Dear Experts,

 I am currently using loadmovie() to show a jpg image in my project. I have 4 buttons in my project. Each button loads a jpg file into the movie. My problem is that for some reason I have to click on the button twice to get it to load the new jpg. When I click the first time the original jpg disappears. When I click again, the new jpg loads. What am I doing wrong?

Hi, where are you loading your jpegs into?

if you want to load into an empty movieclip (in this case with instance name called "holder");

on (press) {
      loadMovie("goblin.jpg","holder");
}

on (press) {
    unloadMovie "original.jpg");
    loadMovieNum ("newjpg");
}


this will do in one click.
or if can show your code it will be of more help.
