Changing Coordinates of an AS2 SWF When loading into a AS3 content loader

Hi Folks,

I have a drag and drop exercise that works fine in AS2. I am trying to load this drag and drop into a AS3 shell.

The problem I am facing is as soon as the swf is loaded the coordinates of the AS2 clip is changed and the drop zones have been moved to a different coordinates.

Any way to reset the coordinates like using globaltgolocal or some other method to align the coordinates to that of the AS3 loader stage.

in the as2 file, try lockroot
thing is you can't really integrate the AS3 and AS2 files
come to think of it, the lockroot shouldn't make a difference to coordinates, but try it - nothing to lose

you can try the globlaToLocal  - case of try it as well
