I am using a carousel with items in it. When the user clicks an item in the carousel, I want a new swf to load to _level0 and replace the carousel on the stage. The new swf reads an xml, however the xml should be different for every item on the carousel.

Is there any way to pass the xml file name to the loadMovie command so the new swf can use it?

How about having each of the items in the carousel loading its own XML file in their own timeline, frame 1 (which by the way you can also make dynamic by loading a main xml file which would tell the items of the carousel where their corresponding xml file is)...?

Makes sense?
