLoader.addListener(mylistener);
myLoader.loadClip("YourAnotherSwf.swf", YourEmptyMovieClip);
------------------

See that "onLoadProgress" ? you could use another like "onLoadInit" or "onLoadComplete".
Read the MovieClipLoader chapter in Flash help file. That should solve your question :)

cheers,
