    My scrollbar works outside of the main Flash movie, but not in it. What's wrong?

    Okay, I have a flash movie that loads a .swf inside of it. The scroll bar works (not 100%), but works outside of the main one, but not at all inside.

    See main at http://www.iamnotmyown.net/rof/RoF1.html and click the "Info" link
    • this one doesn't work


    See .swf that is inside main at http://www.iamnotmyown.net/rof/Section 2.swf
    • this one, if you scroll down far enough you can't scroll back up to the top, but you can still at least scroll...


    I used this tutorial to make my scrollbar.

    Could someone please offer some insight as to why this isn't working?

    _root

    the _root refers to the parent swfs maintimeline in the one that doesn't work. You'll have to use _parent instead. In general _root is weak because it's not portable.

    hope that fixes it.
