    Chcking for the existance of a movie clip by its instance name

    jamiemac2005 Level 1
      hey, i'm working on some as2 stuff and in one function i have used

      _root.attachMovie("box_mc", "box"+boxCount, _root.getNextHighestDepth());

      To attach a few boxes on the stage(expecting 100+)...

      what i want to do now (from a different function) is check to see if a box exists from the string of its instance name e.g. ifMovieClipExists("box3");

      is there a function that will do this?
