    help in getter and setter

    dhina.techno
      Hi,
      I am a newbie in actionscript 3.0. I just created a property and the code goes like this..

      private var _lastname:String;
      private var _firstname:String;

      // create a "lastname" property
      public function get lastname():String {
      return this._lastname;
      }
      public function set lastname(value:String):void {
      this._lastname = value;
      }

      // create a "lastname" property
      public function get firstname():String {
      return this._firstname;
      }
      public function set firstname(value:String):void {
      this._firstname = value;
      }

      When i tried to build this, i got the compile time error
      "The private attribute may be used only on class property definitions".
      your help is highly appreciated!
