    unloading UILoader

    In Flash CS5, I am using the UILoader Component. I am setting the source to a swf that is tracing a number on ENTER_FRAME. When I unload() the UILoader it continues to trace the number every frame!!! How do I properly unload the swf?

    Thanks,
    Jake

    Try the close() function.

    Thanks for the response... but I get this error:
    Error #2029: This URLStream object does not have a stream opened.

    I'm getting the feeling there is no way to completely remove a swf from within a swf unless you close flash player completely. This might work using some sort of "restartFlashPlayer()" method along with a Shared Object... but there is no restartFlashPlayer() method.

    Try the regular Loader object instead of the component. When you unload you can use the unloadAndStop() function. Alternatively load a foo movie into the UILoader, which should replace the former movie.
