    accessing MC from external class

    Level 7
      Hi all. I'm just learning about external classes, so please be gentle.

      I want to access a movieclip on the main timeline from an external class
      (turn the MC invisible). My MC is named "mainframe"

      my external class is this:

      package {
      public class MyClass{
      public function MyClass() {
      mainframe.visible=false
      }
      }
      }


      and in my fla I call it like this:

      var myClass:MyClass = new MyClass();


      This is the error I get:

      1120: Access of undefined property mainframe.


      Can someone please explain to me how to reference a movieClip on the main
      timeline? I've spent 2 days looking for the answer and it's getting very
      frustrating.

      Thanks,
      Brock
