can a movie remember the order in which external swf's are loaded
Desperate for in depth explanation
I have a main movie that loads in external movies, I want flash to remember what order the movies are loaded in and store the information for retrieval. I will then have a back button on each external movie and when you click the back buton it retrieves the previous movie.
I know this is a big question, I do understand actionscript basics but am just starting to get into storing values in variables and arrays, I think the biggest stumbling block for me with this challenge is how can flash remember what happened five or six steps previous.
Appreciate any help or advice or links to tutorials on this.
I find it really helps to think of flash a a very simple version of my thinking. If I'm going to remember a list of things that just happened Im going to have to right them down. So using an array is a great way of keeping track of your movies and their levels.
Grant Skinners gave a presentation at Flash in the Can a few months ago on implementing multiple Undo and Redo in Flash. Check it out. His flash presentation notes and his working file can be downloaded at http://www.gskinner.com/talks/fitc2004/

thanks for that very interesting but also a little over my head, I think the cons far outweigh the pro's for now
