all suggestions welcome.
I have a sticky situation,
I have a site based around a bunch of Classes, I use them as templates - they each load their own type of content based on xml data.
All of these classes are associated with the MovieClip Object, using
// "Video" as example
VideoContentClass.prototype = new MovieClip();
So a few of these classes use createEmptyMovieClip() to create "holders" that I load dynamic .jpg's into.
My problem is this:
A couple of my Classes use the FUIComboBox component.
They use an attachMovie() to both create an instance, and populate it dynamically.
Say I use my menu to select and load one of the classes that uses the combobox. When I switch back to a class that loads a dynamic image it fails to find it's target movieclip - Flash returns a "target not found" error.
This only happens after switching back from a class that uses the combobox.
If I comment out (and therefore don't attach) a combobox, it all works perfectly.
Whats more, if I put a trace directly in between the createEmptyMovieClip() (to create a holder) call and the loadMovie() (to load the .jpg) call
The movieclip instance is definitely there.
It has been created correctly, but I still get a "target not found" error.
Again this only happens when the combobox is a factor.
What to do?????
I can post full code if anyone wants to see it, I didn't see the point, as I have tested and retested, it IS the combobox that is causing it.
If you've seen the code in that component and all of its subclasses, you'll know what a big bugfix that would be.
I'm really stuck on this, any help is muchly appreciated.
