    Hello any and all,

    Ok, I need a actionScript (or what ever) that that loads an (.swf) into another (.swf) in another frameset. Also the movie needs to load to level 2 inside that (.swf) of that other frameset. Can this be done?

    God I hope so… Please if you can, please help…

    Thanks stranger...

    First do you mean in 1 other frame of one frameset?

    So, recap...

    From, I guess, a button in one frame of a frameset, you want to load a .swf on level 2 of another .swf already loaded in another frame of that same frameset?

    Yes, but it’s an ‘html link’ in one frame of a frameset, I want to load a .swf on level 2 of another .swf already loaded in another frame of that same frameset…

    But can't work on this right now! Maybe later, if nobody else responds.

    It's an easy issue, you can use the LocalConnection() object for this, but you will have to prepare BOTH movies for this (if you want a button to load the movie into the flash movie in the other "frameset", you will HAVE to make that button in flash, you can't do it with a gif).

    You can find details on how to use it here:

    I'm not going to describe the whole thing because I'll just confuse you, but it just works like a function call, the only difference is that it calls functions set in other movies..it's a very, very easy and even more useful trick!

    Cheers!

    One other thing oldnewbie,

    This isn't going to reload the topFrame set is it?

    I am having problems with the topFrame becoming SCROLL=YES, and I can't have it do that, I've set it to SCROLL=NO.

    Thanks again for your help!

    oldnewbie,

    No, I really think I should dig in and try to make this work myself. With the direction you've given me I hope to put all the pieces together. This stuff is fun!

    When I am done with the project I will let you know what happened.

    Thanks again oldnewbie... Thanks, thanks, thanks!

    May I single out the fact that I wasn't the one that pointed you to the LocalConnection bit, I wouldn't of used that myself! So if you get it working, your thanks should be directed to a true professional (read friendly sarcasm please!)... And I have named Keyone.it!

    In case it doesn't work... The other professional way!

    http://odin.prohosting.com/~oldnew/f...g/frameset.htm

    Didn't use an html link in the bottom frame (used a standard window button), but you could use whatever you wanted.

    Everything you need to know is in the htmls!

    Actually the other way around is very good too, I tend to forget about HTML's new features, like the integration of buttons for flash.
    Remember about making things cross-platform, as it is more likely to encounter unsupported features outside flash, rather than inside (that's why I try to build everything directly in flash....I know it would be great if Netscape and Mac supported all the features that you get with IE6 on PC...). (On the other side, statistically it's easier that people have already got the latest Flash plug-in rather than the latest browser version. It's mostly caused by the tedium of having to download such big amounts of data for the browser update.... this means that you have to be careful with advanced DHTML or Javascript features).

    If you are looking for help on that side, you can visit this site of a friend of mine http://dhtmlcentral.com/


    oldnewbie, I'm sorry, I thought I was dealing with a very childish man, but in fact you are probably just a young kid, so you have all the rights to act like that.. and I'm sorry for you if your parents can't do any better..

    You kids really don't have a sense of humour and take all of this very too seriously...
