just assign the _x and _y properties of your textfield or your movieclip.
Thanks for pointing out that oversight.
Movie Clips are positioned by the moveto() while the textfield is positioned via the _x, and _y.
Actually, moveTo is part of the drawing API. It's used to move the
drawing cursor to a specific location without drawing. I don't believe
moveTo has ever been used to move a movie clip (or any UI object for that
matter). In ActionScript 2.0, you must update the "_x" and "_y" properties
(as kglad pointed out), and in ActionScript 3.0 they're "x" and "y"
respectively. Unless you have your own "moveto" method, you won't be able to
use it to move anything, even movie clips.
