    I see some sites where people have a flash movie and when I click a button, it opens a new movie on top of the other movie in the same browser window.

    I thought to using Load/Unload movie, but that didn't seem to help me that much.

    Thank you for your help

    Good question, the guys at flashkit just helped me last night with this exact question. Here's how to do it:

    -Create a movie clip, within the scene your working with
    -Name the movie clip 'test'
    -In that movie clip give the first keyframe a stop action only.
    -In the second frame (and onwards) have your animation that you want to have appear when the user clicks a button.
    -put a stop command in the last frame of your 'test' movie clip


    -Return to your scene and drag the movie clip you just created to where you want it to appear when the user clicks whatever button you want.
    -double click on the movie clip you just dragged onto the stage, give it an instance name of 'testpop'
    -now go to your button, and give it the following action

    On (Release)
    Begin Tell Target ("/testpop")
    Go to and Play (2)
    End Tell Target
    End On

    That should work for you.
