Without looking at your example I would assume that this would work:
Content is a symbol so you need to use getSymbol
Yes and no, Elaine. Kind of confusing but if the button is directly on the stage, that code works. However, if that button gets nested inside of its own symbol, the code no longer works and a JS error appears in console.
So in other words, the button and the text field are nested inside of symbols, but not the same symbol. So it's a question of the path being used.
I tried switching sym to Stage to no effect.
Redid the test file and uploaded it to Dropbox:
OK, I found it! This is it!
Sorry I did not realize your button was inside a symbol.
Yea, no problem, Elaine. This is a complicated project. So lots o'nesting going on.
Actually this is Marie - but Elaine is really cool!
I was trying to figure out why he was talking to me, but I hadn't responded...
