ActionScript 3.0 :: Remove Items From Stage Using RemoveChild?

So, I have a file where I've added 27 movie clips to the stage using a for loop to cycle through items in an XML document. Here's the pertinent part of the code I'm using, it's AS3:

So, I end up with 27 instances of mini_mc, each named 0, 1, 2, 3, etc.

I'm trying to write code to remove them at a certain point in the movie but having problems. Here's what I'm using[code]...

ActionScript 3.0 :: Remove Loaders From Stage With RemoveChild
I have a parent swf that loads in 6 little swfs. However, I have a button which should remove the loaders from the stage, no matter which one it is from the 6. At the moment I can only remove one of them because of the way I have coded the application. So, when I click on the button which is supposed to remove whatever loader is currently sitting on top of my parent movie, it only removes one of the loaders - the one which is named first under my resetAssets function.

I can not have:

Because only one of them is being displayed at the time and flash goes like "hey dude! where are the others you want me to remove then!?" I suppose the whole code has been built up poorly and I should loop the swfs through one loader instead of having a loader for each swf.. Then I could just remove the loader no matter what sits in there..?

import flash.filters.*;
import flash.display.Loader;
import flash.display.Sprite;
var ldr:Loader = new Loader();
var req:URLRequest = new URLRequest("load_XML.swf");
[Code] .....

ActionScript 3.0 :: RemoveChild (myArray) - Remove Movie Clips From The Stage?
I'm currently working on a script which depending on various factors will add different movie clips to the stage. When the factors change so do the movie clips. I know that I can use removeChild(myMC); 100 times and wipe the stage, so I was thinking it would be possible to add all the movie clips to an array and use removeChild(myArray); to get rid of them but I'm coming up with the compiler error: Code: 1067: Implicit coercion of a value of type Array to an unrelated type flash.display:DisplayObject. so obviously I'm missing something. Is this even possible? is there a more effective way to remove Movie Clips from the stage?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Properly Remove Items From Stage?
In actionscript 2 if you wanted items on the stage to not appear to the user you would just use the onclipevent(load) and then move them, alpha them and so on. In as 3 I cannot figure out how to get the items off of the stage before the stage renders them. There's always a flash of the stage items and then they disappear. What should I use? I don't like the addChild method because it's impossible to design a site that way. I like all my items on the stage and then go from there...

ActionScript 3.0 :: RemoveChild - Load A Movie To The Stage And Wipe Out What Was On The Stage?
I have 4 movies that need to be loaded in sequence. The first movie loads the second one, the second one loads the third, then the third one loads the fourth. What I can't figure out is how to make sure there's only one movie loaded at any time. I've tried removeChildAt(0) and other methods. What's the best way to load a movie to the stage and wipe out what was on the stage?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Remove Preloader By RemoveChild
My code below loads my preloader dynamically before an image is loaded into the file and when it finishes I want to remove my preloader by the removeChild(); method. Whenever I try to add removeChild(); in my code my file either does not work or I get an error #2025 must be a child of the caller. Where would my code go for the removeChild to work and not have a conflict. I know I probably need some removeEventListeners as well at the bottom: My .fla file is attached it works but I just need to remove the preloader in my code after it loads my image.[code]

Professional :: Does RemoveChild Remove The Object's Event Listeners
If you dynamically create a parent movieclip, and dynamically add a color picker to each clip, and add an event listener for each color picker, does a removeChild on the parent movieClip remove event listeners belonging to any of it's children?

Actionscript 3 :: Remove MC From Dynamic Path Reference With RemoveChild?
I'm not even sure if the title reflects what I want to do. Here's backstory. I have a movieclip with 5 'holder' movieclips in them. They are my containers for dynamically added movieclips. The parent containers has an instance name of pyramid, the holder instance names are labeled after the 6 food groups, i.e., 'grainholder', 'fruitholder', 'vegetableholder', etc etc...The holders are within the pyramid container, instance names as above, and the pyramid container is added to the display list. I have a addFoodToPyramid() function which adds 'foodMC' mc's to their respective holders. So an [object Apple] will be dynamically added by way of pyramid.fruitholder.addChild(Apple). The function also adds a listener. Heres the call and the function:The call (I will use grains as example) is this:

addFoodToPyramid(grainArray, grainHolder, grainCounter);
And the function is:
function addFoodToPyramid(thisArray:Array, thisHolder:MovieClip, thisCounter:Number):void

Actionscript 3 :: Is RemoveChild Enough To Completely Remove A Movieclip From Flash Player Memory
Will this line


completely remove the child of clip at 0 index? I read somewhere you should set to null to all the references to that clip, but I have no other reference in my code. The clip at 0 was added via a regular addChild().

ActionScript 3.0 :: Accessing Stage Items, Through A SWF File Which Is Loaded Inside The Stage
- I have A.fla.

- A.fla includes buttons, movie clips and also B.swf is loaded in A.fla using a LOADER

- i want to access elements in A.fla, from the actionscript codes inside B.fla to modify those movie clips and buttons based on actions going on in B.swf

for instance, lets say there is a button X in A.fla, and there is a button Y in B.fla, B.swf is loaded into A.fla, and I want the button Y to erase button X when clicked.

general question: accessing elements in a stage, through a SWF file loaded into that stage.

How To Remove Unused Items From Library?
Flash CS4 is really good for design and development point of view. But I noticed two things:If library have more item then there is no option on right click "Select Unused Items". How can I get this option "Select Unused Items" on right Click while library have a more items with scrollbar?Some times the actions window's height increased. At this time there is no option to decrease the height of actions window except the Reset option.

ActionScript 3.0 :: RemoveChild On Stage From MC?
I have a website with a homepage in which I have a movieclip called "menutopmc" which, as the name says, is a menu on top of the stage and it is an MC as instance. Inside this mc I have 5other mcs and each of them works as button.On the stage I have an other mc called "website" in which I load the several pages of the website.Here is some code to understand better what I'm doing:code on the main stage where I automatically load an swf when the website loads:

ActionScript Code:
var websiteRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("azienda.swf");


and here is the code I have inside the mc menutopmc in order to change the child previously loaded on the stage:

ActionScript Code:
function btn_content(eventObject:MouseEvent):void {


Now, the new addChild in the function btn_content works and it loads the new child on stage but the removeChild doesn't work and this is the error I get:

1120: Access of undefined property websiteLoader.
