btnClicked.loadMovie("C:\folder1\folder2\folder3\movie.swf");

You need to take out the "1" altogether...it's supposed to be either "GET" or "POST" if you do use it, but you don't need it in this case.

btnClicked is the name of your button, or where you want the movie to be loaded.

Excuse me...I made a slight mistake: the third parameter is the method, where it would be "GET" or "POST"

The second parameter, where you have "1" should be the name of the movie clip you want to load into. You do leave the quotations on, although I'm not sure they're required.

loadMovie("C:\folder1\folder2\folder3\movie.swf","btnClicked");

hi...... none of the suggestions  worked.

what i want >>

 i want  a small button . As soon as the user click on the  button it will be replaced by a JPG image.

what i did >> 

i first made my JPG image a movie (static movie ) having .swf extension. then i tried to load this .swf movie as the button click action.

can you tell why it is not working ?



The sucess i have got till now >>

 i have been able to get the button correctly bcoz as i am rolling mouse its color changing  for 'over' ,'on' and  'down' conditions but as soon as i click on the button nothing is happening .....why ? whats wrong ?

N.B > actually , this button will be highlighted on a map...as soon as you click on the button it would be replaced by a separate JPG image ...thats what i am trying to do.

in fact its just map zooming by selecting individual city(buttons) using individual maps ( JPG images ).

plz help
thanks

Looks like you're trying to add the actions onto a movie clip. You need to put an on handler around your code, such as:
on(release){
     //code goes here
}

or you can just put it on a frame and it'll run when it reaches the frame.
