I get this question on the boards a lot, so thought i’d write it up…

Q. How do I do (whatever) in the [sic]_root from a loaded swf?
A. Use the built-in event management system. Loader objects can have listeners applied directly to them, that will listen for events dispatched in any of it’s children – including loaded content.

in loadee.swf…

I used simple string event-types here for simplicity and brevity; best-practice would be to use custom event classes and instances.
