Zoom into a movie

Hi there,

I am currently trying to create a function that zooms into a movie clip when you click on it. The movie clip is entitled 'container'. I am having a real headache trying to come up with the code to do this, although I do have an idea of how to do it. I'm offering all the points that I have to solve this one, or at least put me on track. Any help is much appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

These are three different codes to try. Assign them (one at a time) to the movieclip, then click on it:

//=============== FIRST CODE ======================
onClipEvent(mouseDown){
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse)){
            this._xscale = this._yscale = 300;
      }
}
onClipEvent(mouseUp){
      this._xscale = this._yscale = 100;
}


//=============== SECOND CODE =====================
onClipEvent(load){
      this.frame = 5;
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(mouseDown){
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse)){
            this.endscale = 300;
      }
}
onClipEvent(mouseUp){
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
      this._xscale += (this.endscale - this._xscale) / 3;
      this._yscale = this._xscale;
}


//=============== THIRD CODE ======================
onClipEvent(load){
      this.acc = 1.8;
      this.ine = 1.5;
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(mouseDown){
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse)){
            this.endscale = 300;
      }
}
onClipEvent(mouseUp){
      this.endscale = 100;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
      this.dx = (this.dx + (this.endscale - this._xscale) / this.acc) / this.ine;
      this._xscale += this.dx;
      this._yscale = this._xscale;
}
