    load swf and go to specific frame

    Hello.

    I am trying to load a swf from my main movie and go to a specific frame/label within that movie. I am just using Flash MX and am using the basic command:

    loadMovieNum("PA_work.swf", 1);

    Is this possible? Thank You!!

    You need to set a variable when you call the other movie, then in that movie, you need cod to read the variable and if the condition is met, go to and play that frame;

    _root.whatFrame = "thisOne";
    loadMovieNum("PA_work.swf", 1);

    In the loaded movie on frame one;

    if(_root.whatFrame == "thisOne"){
    this.gotoAndPlay("framelabelName");
    }

    Nah! _root won't cut it in this case my friend! The movie is loaded on another level!

    Bwalkley, I'll PM you a link to some .flas. The movie is loaded in a container clip though... You would have to adapt it, but the code would basically be the same.

    Regards.

    OK, use _global

    _global.whatFrame = "thisOne";
    loadMovieNum("PA_work.swf", 1);

    In the loaded movie on frame one;

    if(_global.whatFrame == "thisOne"){
    this.gotoAndPlay("framelabelName");
    }
