I have a movie clip that is tracking the horizontal location of the mouse. Id like to pass the location from the movieclip (track_mc) to a text box on the parent movieclip. Any simple way to do that or am I going to need to dig and really learn about classes ;] ?
Well, you don't actually have to cast parent to MovieClip - but you'd have to turn off strict mode, and that's not a good idea. You need to cast to MC, because the compiler only knows .parent as a DisplayObjectContainer
You answered that so quickly it gave me an opportunity to experiment. I was trying to take it a step further now and trying to use similar logic to pass it just as a variable, (Learning more ticks) not into a text box, but a trace (in the parent MC). Not having any luck still experimenting. any suggestions?
