asked on

calling a function on the main timeline from a class file

Hi,

when I try to call a function on the maintime line from a class file i get :

TypeError: Error #1006: redArrowAlpha is not a function.

the code is simple:


//blueArrow_select function is called from an addEventListener and works fine...

public function blueArrow_select(e:MouseEvent):void
      {
                  
                  MovieClip(parent).redArrowAlpha();

 
                 }


then in the main time line a simple function...

function redArrowAlpha():void
            {
                  
                  TweenLite.to(redArrow, 5, { alpha:0, ease:Circ.easeOut});
            }



thanks

did you set up a Document class?
where how are you currently trying to access the function resulting in that error?
are you wanting to not use an event listener?
i've just done a quick mock up and it works fine so I think I dont' understand your problem.
I need you to verify what it is you're doing (code that calls redarrowalpha)

oh my god, I must be a very tired boy...

its as3 and everything isset up fine I was simply not thinking instead of

MovieClip(parent).redArrowAlpha();

it was

MovieClip(parent.parent).redArrowAlpha();

I'm such a dufus!
