well I've run into another problem, a problem concerning the playing of swfs that I've loaded into a containing movie clip on my base.swf. Now all the pages of this flash site(swfs) stop at a frame halfway through the timeline. So when the user views a different page the swf needs to play the rest of the timeline before loading in the next swf.
Now here I am thinking all I have to do is write some code and use container.play(); to play the swf but I am having no joy at all. Does as3 not allow this anymore? Do we have to select the swf as a child of the container and then play that?
Do you have a link to the flash file or can you post the code you're using? I've had better luck pulling in external swf via a loaderObject vs a movieclip, but if a little poking around with that doesn't work I can take a look at the code you've got so far.
