I have dynamically created a movieClip and would want to put it into a scrollPane object?
Here is the code i have written

m_oScrollPane =_root.createClassObject(ScrollPane, m_mcParent+"oScrollPane", _root.getNextHighestDepth());
m_oScrollPane.setSize(420,100);
m_oScrollPane._x = 0;
m_oScrollPane._y = 400;

Here i have created a Movie Clip m_mcCheckList dynamically through code
Now i want to attavh it to the scrollPane object
If i use m_oScrollPane.contentPath = "m_mcCheckList"

i get the following error
Error opening URL "file:///D|/Experios/Script%20Files/Science%20Slueths/m_mcCheckList"

Please help me attach this dynamically created movie clip to hte scroll pane
It is very urgent
Thanks in advance.

hi,

there are only 3 things that you can attach to a scroll pane ... is an external JPG,  an external SWF and a movie clip from the library ...
that means that the movie clip has to be in the library, you can't attach an instance of a movie ...

now, a workaround for you would be to have in the library a container-like movie clip with linkage ... you attach this container movie to your scrollpane ... and you create dynamic movies inside the container ...

Thanks
I have added a movie clip in library named test
Now i do m_oScrollPane.contentPath = "test"

and i get an instance of movie clip named var mcScroll:MovieClip = m_oScrollPane.content;

Now i create all the other movie clips in the mcScroll Movie Clip and it works

Thanks once again for the answer
