    AS3 and Flash 9 alpha: how to access non-dynamic children of a MovieClip?

    Andrei_Thomaz
      hello list,

      I am trying to upgrade this drawing app to ActionScript 3:
      http://www.rgbdesigndigital.com.br/didaticos/coodraw

      I wouldn't like to create all the interface through code, so I created a MovieClip with all the buttons inside, and associated a class with this MovieClip.

      But I cann't access the buttons (that are inside the movieclip) in the methods of this class. Something like that:

      function initialize()
      {
      my_button.addEventListener();
      }

      doesn't work. And this doesn't work too:

      function initialize()
      {
      var oMyButton = this.getChildByName("my_buttom");
      oMyButton.addEventListener();
      }

      How can I acess a button that was created in the Flash App, not dynamically?

      thanks,
      andrei
