Referencing problem !

Hello.

On my clip (which is called objHover) I have the following code:

onClipEvent(data)
{
      strName = Name;
}

onClipEvent(load)
{
      loadVariables ("testinfo.html", this);
}


And this works fine. The field called strName gets populated.
But when I try and move it into my main action layer, it stops working. Here is my code:

objHover.onData = function () {
      strName = Name;
}

objHover.onLoad = function () {
      loadVariables("testinfo.html", objHover);
}

Could someone please tell me what is wrong there? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

onClipEvent(data) and onClipEvent(load) can't be written as you are trying here...

only "MovieClip.onEnterFrame" is supported outside MovieClip...

alternative to ur code, you can simply assign variables as following:
----------
objHover.strName = Name;
objHover.loadVariables("testinfo.html", objHover);
---------

I think this works:

myVars = new LoadVars();
myVars.load("testinfo.html");


myVars.onLoad = function (success) {
     if (success) {
        trace (" variables loaded ");
        trace(myVars.Name);
    } else {
        trace (" Error loading variables ");
    }
}
