    Help with attachMovie()

    Hey guys,

    Ok I have this code
    Code:
    thumbCount = 10;
    row = 1;
    for (var k = 1; k <= this.thumbCount; k++, row++) {
    	this.attachMovie("thumb","thumb" + k, k);
    	clip = this["thumb" + k].thumb.temp.thumbholder;
    	clip.loadMovie("images/"+ k + ".jpg");
    	this["thumb" + k]._x = row * 71;
    	this["thumb" + k]._y = 175;
    }
    //
    Now the question is how do I get the following script to attach to each instance of the generated movieclips.
    Code:
    //
    on(rollOver){
    this.thumb.gotoAndPlay("in");
    }
    on(release, releaseOutside){
    loadMovie("images/" + k + ".jpg",_root.empty);
    }
    //
    As you can see Im trying to generate 10 thumbnails that when clicked open the corresponding picture.

    Is there a better way?

    Thanks In advance

    Code:
     this["thumb" + k].onRelease = function()
     {
    	// Needed code here
     }
    And the same way with onRollOver & onRollOut... using this keyword inside of these functions you can refer to the button you're working with. So it is possible to track image downloading progress and so on.


    Never give up...

    code:

    //add this code so it runs the entire time
    for(i = 1;i <= this.thumbCount;i++) {
    this["thumb" + i].onRollOver = function() {
    this["thumb"+ i].thumb.gotoAndPlay("in");
    }
    this["thumb" + i].onRelease = this["thumb" + i].onReleaseOutside = function() {
    loadMovie("images/" + i + ".jpg",_root.empty);
    }
    }


    hope it works
    So tired of all the fighting....

    I tried both of these methods, however all the links are looking for "11.jpg" so somewhere in the code its not posting the initial variable number from when it was created.
    hmmm.....

    I figured it out for those of you who helped and are curious

    this is on the first frame of the movie
    Code:
    thumbCount = 10;
    row = 1;
    for (var k = 1; k <= this.thumbCount; k++, row++) {
    	this.attachMovie("thumb","thumb" + k, k);
    	clip = this["thumb" + k].thumb.temp.thumbholder;
    	clip.loadMovie("images/"+ k + ".jpg");
    	this["thumb" + k]._x = row * 71;
    	this["thumb" + k]._y = 175;
    	this["thumb" + k].thumb.image = k;
    	}
    this is inside the duplicated MC in the first frame

    Code:
    image = "";
    this is on the button in the MC

    Code:
    on(rollOver){
    	this.gotoAndPlay("in");
    }
    on(release){
    	loadMovie("images/"+image+".jpg",_root.empty);
    }
    Thanks for all your help
