    remove a movie clip from external movieclip

    Hi, what should I do if I want to remove a clip inside a external movieclip. In the external clip, I have a clip called "pic_mc". Inside that, I have a button called"close_btn". When I click it, I want to make pic_mc disappear.

    This is the script I wrote inside pic_mc

    close_btn.onPress = function(){
    _parent.pic_mc.removeMovieClip();
    }

    When I click on it, nth happens. Does anyone know what going on?

    It won't work

    Hi

    removeMovieClip() will only remove a movie clip instance created with:
    1. duplicateMovieClip()
    2. MovieClip.duplicateMovieClip()
    3. MovieClip.createEmptyMovieClip()
    4. MovieClip.attachMovie()


    Rather leave your MC 'pic_mc' in the library and assign it the instance name 'pic_mc' in linkage. Then, use attachMovie() to add it to the stage and use removeMovieClip() to remove it with your button.

    Thank you very much. I change to attached movie first. it seems not working.

    Can anyone give me a hand?

    here is the following I use to attached the movie on the first frame

    attachMovie("3346456456", "pic_mc", this.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:0, _y:-5})

    Here you go. Look at my code and the symbols in the library.

    Your code is just written wrong:
    attachMovie("3346456456", "pic_mc", this.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:0, _y:-5})

    should read:
    attachMovie("pic_mc", "3346456456", this.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:0, _y:-5})

    where '3346456456' is the MovieClip you are attaching 'pic_mc' to.

    thanks, that work

    I have got 1 more question.

    When I put that by x, y method to position I used before by drag and drop the movieclip, I only see the bottom right part of the clip. so I think Flash measure from the middle of the clip.

    How to do if I want to attach the movieclip by the topleft side rather than the middle of the clip?

    You have given me a right direction, man

    All I did was center my content in the clip (pic_mc).

    Just open pic_mc and realign everything to 0,0 i.e. to the right of and below the center marker.
