Why a _root function never receives a parameter ?

HI

I am using a function in the _root scene and it is called from a movie clip inside of it, but at the moment of getting the value of the parameter it appears undefined.

Thanks in advance.
// Function at the _root scene
function ControlaMapa (estado:String){
trace(estado);
	switch (estado) { 
	 case "Merida" : 
		//Activa los datos del distribuidor
		_root.Mexico.dYucatan.play(2);
		//Desactiva el resto de los estados del mapa
		_root.Mexico.Jalisco.gotoAndStop(1);
		_root.Mexico.Michoacan.gotoAndStop(1);
		_root.Mexico.Nayarit.gotoAndStop(1);
		_root.Mexico.NuevoLeon.gotoAndStop(1);
		_root.Mexico.Tamaulipas.gotoAndStop(1);
	 break;
	
	}
}
 
 
// Function call from a movie clip inside main scene
on (release)
{
	//Controla el aspecto del resto del mapa
	_root.ControlaMapa('Merida');
	//Activa el presente estado
	this.play();
}

If I avoid typing the parameter everything works perfect, just like this:

function ControlaMapa (estado:){
// some instructions
.
.
}

The strong type syntax is ok, isn´t it ?

Thanks.

I guess there's something wrong with your *.fla file, would you mind uploading it to take a look?

('cause yes, strong typing is allowed and actually, recommended)

Please change the file extension .TXT for .FLA

Ok, I found out your issue.

You were exporting as ActionScript 1.0 (which doesn't allow strong types), so in order to fix it, all I did was to go to the File menu, then click on Publish Settings, on the window I selected the Flash tab, and on ActionScript version I switched it from ActionScript 1.0 to ActionScript 2.0.

With that, voilá, it works with strong typing :)
