    resolved [RESOLVED] rewind button in AS3

    Im trying to create a rewind button to take me to the start of my movie clip.

    I have entered this code but the button doesnt seem to want to work:

    rewindBtn.onRelease.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CL ICK); void
    function (){
    movieMc.seek(0);
    }

    Instead, it comes up with this error:

    TypeError: Error #1010: A term is undefined and has no properties.
    at Videodoc_fla::MainTimeline/frame1()


    Can someone please suggest a way to solve this problem or suggest some new code?

    Thanks

    Unless you have a clip called "onRelease", that shouldn't be there. addEventListener takes two arguments, not one: The type of event, and the function to call. The listener function must take a single parameter of type Event, or a specific Event subclass, like MouseEvent. Your "void" declaration of the function return type is out of place. Although you can use an anonymous function as an event listener, this makes it very difficult to remove that listener later. Usually, you will want to use a normal named function.

    Code:
    rewindBtn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, rewind);
    
    function rewind(e:MouseEvent):void{
      movieMc.seek(0);
    }
