This simple tutorial shows you how to load an external Swf into a "Holder_MovieClip" in your main movie. I have also added script for disabling the Load_btn when it is clicked until the unLoadMovie_btn is clicked. Then the loadMovie_btn is enabled again. The zip file is in mx 2004 format.You may download the source files and follow along.
Lets get started.
Create a folder called myLoadedMovie.
Open flash create a new document and save it as mainMovie.fla .
Open the components library (ctrl+f7) and drag an instance of the component button onto the stage. Give it the instanceName of "load_btn".
Open the library (f11) and drag another instance of the component button onto the stage and give it the instanceName or "unLoad_btn". ("Now this should all be on the first frame on layer 1".)
Make a new layer ,called "movieClip's" again make a new layer ,name it "Actions". ("Now you should have 3 layers on the main time line("_root")1 named btn's,1 named movieClip's,1 named actions".)
Ok ,now we should create a "Holder_movieClip that we will load the external swf into. On the toolBar click on the "Rectangle tool" and click and drag on the stage to make a square ,make it 250x250 pixels. You can set the size in the properties inspector.
Now select the square by clicking on the toolBar and selecting the "selection tool".
Now convert the square into a "MovieClip"and make sure the "Registration point" is at the top left corner ,name it "holder_mc". Click ok.
Now select the movieClip on the stage and give it the instanceName of "holder_mc".
