    How to display and move an object in an mxml project, like from file Ball.as

    jherr22

      Hi,

      I want to put up a Ball (and later, I will move it), in my mxml project.

       

      I created a class Ball, in file Ball.as

      I referenced it in my MXML Project, within <mx:Script>

       

      public var myball:Ball = new Ball();

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      //------------------------------------------

       

       

      public function putUpTheBall():void

      {

      myball = new Ball();

       

      addChild(myball);

      }

       

       

       

      I also have:    <mx:Button click="{putUpTheBall()}"/>

      When I click the button, I get:

      TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert Ball@5b63381 to mx.core.IUIComponent.

       

      It is the addChild() that is creating the run-time error.

      How can I display the Ball??

       

      (BTW, I had no trouble with doing this in an actionscript project.)
