Default unloading multiple movie clips

Hi there,

Is there a way to unload multiple movie clips without having to specifically reference each one? I have a load of parent movie clips which all have child movie clips attached. I want to unload all these child movie clips when I press a reset button. Is there an easy way to do this.

I don't want to have to use specific paths as the name of the child will vary each time the movie is played. So:


is no good because another time the path might need to be:


I basically need a way to unload all movie clips attached to 'parentclip_mc'. Can anyone help?

Now, this is untested, but I have done something similar.

You may want to try something like this....
ActionScript Code:
//where 15 = the number of clips to unload for (var i:Number = 1; i<=15; i++) {     this.parentclip_mc["child" + i + "_mc"].unloadMovie();                    }

Like I said, untested but should be close if it doesn't work.
