Lesson 8. Flash Site Architecture > Loading Movies into the Container Movie Cli...

Loading Movies into the Container Movie Clip

Your movie now has a container and the buttons, and it is ready to have external movies loaded into it. In this task, you will add the scripts that load the movies.

Be sure that you have copied sim_dsn.swf and sim_definesite.swf from Lesson08's Start folder of the CD into the same folder as the architecture.fla you are working on. Do not use the version of sim_dsn.swf you built in earlier lessons—it won't function correctly because some of the scripts were referenced to the _root, or main timeline. (Remember the line _root.error._visible=false;?) When movies are loaded into other movies, reference to the main timeline gets more complicated, because suddenly there are two possible candidates—the main timeline of the loaded movie, and the main timeline of the movie into which it is being loaded.
