Dynamically add a symbol from the resource library

I have created a symbol that is currently located in the resource library. I want to run a function that will add that symbol to the scene (without it already being on the stage). Anyone know of a way to achieve this?

I do not think you can.

I would suggest having the symbol off stage and move it on stage when you need it.

Yep. Thats what I ended up doing.

-Thanks for your reply.
