    Problems with external library

    Hello all!
    I am trying to use external libraries for a tile engine, so I have a bg.swf with a mc class name "tiles" in the library. I load this swf in another one and i cant "attach" the mc tiles on it. I was told that it is possible to use external library in AS3, so this was my atempt, i really aprecciate any help.

    This is the code of the swf i am trying to load the mc tiles:
    PHP Code:
    package
    {
        
    import flash.display.*;
        
    import flash.events.*;
        
    import flash.net.URLRequest;
                
        public class 
    Test extends MovieClip
        
    {
            
            function 
    Test()
            {
                var 
    loader:Loader = new Loader();
                
    loader.load(new URLRequest("Library/bg.swf"));
    loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETEloadComplete);
            }

            function 
    loadComplete(event:Event){
                var 
    library event.target.content;
                
    stage.addChild(new library.tiles())
            }
        }

    The error is "TypeError: Error #1007: Instantiation attempted on a non-constructor."

    Obs:Sorry for the bad english.

    Thanks in advance.

    At least it's wrong to call 'library.tiles()', the Flash compiler couldn't understand what you mean exactly. Usually your 'library' is a Sprite instance, how can you find a function .tiles() under that?

    Have you tried to create new instance with 'tiles()' directly?

    I didn't try this but I loaded external swf files like you. The classes automatically generated from library linkage in those external swfs will be seen in some way from the main stage (what I found there couldn't be used a same class name in main library and external swfs library). Unfortunately we don't have enough debug information for more details.

    I think you might could call a function inside your external swf to create a new instance of 'tiles' class and return the reference back to main stage, thus you can addChild it anywhere.
