If i understand correctly, M3 is inside the symbol "Page0" yes?
You cal also use e.target so you can copy/paste the code without having to replace the name of the element in the code.
I've attached a sample for you to take a look at.
The close button is inside the symbol M3 and M2 and M1 and is supposed
to close itself down revealing Page0 underneath
I'm a visual learner If you could upload a zipped sample of your project it would be easier for me to help based on seeing the heirarchy of your composition.
Sadly on this occasion I cant under a cloak order from client.
basically I have a stage upon which is a symbol (Page0) upon which is a
hidden symbol (M1).
A button on Page0 'shows' M1 on M1 is another button which needs to
close M1 (hide)
sorry i wish I could share it (
So the button to hide M1 is inside the M1 symbol - is that right? If so, then try this:
// using getParentSymbol will get Page0 symbol
Thanks Joe that worked well. I had the concept right but not the syntax ,,, many thanks
