trace() that eval creation to see if you're creating what you think you are creating.
I've placed some trace functions in my code and it came up with the following:
So when I analyze the output... It looks like my paths to the objects are correct.
and what do you expect to happen to _level0.letter15_mc when it plays that you're not seeing?
The _level0.letter15_mc movie clip should look like it is spinning (like a letter on Wheel of Fortune). So I've done the linkage in the library, and the mcLetterTile movie clip have a stop() action in frame 1, and a stop() action in frame 30. No other code there.
Contained in the mcLetterTile is another movie clip, letter_mc, which has my dynamic text field. I've embedded the fonts so it will animate.
Strange thing I've noticed. If I change the last line of my code from play() to _alpha = 50, the movie clips I expect to play go 50 transparent...
create a new fla, drag your library movieclip to the stage of the new fla, assign a letter to its textfield and remove the stop() from your movieclip's first frame. does it play like you expect?
I dragged the movie clip to the stage of a new file. Opened the movie clip, removed the stop. Opened the letter movie clip, edited the letter to "W". Ran the swf and it worked exactly like I expected.
Thanks for your sticktoitiveness on this one, kglad. I greatly appreciate it.
then you have code elsewhere that's preventing your movieclip from playing. this must be looping code like a setInterval() or onEnterFrame.
or your movieclip really is playing but you don't see it play.
