I'm trying to find out how I can get the name of the symbol I've clicked.

So I've got a symbol named "button1" and I've got an onclick event working. Like this.

ButtonOne.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP,ButtonOneUp);
function ButtonOneOver(e:MouseEvent){	

}

Open in new window


Now I need the name of the clicked symbol which is "button1". How can I achieve this?
