Thanks for the reply! That thread was very informative, especially in understanding the difference between actual content dimensions (height, width as reported) vs. the original intended dimensions (which are stage.stageHeight and stage.stageWidth... as authored... not as loaded).
However, even if I'm able to get the intended height and width... through having to set some additional explicit properties in the document class of the external SWF, or what not... I'm still not clear as to how I make the Loader SWF use those dimensions.
It seems like it wants to use whatever it was authored at.
My fundamental problem is that I don't know the dimensions of the Loaded SWF ahead of time... so I obviously can't set the Loader to be those dimensions ahead of time.
And, depending on what it loads, it's going to get different dimensions.
I was hoping I could just set the Loader to 1x1 pixels... and that it would expand to whatever was needed by the Loaded SWF... (or it could expand to whatever dimensions I tell it to expand to)... but I'm not having any luck here.
Any assistance is much appreciated!
