    How can I set a symbol to hide with a code in the symbol?

      Hmmm... I will try to explain this question:

       

      I have my main timeline. It is the homepage of my website. The subsites are symbols filled with content. They are 100% of my composition and should overlay over my homepage.

       

      So when I click on the menu buttons on my homepage I can set the symbols (subpages, they are turned off, hidden) on and they will show and play. For that I am using this code:

       

      sym.$("mySymbol").show();

      sym.getSymbol("mySymbol").play(0);

       

       

      This works perfectly.

       

      So I actually looking for the code I put on a kind of closebutton. The closebutton jumps to the fade out transition. Then should close the compositsion - set it to hide. I am back on my homepage where I left it.

       

      I tried to put

       

      sym.$("mySymbol").hide();

       

      on a script in the timeline but that doesnt work. So can anybody tell me the right code?

       

      I searched a lot but couldnt find a solution.

       

      Thanks a lot for help!!!!
