Hey there,

I'm trying to create an Active menu in Shockwave that controls HTML and can be controlled by other Flash Movies on other frames of the same HTML page.

The menu must be customisable in full. Its gotta be told how many buttons, their labels, whether they are enabled and the HREF locations for each (the last three can be done by Loading variables from text files and I have done it already).

The problem I have is that you can't instantiate movie clips. I have a MC that contains a button and a label that you can create instances of (say 5) and then populate with a text file. Unfortunately ActionScript can only make one copy of a Movie Clip at runtime.

Does anyone know how I can create x of my buttons at runtime?

Please help!
