Possibly lame question...

Let's say I have 7 movieclips...named something like:

MovieClip1_mc
MoveClip2_mc
MovieClip3_mc
(etc)

Then I have a script that iterates from 1 to 10...  Let's say:

for (var f:Number=1; f<=10;f++){
  trace("Whatever");
}

As the script iterates up - I want to use that count number to reference the movieclip.

like..

movieclip[f].x = 500;

What is the proper syntax for referencing the movieclip in that loop?

You'd do something like this...

CyanBlue
var _mc:MovieClip;
for (var i:int = 1 ; i <= 10 ; i++)
{
   _mc = getChildByName("MovieClip" + i + "_mc");
   _mc.x = 500; 
}
