    Dynamic Text Box not working

    seran127
      This is my code in in the actions layer

      as you can see it should update every second and it does because when I do a trace it shows in the output box that the counter increases. The problem is that I also have a dynamic text field with the var = cliptime and the instance = cliptime. When the code loads I do get it to output "0:00" but as the movie increments the text box doesn't change at all.

      setInterval(displayTime, 600);
      import mx.video.*

      function displayTime():Void{
      n = Math.round(my_movie.playheadTime);
      mins = Math.floor(n/60);
      secs = n - 60*mins;
      secs<10 ? secs = "0"+secs : secs;
      cliptime.text = mins+":"+secs
      trace(mins+":"+secs)
      }
