Subject: RE: FLASH: Get Property of Nested MC's Question
From: Kenneth.Austin
Date: Fri, 18 Feb 2000 18:41:05 GMT

In frame 2 of MC "/Parent/Child" I set
variable "XGrandchild" =
GetProperty ("/Parent/Child/Granchild", _x)

-- not sure if you did this in the actual movie, but there's no "d" in

I want the property to appear in text field
named "XPosition" on the main timeline.

I use Call to refer to an actionscript
on the main timeline.
Call "../../../:Update"

-- it's a little easier to just use "/:" to reference the root

Set Variable "XPosition" =
Eval ( /Parent/Child:Grandchild )

-- need to say ( /Parent/Child:XGrandchild), right?

just helping with a quick glance, i didn't look that far into it.

good luck
