    Remove attached movieclip in reverse order of placement

    ScottLuker

      Is it possible in AS2 to remove an attached movieclip instance in reverse order? I want to give the user the ability to click an erase button and remove the most recent instance of an attached movie. I have tried .swapDepths and getting inconsistent results. Here is what I have:

       

      this.onMouseDown = function(){
      var drawdot:MovieClip;

       

      drawdot = this.attachMovie("dot", "dot_mc", this.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:_xmouse, _y:_ymouse});

       

      var nextdepth = this.getNextHighestDepth();
      trace (nextdepth);
      }

       

      clear_btn.onPress = function() {

      dot_mc.swapDepths(100000)

      removeMovieClip(dot_mc);

       

      }
      }

       

      Thanks for your time.
