    Symbol Button Listener Issues

      i guess i don't understand how to use Symbol Buttons (I think that is the proper name for them) and listeners? I am trying to add a listener to a Symbol Button and i cannot make it work at all using addEventListener or addListener. However if i drag a Button Component on stage the listeners work all day long.

      So how do i add a listener for say the click event to a Symbol Button? I cannot seem to find any information on this? All tutorials deal with the Button Component but never seem to talk about Symbol Buttons.

      I am even going about this the correct way? Thanks.
