Click to See Complete Forum and Search --> : XML loading into MovieClip Help!

06-05-2001, 01:52 PM
I've designed a site where the main movie clip loads in multiple modules by loading them directly into a movieclip. One particular module is loading XML, parsing it, creating a scrollable menu list. When an item from the list is clicked it then loads an html (text) file into a text field variable.

My problem is this...I can get the module to work on its own but when it is imported into the movieclip that resides in the main movie clip the XML isn't loaded and consequently noting works. In all of my other modules I had to add _level0.movie_clip_name before the target name paths. In this particular movie however, it is my first case using a lot of functions and XML importing and I can't seem to get anything to load in.

Does this make sense? its 4:00am and I need to sleep, if anybody can help please let me know and I'll email the files so you can get a quick look.

How are you instantiating? - How are you loading your movie clips? duplicateMovieClip or attachMovie??
