Losing actions when accessing swf through loadMovie in Flash MX
Posted on 2007-03-29
Hi! I am using Flash MX to build a website. I am completely trying to learn as I go, so sorry if I don't use the correct terminology!
I have built it so that the main page only has main navigation on it, and then there are 3 blank movie clips in which I do loadMovie, and separate swf files then load for the main content, second and third levels of navigation. I hope this wasn't a stupid move, but I was hoping it would save time if I need to change content down the road.
So, my problem: on my second and third levels of navigation, I have built horizontal menus that have arrows on either side and when you rollover the arrows the menu moves left or right. So it works perfectly when I do Publish Preview when I only have the file open for the navigation, but when I Publish Preview the main page, the arrows do nothing. Is there something I am doing totally wrong, or is this not even possible to do?
I am sure you need to look at some code or files or something, but I will wait until you ask for them because I am not sure which parts are vital, or how to upload files, so just give me direction on what you need. Thank you SO much for your help, and I hope I explained this in a halfway decent manner!!
