You mean at runtime? Or the actually movieclip?

explain more, is this an action you want to be triggered? Or is it on a timeline you want this?
Or are you just working in flash and want to clear a movie clip? If so then just enter the movie clip, select everything inside and hit delete. Duh.
that would be pointless. it would be more efficient to create an empty movieclip, position it where your current, about to be cleared, clip is positioned, store it's name, remove your movieclip and assign the name to the empty movieclip.
Yeah once I played around with it more it did seem pretty pointless, Just creating a new movie clip was a lot easier. I was using the clip in a scrollpane and thought it would just be easier to clear it for new data instead of using a different movie clip (I didnt know how to change the movieclip that was displayed in the scrollpane at the time).
Im still a noob and just experimenting, thanks for all the responses
