SymbolInstance.actionScript deprecation

Hullo,

 

Why was this JS API deprecated/dropped in Flash CC? The docs make no mention of why, just that it simply was. What can I use in its stead? I see fl.actionsPanel.getText(), but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how to use that to replace SymbolInstance.actionScript.

    it was dropped because flash cc doesn't support as2 and it makes no sense to apply actionscript to a symbol using as3.

     

    in addition, it should never have been used in as2 (but that's another story).

     

    you can still apply the actionScript property to a frame object.
