    MovieClip Behaviour

    shanealis
      Hi All,

      i want to know what is the difference b/w the symbol Movie clip and the MovieClip created by using Movieclip class.
      b/c when i want to unload movie from the symbol Movieclip created at designe time and it is on the stage , i have to
      use function like this for example, if movieclip instance name is "mc"
      unloadMovie(mc)

      unloadMovie(target:MovieClip) : Void // function prototype





      while if i create like this
      this.createEmptyMovieClip("box", 1);

      with (box) {
      lineStyle(1, 0xCCCCCC);
      beginFill(0x4827CF);
      moveTo(0, 0);
      lineTo(80, 0);
      lineTo(80, 60);
      lineTo(0, 60);
      lineTo(0, 0);
      endFill();
      }

      box.onRelease = function() {
      box.unloadMovie(); // i have use like this
      };

      can any explain the the reason of this where as both are Movieclips

      best regards

      shane
