load movie question - Macromedia Flash Actionscript

Hi, I have a simple but yet not acheiveable (by me so far :( ): I have an empty movieclip holder on the stage called swf and I loaded in an external ppt.swf into it. Then I tell it to go to frame 2: swf.loadmovie("ppt.swf"); swf.gotoAndStop(2); How come swf never goes to frame 2 like I instructed? I do not want to use a button to fire the goto command. Please help me as I m pulling all my hairs out now! cheers ronng...

    Default load movie question

    Hi,

    I have a simple but yet not acheiveable (by me so far :( ):

    I have an empty movieclip holder on the stage called swf and I loaded in an external ppt.swf into it. Then I tell it to go to frame 2:

    swf.loadmovie("ppt.swf");
    swf.gotoAndStop(2);

    How come swf never goes to frame 2 like I instructed? I do not want to use a button to fire the goto command. Please help me as I m pulling all my hairs out now!

    cheers

    Hi Rong

    you mut give enough time for loading "ppt.swf". What is hapenning is that
    when you do "swf.gotoAndStop(2);" frame 2 of "swf" is not loaded yet!
    Substitute your code by this:

    swf.loadmovie("ppt.swf");
    _root.loadingPPT = true;

    and add this enterframe event:

    this.onEnterFrame = function()
    {
    if(_root.loadingPPT == true)
    if(swf._framesloaded == swf._totalFrames) {
    _root.loadingPPT = false;
    swf.gotoAndStop(2);
    }
    }

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Carlos
