In actionscript, you cannot reference a movie until it is loaded. Code to work around that (for loadmovienum):

function preloadLevel() {    if (_level5 != undefined) {        trace("level 5 loaded");        delete this.onEnterFrame;    }}_root.onEnterFrame = preloadLevel;

loadMovieNum("external.swf", 5); // load something into level 5

Code for XML:// Create new XML object

SP_XML = new XML();

SP_XML.ignoreWhite = true;// load the XML data - the gate will take care of the// location_id, all that jazz.//SP_XML.load(“/acc/link/loc/view/sp/xml/”);

SP_XML.load(“/main/swf/sample_space_plan.xml”);// Render the space plan - load the SWF movies and// arrange them as necessary.//SP_XML.onLoad = renderSpacePlan;

SP_XML.onLoad = function(success:Boolean) { if (success) { space_plan_id = this.firstChild.attributes.id; trace(“id”+space_plan_id); // Set array SpEquipment to the equipment arrays. SpEquipment = this.firstChild.childNodes; //loadMovieNum(“/acc/link/loc/sp_server/&location_space_plan_id=”+space_plan_id, 0); //loadMovieNum(“/acc/link/types/symbol_server/&equipment_type_symbol_id=3”,2); for (var i = 0; i<SpEquipment.length; i++) { asset_x = SpEquipment[i].attributes.x; asset_y = SpEquipment[i].attributes.y; asset_type_id = SpEquipment[i].attributes.asset_type; j=i+2; //_root.createEmptyMovieClip(“eqp”+j, j); _root.eqp.duplicateMovieClip(“eqp”+j, j); _root[“eqp”+j]._onClic _root[“eqp”+j]._x = asset_x; _root[“eqp”+j]._y = asset_y; _root[“eqp”+j].loadMovie(“/acc/link/types/symbol_server/&equipment_type_symbol_id=” + asset_type_id); //_root[“eqp”+j].loadMovie(“/main/swf/kiosk.swf”); } } else { trace(“xml failed to load.”); }};_root.eqp.onLoad = function(success:Boolean) { if (success) { duplicateMovieClip(_root.eqp, “eqp2”, 3); _root.eqp2._x = 65; }};// this sucks

function preloadLevel() { //Assuming a loop needs to be run here to evaluate each level load status! //Definitely want a “Now constructing the space plan… please stand by screen.” if (_level2 != undefined) { _level2._x = 150; _level2._y = 125; _level2._rotation = 45; newclip = duplicateMovieClip(_level2, blah, 33); newclip._x = 45; delete this.onEnterFrame; }}_root.onEnterFrame = preloadLevel;</pre>
