    Building an array of movie clips

    Charine -FB buggoop Level 1


      I have a main document class and an array class (amongst others).


      I am not sure how to build the array though. Below is my attempt up to now. But I get the following error code.


      TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.

          at LetterArray/initLetters()

          at LetterArray()

          at BugGoopFSGame() //This is my main document class.


      What am I doing wrong?






      //in main document class

      public var letterArray:LetterArray = new LetterArray(stage);


      //in array class



          import flash.display.MovieClip;

          import flash.events.Event;

          import flash.events.MouseEvent;

          import flash.display.Stage;



          public class LetterArray extends MovieClip


              private var _stage:Stage;


              /*The following are movie clips that need to go into an array so that they can be manipulated togehter.

              Their classes A, F, G, H, I, N, O, S  and T were all dynamically created by flash.*/


      //Do I even need these here?


              public var a:A;

              public var f:F;

              public var g:G;

              public var h:H;

              public var i:I;

              public var n:N;

              public var o:O;

              public var s:S;

              public var t:T;


               public function LetterArray(s:Stage)


                  _stage = stage;




              private function initLetters():void


                  var LetterArray:Array = new Array[a,f,g,h,i,n,o,s,t];
