    show(); -> Differences between Element and Symbol?

    Der Kraft Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I can not ged rid of a confusing problem.

      I have a Symbol (mySym)  on my Stage. the initial Status is hidden.

       

      If I call:

          

           sym.$('mySym').show();

       

      nothing happens. If I do the same wit an element on the Stage:

       

           sym.$('myElement').show();

       

      it works well. If I use

       

           sym.getSymbol()

       

      It's the same bahaviour. Are there differences between a Symbol and an Element?

      I thought not? Or?

       

      Thanks for help,

       

      Michael

          Solved the Riddle by myself. I will leave the answer for others:

           

          There are no differences! It worked well, but I have an animation in my symbol and that was triggered wrong.

           

          I tried it with:

           

          sym.$('mySym').play();

           

          and this didn't work for play();

           

          I have to use:

           

          sym.getSymbol('mySym').play();

           

          to Trigger the Timeline. Now everything is fine.

          Thanks to myself for the answer. ;-)

          And thanks to this forum which answered a lot of Questions yet.
