Load movieclip from library, play then delete

hi there again

i am looking for something easy enough, but i can’t find the right way it seems

mission: when a button is pressed i want to load a mc (no swf) from my library, play that and when it’s done playing(the mc) it deletes.

purpose: i just want to make somekind of “flash” “blink” when a button is pressed. when another button is pressed the “blink” loads again.

i tried it with the my_mc. _visible = true/false code. but it just doesn’t work out.

anyone has a tip around this one? much appreciated
