    How to get a dynamically created symbol to delete itself on click?

    chirpieguy Level 1

      Here's the setup...



      I want to have a dynamically created symbol appear upon click of a hotspot. In this case, you click on a pulsating hotspot and a popup box appears.


      Here's the code I'm using for that.


      //Create an instance element of a symbol as a child of the given parent element

      var mySymbolObject = sym.createChildSymbol("gardern_toxins_popup","stage");


      So we have the symbol "garden_toxins_popup" from my library placed dynamically on the page. I would like to assign an action to the pop-up itself that allows you to remove the symbol from the stage upon click.


      I feel silly for not being able to figure this out. I tried iterations of this bit of code...


      //Get the stage from the composition level, get the symbol




      ...but it doesn't work.


      So I tried thinking like I was back in Flash and tried the following...




      But no joy on that as well. Is there something I haven't addressed in this logic or am I going about it in the wrong way? Thanks!
