I have a button that shows up on the stage towards the middle of my movie. I also have some actionscript (on its own layer) that attaches an onRelease (getURL) event to this button.
If I place the actionscript in the first frame--before the button appears on the stage--it doesn't work. If I place the actionscript at the same point or after the button appears, it works.
Is this the way it's supposed to be, where actionscript can't work on a symbol that hasn't appeared on the stage yet? If so, not sure why I never noticed before. Then again, it's been a while so I'm sort of back in newbish mode again :\.
Yep, that's the way it is... code cannot attack something that isn't present when it executes.
