I have the following code where I'm trying to add an onRelease event to a dynamically created movieclip, but it's not working at all.  Any ideas what I'm missing please?
function test($parsedObject:Object):Void {
 
  	for (i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
		mcName = this.createEmptyMovieClip("square_mc"+i, this.getNextHighestDepth());
		mcName._x = 10;
		mcName._y = 1 + (i * 50);
		mcName.onRelease = function() {
			trace("FOO");
		}		
		mcName.loadMovie(partner[i].ICON_URL[0].value);
   	}
	
}

You basically have to 'wait' until the image is fully loaded so that you can do anything with it such as making it to be 50% transparent or making it to be clickable...  You can either add in a loop to check if the file is fully loaded, or use MovieClipLoader.loadClip()/onLoadComplete instead of the loadMovie() function...

You might want to check on this page to learn more about the MovieClipLoader class if you are not familiar with it...

function test($parsedObject:Object):Void {
	myMCL = new MovieClipLoader();
	myListener = new Object();
	myListener.onLoadComplete = function(targetMC)
	{
		targetMC.onPress = function()
		{
			trace("FOO");
		}
	}
	myMCL.addListener(myListener);
	
	for (i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
		mcName = this.createEmptyMovieClip("square_mc"+i, this.getNextHighestDepth());
		mcName._x = 10;
		mcName._y = 1 + (i * 50);
		myMCL.loadClip(partner[i].ICON_URL[0].value, mcName);
	}
}
