Can anyone help me? I want to use 2 fla.s within the same flash movie. ie. mousetracker.swf and barslide.swf. My problem lies in that when this movie is loaded, the mousetracker does not seem to work in conjunction with the barslide. I've played around with the action levels for the loaded movies, putting the mousetracker on a higher level...but this does not seem to make any difference. I'm wondering whether the two are incompatable?

what you might want to try is this if you dont require a button down or click type function. remember, you don't need a button to initiate a drag function

Start Drag ("/MouseTracker", L=#, T=#, R=#, B=#, lockcenter)
Set Variable: "dragY" = GetProperty ( "MouseTracker", _y )
Set Variable: "dragX" = GetProperty ( "MouseTracker", _X )
//if you need it to go left yto right use\\
Set Property ("/Slider", X Position) = dragX
//or if you need it to go up and down\\
Set Property ("/Slider", Y Position) = dragY

happy flashing

I was thinking did you put the commands for the mouse tracker and the slide menu in the movie that is set to drag. You can only have one movie set to drag at a time. If both the tracker and slide menu has seperate movie clips one will work and the other will not. Just a thought. Regards, Bill
