    [F8] Adding button behavior on the fly

    Hi all,
    Can anyone suggest the best way to approach the following?
    I currently am trying to load an array of movieclips (one on top of the other):
    createEmptyMovieClip("content_holder_mc", this.getNextHighestDepth());
    content_holder_mc._x = 21 
    content_holder_mc._y = 121
    for (var i = 0; i<return_query.length; i++) {
        content_holder_mc.attachMovie("blueMovie", "blue"+i, content_holder_mc.getNextHighestDepth(), {_y:content_holder_mc._height+5, _x:5+i});
    This all works fine however is there away of adding an onRelease method to the newly attached movieclips rather than adding the code inside the movieclip itself?

    There ceratainly is. When you use 'attachMovie', Flash returns a reference to the clip so that you can assign things to it:


    var newClip:MovieClip = content_holder_mc.attachMovie("blueMovie", "blue"+i, content_holder_mc.getNextHighestDepth(), {_y:content_holder_mc._height+5, _x:5+i});

    newClip.onRelease = function() {
    //your code here

    Hope this helps.
