I feel quite stupid trying to alter the properties of a dynamic textfield in my flash movie at runtime, through ActionScript. I know the basic scripting to do that, however I can't find the right path to the textfield instance. The textfield ("content") lies in a button symbol ("inner"), which again is inside a movie clip symbol ("foobar"), which is placed on the current timeline ("_root"). Seeing from the "Insert Target Path" tool, the path to the button is
but from there I can't get at the the textfield object in the button. The path
returns nothing, though from my understanding it would be correct. There's nothing shown in the target path utility either.
So how can I reference a button's textfield via ActionScript? I'm using Flash MX 2004 here, and am testing the scripts in the Flash 6 Player.
Be kind to me if this post doesn't read to well, I'm more or less a n00b at ActionScript, and still confused about the way Flash exposes it's objects for scripting. Should the post lack any important information for this problem then tell me so and I provide what I can.
