    Getting a variable from a symbol's timeline

    Frannie@Cartoonfun Level 1

      Hi,

       

      Could someone point me in the right direction (perhaps there are some pre-existing threads I may have failed to spot) to find out whether or not I can do the following?

       

      What I need to do is 'set' a variable within a symbol's timeline and then 'get' it from the main timeline.

       

      I have a symbol called 'audio' and on its timeline I have the code:

       

      sym.setVariable("on_off", "on");

       

      Then on the main timeline I have an 'onClick' which has the following code:

       

      var audioStatus = sym.getVariable("on_off");

       

      That doesn't seem to work; so I also tried:

       

      var audioStatus = sym.getSymbol("audio").sym.getVariable("on_off");

       

      But that doesn't work either.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Many thanks, in advance
