I am having a really off day... :(

the error i am getting is: 1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: AdvComboBox. on the first line of test.fla

cant figure out why something as basic as this is playing up on me... any help?

(both the files are in the same directory)

content of test.fla:

var fontComboBox:AdvComboBox = new AdvComboBox();

addChild(fontComboBox);




content of AdvComboBox.as

package{
      import fl.controls.*;
      class AdvComboBox extends ComboBox{
            
            
      }
}

shouldn't you add :

import advComboBox;

or something like it as the first line of the .fla?
