How do I correct this error, Incorrect number or arguments.

I know I need something in the parenthesis of swfComplete when I run the function.  I've tried everything.

1136: Incorrect number of arguments.  Expected 1.

Thanks.

stop();
var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("myURL");
var swfLoader:Loader = new Loader();
swfLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, swfComplete);
var newID = 0;
function swfComplete(e:Event):String {
       MovieClip(swfLoader.content).innerVariable = newID; 
    	   
	return (newID);
	   
	  }
 
	   swfLoader.load(request);
 
swfComplete();

Open in new window

If you want to call swfComplete yourself even though you've designed it for an event listener

"swfLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, swfComplete);"

you can just call it passing null or a new object of the specified parameter type as long as you're not using anything specifically set automatically in that parameter. That is to say, because you're not using the variable "e" inside your swfComplete function you can call it like this:

swfComplete( null );

or

swfComplete( new Event( "myDummyEvent ) );

just to add. why are you calling swfComplete?
seems pointless as mynamebecory said - you've created an event listener - so your swfcomplete will trigger automatically once your swf loader has finished loading.

I'm new to actionscript and I was trying to use the value of the variable created inside the function.  How would I get the value of newID if I don't call the function.  Thanks.
