    loading an external movie clip


      Hi team,

        Last time I wanted to load an external clip I could do it like this

      on (release) {








      So now I want to achieve exactly the same thing in AS3,

      I have been looking at examples on the web but am getting all sorts of errors and basically don't know what I am doing.  I also want to know how to navigate to .swf files in a file structure, as I have to build an old school fscommand file structure for a cd-rom.

      Any and all help greatly appreciated.

            Hey worked it out guys!


            var myLoader:Loader = new Loader();                     // create a new instance of the Loader class

            var url:URLRequest = new URLRequest("whatever.swf"); // in this case both SWFs are in the same folder

            myLoader.load(url);                                     // load the SWF file

            addChild(myLoader);                                     // add that instance to the display list, adding it to the Stage at 0,0


            But now I need to know.. How do I unload it?
