load image into flash from html text box that is loaded from an external text file

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.

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

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' />";
