hi. i’ve got a loop which creates several movie clips with a text field inside each one.
// Create the Empty Movie Clip _root.createEmptyMovieClip("dateClip"+j,300+j); var dateClip:MovieClip = _root["dateClip"+j]; // Create a Text Field Inside them dateClip.createTextField("thisDate"+j,j,0,0,indColWidth,colHeight);
now, in another function that occurs later in the program, i want to access those clips and set some properties to change. i see from listing the variables in the debugger that these clips exist at level0, but i cannot access them that way. i try to do this but it keeps returning undefined:
trace(_level0.dateClip["thisDate"+today]); // today is a random value which i can trace
i know i’m missing something simple but cannot figure it out.
