I've been developing a site for work and I'm in the no man's land between ActionScripting everything and using the Flash timeline simply and sensibly - I'm having the following problem:
The site is basically a photogallery - click a navigation-menu button and a text box and a background image fade in. Behind the scenes on every MOUSE_UP, the previous screen's children are removed.
On the "Contact" screen, I've added a movie-clip button that brings up a map screen. When the map screen fades in, the text box from the contact screen remains in front of it, "unremoved." Is this a function of the fact that this is a nested movie?
Here's the child-removing function I put together:
if ( numChildren > 0)
removeChildAt( 0 );
trace("prev. screen removed");
