There are some movie clip instances on the stage (not
dynamically created at run time). Now, I want to do this:
use a variable to hold a instance name at runtime. then use
this variable to reference the movie clip it points to.
Problem: suppose this variable is named "mc_ref". it fails to
use "_root.mc_ref" to refer to the movie clip by the name that
mc_ref contains. it seems in this case flash takes "mc_ref" as
instance name and thus looks for any child by that name. since
mc_ref itself is not a name, this will not work.
is there something like MovieClipbyInstanceName function for
this? Any thoughts? Thanks!
