    Are u the brightest spark @ flash kit??


    I'm need some help on this one. I am using the following code to load up sub menus from a html text file attached to a button, but I also want to link the sub menu's to individual movie files.

    So any ideas on how I do this?

    This is the code I am using to get my sub menus from a notepad text file:

    var menuVisible;

    subMenuItem._visible = 0;

    function theMenu (n) {

    var newY = 10;

    for (var i=0; i<n; i++) {

    duplicateMovieClip ("subMenuItem", "select"+i, i);

    this["select"+i]._y = newY;

    this["select"+i]._visible = 0;

    this["select"+i].selectText = _parent.subMenu[i];

    newY = newY+20;



    function subMenuVis (b) {

    for (i=0; i<_parent.subMenu.length; i++) {

    this["select"+i]._visible = b;



    What I don’t know is where to place the code for loading a movie and how to get the submenu buttons to activate the movie/image files for each button whether there be 1 of 10 of them.

    Can anyone help me out on this as it is becoming a right mare!!

    You've cross posted this in 3 different forums.

    Only post in one place, and have some patience.
    The correct forum for Actionscript problems is the Actionscript forum, not here or Scripting and Backend.
