    hi there,

    I'm hoping that you mean you would like to control a movieclip with a keyboard button instead of the other way around.

    In this case, what you need is a keyboard listener on your movieclip.

    first you add the listener and pass in the name of the handler you will write
    addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, keyDownHandler);
    then, you write the handler and you're good to go.

    function keyDownHandler(event:KeyboardEvent):void
           if(event.keycode == 86)   //looking for a 'v' button to be pressed
                //do awesome stuff here!!
