AS2 attachMovie with initObject

Hello All.

I’ve managed to accomplish much by myself, but I find myself coming back to this great site for help.

Ok. I’m attaching a clip to _root using .attachMovie, and the clip I’m attaching is an instance of a class. Normally, attachMovie() returns a reference to the newly created clip. However, when you’re using the optional initObject commands, it seems it doesn’t return anything. That is, I’m using this:

var x = _root.attachMovie("blank", "line" + thickness + color, _root.getNextHighestDepth()).initialize(parent, thickness, color, opacity, angle, length, startX, startY);

And x is always undefined.

Is there any way around this? Can anyone help me? Is your favorite color red?

Well, I’ll be grateful for any help I can get on this one, folks.
