I have been making some changes to a program that I didn't
using Director MX. I have opened the program probably 30
times, added code,
tested it. It ran fine without errors.
I'm doing some more work now on one behavior. I have made
some code changes
in that behavior and have run it several times. All of a
sudden I'm getting
an error on _key.key Handler not Defined. This code is not in
I've modified and I checked to see in the backup version if I
type an odd char while this behavior might have been open,
but the code
matches the original version so that didn't happen.
I'm sure this is because MX doesn't recognize the new OOP
structure that MX
1) Why did this all of a sudden pop up when for a week it's
2) Is _key.key in MX 2004 EXACTLY the same as the key in MX,
so if I do a
global replace on _key.key, I won't have a problem?
I could update the movie to MX2004 but I prefer to leave as
much of the
project as it was when I received it.
In Director 9 and earlier "the key" is the command to use. In
still use it in Director 10 and 11 because it makes more
sense to me
than _key.key which seems silly and redundant. I think you
find/replace it without problems, even if you upgrade the
project to a
newer version of Director.
