    Creating Dynamic Text Field for Flash CS3 in Illustrator CS3

    padrepio Level 1
      I've created a series of buttons in an illustration and made them into movie clip symbols in Illustrator. I then created some text fields for the button labels and assigned them as dynamic text in the Flash Text panel in Illustrator.

      When I import the illustration into Flash and test the movie, I get this error message:

      TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert flash.text::TextField@d18cef9 to flash.display.MovieClip.
      at flash.display::Sprite/flash.display:Sprite::constructChildren()
      at flash.display::Sprite$iinit()
      at flash.display::MovieClip$iinit()
      at menu2_fla::MainTimeline$iinit()

      It seems like Flash is misinterpreting the text fields brought in from Illustrator as Movie Clips?
