    a newbish question - unloading movieclips

    sol_martin
      I know this is very basic stuff, but I'm at a loss.

      If I have movies loaded on from the main timeline, what is the easiest way to remove them using buttons on other depths?

      ex:
      main timeline has topNav static, and calls:
      bottomNav(25)

      I want bottomNav to disappear when clicking any of the links in topNav

      also, there's a depth where I have to load a movieClip, and then one above it that sits overtop.
      availabilityNS (1)
      there are two buttons:
      nsRestaurants (1) *
      nsLiquor(1) *

      *(because it's on a depth inside a movie, it works)

      when I click on nsRestaurants or nsLiquor, I want their pages to appear (we'll call them pg1 and pg2 right now), and have the buttons and the availabilityNS depth to disappear.

      Like I say, it's probably very easy, I just don't know it yet. I hope someone can help - I know you have so far.

      Thanks a lot!

          i'm not sure i completely understood you, but how about
          'bottomNav.removeMovieClip()'?
          however, pay attention that it'll work only if you place 'bottomNav' on the
          stage using code (createEmptyMovieClip, attachMovie, duplicateMovie).
