I hope you can help.
How do you access a MovieClip on stage (which has an instance name) from within a .AS class file (where the class file is not the document class)?
I have an instance name on stage called “world”
Within that I have another MC called “hitCountBelt”
Within that I have a textfield called “hitCount”
So in my external class (PushHitCount.as) I’m trying to populate the text property of hitCount something like this:
world.hitCountBelt.hitCount.text = “999”;
//Where 999 actually gets replaced by a value returned from an .aspx script
The trouble is - I don’t know how to correctly access the MC instances on stage from within this external class file.
Am I approaching this the wrong way in terms of project structure? Should I even be trying to access the instances this way?
Can anyone help?
Thanks a bunch
