Why was this JS API deprecated/dropped in Flash CC? The docs make no mention of why, just that it simply was. What can I use in its stead? I see fl.actionsPanel.getText(), but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how to use that to replace SymbolInstance.actionScript.
it was dropped because flash cc doesn't support as2 and it makes no sense to apply actionscript to a symbol using as3.
in addition, it should never have been used in as2 (but that's another story).
you can still apply the actionScript property to a frame object.
Ah, right you are! I guess we were using the AS2 method of grabbing the actionscript from the object, versus the AS3 method of grabbing it from the frame. Thanks much!
