    flash website (actionscript)

    So basicaly I'm making a website..and I'm trying to load an SWF onto the page. Problem is nothing appears...I don't know if it's a coding error or if I'm just missing something.

    (actionscript 2.0)

    //heres the code that I got attempting to load the welcomepage.swf nothing appears when I preview my work. The welcome page should load automatically....or when I click...but nothing happens.

    loadMovie("welcomepage.swf", blankmc);
    targety = 85.5;
    onEnterFrame = function () {
    indicator._y += (targety-indicator._y)/5;

    //for scrolling & loading content
    welcomebtn.onPress = function() {
    targety = 85.5;

    Well first get a .swf that works perfectly on your local machine. "loadMovie" is internal to the .swf and has nothing to do with a Web page. Make sure there are no problems with the .swf. After that, embed the .swf into an HTML page. With a good .swf your HTML will look something like this:

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="800" height="600" id="index" align="middle">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="movie" value="index.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><embed src="index.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="800" height="600" name="index" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

    None of this has anything to do with ActionScript.
    Re-check your ActionScript to make sure it works without putting it on a page. It looks pretty jumbled to me.
    Then when you are really ready to load a good .swf unto your page, use swfoject.js or something like that to eliminate the "Click to use control" dialog box.
