you need to create an empty Movieclip , using the following code you will use createEmptyMovieclip to create one during run time and naming it content_box the 200 is the depth usually we use this.getNextHighestDepth()); to get the next available depth ...
then position the emptyclip's X and Y coordinates ...

now the Coordinates in flash differs , its the opposite ...

Code: [ Select ]
createEmptyMovieClip("content_box", 200);
content_box._x = 195;
content_box._y = 92;
  1. createEmptyMovieClip("content_box", 200);
  2. content_box._x = 195;
  3. content_box._y = 92;

not done yet ,

Now we use the loadMovie to load your external swf , you can as well load images during run time ...
using the content_box we created earlier , this is how its done :

Code: [ Select ]

You can as well use another way than loadMovie which is the Moviecliploader class , but u dont want 2 confuse your self

Use the first method i told u about first then try the moviecliploader class ..

good luck :)
