Subject: FLASH: ****syntax is weird****
From: David Wallach

or its just ME thats weird

two movieclips, both on the main timeline. button in movie 'clip1' to set
visability of 'clip2'

the problem is in the path.... if I use

on (release) {
setProperty ("../clip2", _visible, 0);

//it works fine, but if I use the new path convention of....

on (release) {
setProperty (_root.clip2, _visible, 0);

it hides clip1!!! the clip with the button in it!!!
what gives? It must be something obvious that I am overlooking, but having
done this very simple thing in flash4 about a bazillion times, I cannot
figure out why its broke.
