Flash Player 4. Flash 4 files opened in Flash 5 or later are converted to use the correct syntax.
loadMovieNum("url",level [, variables])
url The absolute or relative URL of the SWF or JPEG file to be loaded. A relative path must be relative to the SWF file at level 0. For use in the stand-alone Flash Player or for testing in test-movie mode in the Flash authoring application, all SWF files must be stored in the same folder; and the filenames cannot include folder or disk drive specifications.
level An integer specifying the level in Flash Player into which the SWF file will be loaded.
variables An optional parameter specifying an HTTP method for sending variables. The parameter must be the string GET or POST. If there are no variables to be sent, omit this parameter. The GET method appends the variables to the end of the URL and is used for small numbers of variables. The POST method sends the variables in a separate HTTP header and is used for long strings of variables.
Function; loads a SWF or JPEG file into a level in Flash Player while the originally loaded SWF file is playing.
Tip: If you want to monitor the progress of the download, use MovieClipLoader.loadClip() instead of this function.
Normally, Flash Player displays a single SWF file and then closes. The loadMovieNum() action lets you display several SWF files at once and switch between SWF files without loading another HTML document.
If you want to specify a target instead of a level, use loadMovie() instead of loadMovieNum().
Flash Player has a stacking order of levels starting with level 0. These levels are like layers of acetate; they are transparent except for the objects on each level. When you use loadMovieNum(), you must specify a level in Flash Player into which the SWF file will load. When a SWF file is loaded into a level, you can use the syntax, _levelN, where N is the level number, to target the SWF file.
When you load a SWF file, you can specify any level number and you can load SWF files into a level that already has a SWF file loaded into it. If you do, the new SWF file will replace the existing SWF file. If you load a SWF file into level 0, every level in Flash Player is unloaded, and level 0 is replaced with the new file. The SWF file in level 0 sets the frame rate, background color, and frame size for all other loaded SWF files.
The loadMovieNum() action also allows you to load JPEG files into a SWF file while it plays. For both images and SWF files, the upper left corner of the image aligns with the upper left corner of the Stage when the file loads. Also in both cases, the loaded file inherits rotation and scaling, and the original content is overwritten.
Use unloadMovieNum() to remove SWF files or images that were loaded with loadMovieNum().
This example loads the JPEG image image45.jpg into level 2 of Flash Player.
