Hello experts!

I have a custom flash menu I have built using flash cs3.
It is basically a bunch of animated movieclips (onRollOver).

I am loading this Flash SWF through the use of a SWF loader in my Flex app.

How do I access the content of the flash swf??
I want to code something like (I know this is as2 but it's just easier to give the example):

flashswf.movieclip1.onRelease = function() {
     change state of main flex app to 'state1'
}

Do I have to code this in the flash swf? or can I use the flex swf to do so?

thanks!

According to me your Flash file must have all the required functionality as such it works when you its complete. But As per the documentation I suppose it says that these events will trigger on the Flash loaded. The whole SWF file is loaded is considered as a single component.

You have access to the loaded movies root through the content property, as long as the flash movie is actionscript 3 you can manipulate it directly eg. swfLoader.content.addEventListener( "yourFlashEvent", yourHandler);
swfLoader.content.someFunction();
swfLoader.content.someVariable = 3;
