    AS3 - Still unable to duplicate loaded SWF files?

    wdrudolph Level 1
      I can't find a clear answer to this in Live Docs.. or at any forums around the net...
      I know you couldn't do it in AS2 - but I've found not information about AS3...

      Is there a way in AS3 that you can duplicate a loaded SWF file?

      Every time I try (in about 3 different ways now I've tried it by either -
      - duplicating the MovieClip itself
      - duplicating the loader.content into different MovieClips
      - duplicating the display object itself

      The programming always removes the old instance - and places it into the new one.

      Is there a way? If so - I'm really looking for the code as to how...
      Thanks in advance.
