I have an app where I am wanting to use some movieclips when clicked on to remove the current movieclip and add a new movieclip. My problem seems to be that whenever I refer to the homeArtist_mc movieclip I get an error. For example on line 50 in my actionscript I have
homeArtist_mc.buttonMode = true;
and I get this error
1120: access of undefined property homeArtist_mc.
I am pretty new to actionscript 3 and I have been trying for days to figure this out with no luck. The fla file is attached.
thank you for your help!
That error is telling you that at that the time the code is executing that it doesn't know what homeArtist_mc is. It can be any number of reasons for this. Most popular is that the movieclip doesn't exist on the frame where that code is. Here are some others:
Is the clip instance spelled exactly the same -- capitalization?
Are you confusing the Library symbol name with the instance name on the stage?
In the preferences have you accidently turned off "autmatically declare stage instances"?
PS: This would have been better posted in the AS3 section.
And oh I forgot that if your clip is nested inside another clip you might need to check the scope.
