I want to make an image viewer where the user clicks a button to create an empty movie clip which will automatically load a jpg from the library. It will also hav a button which will always remove the movie clip when pressed.

Is this possible? if so any help will be greatly apreciated!

First you have to assign a linkage identifier to the picture you want to be able to load dynamically; to do so, do this:

1. On the library, right click on the file you want to load dynamically.
2. Click on linkage.
3. On the checkboxes below, tick the Export for ActionScript checkbox, and it will automatically tick Export in first frame and it will also enable the Identifier textbox.
4. On the Identifier textbox enter whatever text you want to use to identify the picture. (For now just use "myPictureIdentifier" without the quotes).
5. Click ok.

Now, assuming you have a button named "myButton", add this code on the main timeline:

<code snippet>

Good luck.

-V
myButton.onRelease = function() {
      import flash.display.BitmapData;
      var bitmap:BitmapData = BitmapData.loadBitmap("myPictureIdentifier");
      this._parent.createEmptyMovieClip("myBitmap", this.getNextHighestDepth(),{_x:30,_y:30});
      this._parent.myBitmap.attachBitmap(bitmap, 2, "auto", true);      
}
 
myRemoveButton.onRelease = function() {
      removeMovieClip(this._parent.myBitmap);
}

Open in new window
