    How to show image from within a symbol

    Rezu Level 1

      Howdy,

       

      EA, Win7

       

      I've imported an img on to my stage, converted it to a symbol (and unchecked autoplay).

      Then I deleted the img from the stage, the symbol w/img still remains in the Assets > Symbols section.

       

      What I want to do now is simply have the img (that's inside the symbol) appear when I click on a button/text.

       

      Is this possible? I've tried...

       

      sym.getSymbol("image").show();       where "image" is the name of the symbol

       

      but this doesn't work. What am I missing?

       

       

      Thanks for any help,

       

      R
