    Component question

    Level 7
      I'm creating a keyboard entry component for a touchscreen. When the user
      hits the enter button I want to change a textfield in a movieclip to the
      text they typed in. The movieclip is outside of the component. There maybe a
      screen with multiple text entry boxes. So what I want to do is pass in a
      textfield reference into the component using getter and setter functions.
      However I am having trouble. Here's an example of what I'm doing.


      //mcKeyboard is the component name on the timeline
      //tfDisplay is the textfield on the timeline with the text 'help' in it


      mcKeyboard.tfEnter = tfDisplay;

      //When I click the enter button in the component, I have the script trace
      the text. Here is the enter button script

      trace(tfEnter.text);

      //this displays undefined


      Am I able to pass a textfield or movieclip or something like that into a
      component.
