you can create duplicates (using a string for the name) but you can't reparent using as2 with attachMovie or otherwise.
Thanks but I don't need to reparent the duplicate movieclips, I want to be able to duplicate the movieclips within the same original movieclip.
Original movieclip is C2. resides in _root.movieC1.movieC2
Duplicates to be created are clip0 and clip1 inside _root.movieC1.movieC2
Any suggestions how I can achieve my requirement?
again, you can't reparent a duplicated movieclip. your duplicate will have a parent that is the timeline that contains the duplicateMovieClip code.
so, you could use code in _root.movieC1.movieC2;
Great as always! thanks.
