Is there anyway to have an externally loaded swf disable a button on the swf that loaded it.
Let me explain my situation to clarify.
I have a main fla file that has navigation buttons (next and previous page). Once they are clicked, they go to a certain frame, and then load an external swf. I do this to keep the main fla light weight. Problem is, the content overlays the next and previous buttons from the main fla and those button still work. I would like to disable them once the external swf is loaded and once it is closed, reactivate them. I tried putting root.exampleinstancename.visible = false, but they following error occurs
"1119: Access of possibly undefined property main_mc through a reference with static type flash.display:DisplayObject.
