Hi Experts,

I am new to flash. I am using action script 3.0

I have many movie clips in my .fla library.

If I wanted to open and modify any of the movie clip how do I modify movie clip present in library and see action scripts present in that library

I have full code available and  I am sure the movie clip I am discussing is not third party movie. Its created by us and used in frames in .fla

Please guide

Many Thanks

Hi your question is a bit vague.
In most cases, in AS3 - you would not have actual code present in a movieclip.
have a look in the library - you'll see there's a column there called AS Linkage.
does the movieclip you're trying to modify have something there?
if yes,  right click that linkage name, and go to properties.
There you should see a class linkage with a little pencil icon, that should open the class file for that movieclip.
you'll be able to edit the actions there.

if not, and there are frames inside the movieclip, if you double click the movieclip in the library to open it, you'll see if any of the keyframes have actions inside it.
