How can I make a button that, when clicked, causes an image to appear elsewhere on the stage?

Example -- We have a button on the left side of the stage labeled "Car." We want the 'car' image to appear on the RIGHT side of the stage when the button is clicked/released.

I have the button and the image ready to go. I just don't understand how to make them work together.

It's probably something very basic... but please bear with me. I'm new to Flash.

Thanks,
Mid

number of ways to do this. one iof the simplest is probably
to :

create a new movieclip with 2 keyframes in, in the first key frame put nothing except the actionscript stop();

in the second keyframe put your image.

put this movieclip on the stage and give it an instance name.

apply an actionscript along the lines of:

onRelease.myMovieclip.gotoAndStop(2);

to the button. (where myMovieclip is the instance name of your the clip with the image in )

good luck!
