Hi, I've used LoadVars to load text and jpeg thumbnails into a textbox. This content is from an external text file. Is it possible to load an image into a specific MovieClip depending on the thumbnail that is clicked on the textbox. I know how to load this into a new html browser page, but I need it back in Flash. Pls. help.

textbox supports some HTML tags
open properties(Ctrl+F3) and click 'Render as HTML' for the textbox
if you are using action script to generate the textbox. Just use yourTextBox.html = true;

then, type the img src html like <img src='http://website/your.jpg' />
or type action script yourTextBox.htmlText = "<img src='http://website/your.jpg' />";

I know that, but is there a way to load that image back into a MovieClip in Flash for display?

You could use asfunction() to execute your custom loadMovie() function to load the selected image into the movieClip of your choice...
