Hi all,
I have a movie clip with an instance of an FListBox in it. Whenever I try to attach a new instance of this movie to the stage, the instance name of the FListBox does not get picked up and I cannot access it!

Is there any particular reason for this, and is there a suitable workaround?

Thank you,
-Dan

Ordinarily I'd do something like

_root.attachMovie("myMovieLinkageSymbol", "movieClip2", 1);
movieClip2.ListBoxInstance.addItem("Screw", "This");

This doesn't work, but if I drag an instance of myMovieLinkageSymbol onto the stage, call it movieClip2, and write the same line of code, it's added.

Thanks,
-Dan

It's normal, when you fire this line:

movieClip2.ListBoxInstance.addItem("Screw", "This");

the ListBox instance loading (initialization) is not complete. Try this way:


_root.attachMovie("myMovieLinkageSymbol", "movieClip2", 1);
movieClip2.ListBoxInstance.onLoad = function()
{
      this.addItem("Screw", "This");
};
