    Link from "loaded" flash movie to parent flash movie

    Hey guys. I'm sure this is a pretty simple question. I just don't use Flash that much and I'm not to up on its techniques.

    I have a flash movie. Within that movie, on the first frame, it loads another flash movie into a loader component. What I'm hoping to be able to do is create a link in the second movie (in the loader) that links to a frame label in the first (parent) movie. When clicked, it would take the visitor to the appropriate position within the main movie.

    Anyone know if (a) this is possible, and (b) the best way to pull it off?

    Thanks in advance for the help. It's greatly appreciated!

    a) yes
    b) I'm guessing you are using AS2, but in the loaded SWF your links back to the parent can be prefaced with _parent

    Let me know, or show some code for a better explanation.
