I have a movie clip symbol that I converted from a dynamic text field with the instance name "text2". When I try to add it as a child and then try to access the text field, the compiler throws:
Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
var test = new Qwe(); //Qwe is the movie clip converted from dynamic text field addChild(test); test.text2.text ="535"; /instance name of the text field was text2.
You don't have Advanced Layers enabled, do you?
That's first time I ever even heard of it. How do I check it?
Ok, the culprit was it. I lost a whole day because of this.
Thank you for your help.
