Clip referencing problem

I’m having some problems with a little script I’m working on that will create circles in a movieclip so that I can position them later. The problem is that the circle doesn’t seem to be drawing within the clip. I trace it’s x,y,width and height and it’s all 0…

Here’s what I have so far.

function drawCircle(centerX, centerY, radius, sides, clpNm, clr){
    [clpNm]moveTo(centerX + radius,  centerY);
    for(var i=0; i<=sides; i++){
        var pointRatio = i/sides;
        var pointX = centerX + Math.cos(pointRatio*2*Math.PI) * radius;
        var pointY = centerY + Math.sin(pointRatio*2*Math.PI) * radius;
        [clpNm]lineTo(pointX, pointY);

drawCircle(25, 25, 25, 150,"w",0x333333);

The problem is almost definitely with the naming of the clip I think, but I can’t figure it so. Any help would be great.
