    'this' Keyword and Buttons

    Lucentminds
      If I create a simple flash document, draw a rectangle, convert it to a movie clip, give the movie clip an instance name, then put this code on it:

      quote:

      on (release) {
      trace (this._name);
      }


      I get a debug window with whatever the instance name is.

      If I change the movie clip to a Button object and apply the same actionscript to it I get nothing, or a null response. Why can't I get the Button's instance name the same way I can with the movie clip?
