Flash 8 comboBox dropdown issue

While working with an interactivity which consisted of Flash 8 comboBox component – I am across an unusual problem. While the stand-alone SWF file worked fine – but when this SWF was externally loaded into another SWF file – the comboBox dropdown menu did not show-up when the comboBox down arrow button was clicked.

The solution to fix this problem is to set _lockroot = true on the frame where the comboBox has been placed.
