accessing parent(maintimeline) from child SWF

Recommended Posts

Hello I'm using SWFloader and LoaderMax to load 2 swf. One of these SWF needs access to a function from the maintimeline when user clicks. So, within the eventlistener handler function of child swf, I previously used:

 

(root.loaderInfo.loader.root as MovieClip).function();

 

This worked with AS3 loader class, but now it's null. Can I get this to work with SWFLoader and LoaderMax? If not, is there a way you recommend?

 

Thank you,

Nic

inside your child swf try:

 

var parentMovie:MovieClip = this.parent.root as MovieClip;
parentMovie.someFunction();

 

inside your parent movie use

 

function someFunction():void{
trace("it worked!");
}
