Hello.  I'm working with Flash CS3 with AS3.  I have created a five-scene project and somehow I keep getting a Runtime error message when I test movie/publish it.

1034      Type Coercion failed: cannot convert flash.display::SimpleButton@2efb101 to flash.display.MovieClip

There is no button named "SimpleButton@2efb10"  in my library/project file and I don't understand why I keep getting this error message...  

One ohter problem I had, which is a button problem, but I solved it with simply changed its instance name and correspending AS.  But this Runtime error message hasn't gone and it annoys me quite a bit.

If anyone understand what this mean and how to solve this problem, I really appreciate it.
Thank you very much for your help in advance.

SimpleButton is a class type which you're trying to access as a MovieClip type.

Hi guys,

As I was researching this error, I came across this:

http://board.flashkit.com/board/showthread.php?t=771835

which states:

"A bit of detective work revealed that it has nothing to do with the code, but occurs when:

    * The swf is being run from a remote server.
    * You have a custom class on the stage which has an instance name.
    * The class is NOT declared as "Export in first frame".
    * An instance of the class doesn't appear on the first frame of the movie.


So the solution, in my case, was just to tick "Export in first frame" in the library symbol linkage options. This made everything work fine, but if anyone knows why this is then I'd be interested to know."

(last post in the thread)

Now, since Flash is not my expertise...bluegenie is the above even possibly a solution?

You sure you want this closed, then?  We can keep it open if the above turns out to be incorrect?

She's new on the site and probably didn't know to leave it open until the issue IS resolved (I know her IRL and recommended she post the problem here).

ok if she wants to tell her to upload her files and we can investigate if the issue is not resolved.

I have changed every single button's instance name and the error message disappears...  I used very typical instance names, xxx_btn, but somehow those namings were causing the problem, I think.
Thank you for your help!
