    Hi Loz,

    Although you can communicate from one swf to another using
    localConnection.. (see some examples here on one of my webpages..
    http://members.cox.net/4my2dogs/flash/ ) that method is usually
    necessary when swfs are in separate parts of an html page mixed with
    other non-flash elements on the page. In your situation, you have all
    Flash, and all elements occupy the same screen space. I would highly
    recommend to you to re-design your site a little bit and have the
    separate safes loaded into different levels or depths. Then you can
    communicate between them and share data. Just bring into view the
    part that you need to look at. I think it's a better way to go.

    good luck,
    tralfaz

    Hi Tralfaz,

    I've got a 5 swf's that load into a html page. What would be the best way to redesign it? The slide show swf's are too large, but how can I divide them up,?

    Cheers Loz.

    I would load each swf into a different level and then make visible the
    one you want to see.
    First load all the swfs into levels..

    // main timeline code
    stop();
    loadMovieNum('shoppingCart.swf', 1); // level 1
    loadMovieNum('paintings.swf', 2); // level 2
    loadMovieNum('drawings.swf', 3); // level 3
    _level1._visible = false; // hide the shopping cart until we need it
    _level3_visible = false; // hide the drawings for now

    // (use preloaders too)

    // code for the drawings button
    on (release) {
    _level2._visible = false; // hide the paintings
    _level3._visible = true; // show the drawings
    }


    // code for the paintings button
    on (release) {
    _level3._visible = false; // hide the drawings
    _level2._visible = true; // show the paintings
    }

    This is all done in a base movie on _level0 same dimensions (or just a
    bit larger) that loads the others swfs and has buttons on it below or
    next to the loading area.

    Then to get the swf file sizes down I would load all the images
    externally with preloaders. The images can load in the background
    while a visitor is looking at other stuff. You could also just load
    as needed but then when someone clicks there would be a delay while
    loading.

    HTH
