Making a Screen load on top of another screen in MX 2004 - Macromedia Flash Actionscript

I have a mian form with several child screens underneath. I am trying to figure out how to make some sort of hierarchy for all of the sibling screens, such that the screens will layer on top of each other in some sort of predetermined way. Is there some way to do this? I have looked through the help files and can't find anything. thanks, Grady...

    Default Making a Screen load on top of another screen in MX 2004

    I have a mian form with several child screens underneath. I am trying to
    figure out how to make some sort of hierarchy for all of the sibling
    screens, such that the screens will layer on top of each other in some sort
    of predetermined way.

    Is there some way to do this? I have looked through the help files and
    can't find anything.


    thanks,

    Grady

    loadMovieNum("filename.swf", <levelnumber> );

    ->
    loadMovieNum("test1.swf", 5);
    loadMovieNum("test2.swf",2);
    test2 will be UNDEE test1

    Will this work with MX 2004 and the new Screen objects?

    If you use slides instead of forms, set the overlayChildren property of the parent screen
    in the hierarchary to be true (in the Parameters tab of the inspector for the screen).
    This will cause each subsequent child slide to load ontop of the others, much like
    sequential bullet items in a powerpoint presentation.
