Apologies if the title does not make much sense! Basically I am writing a very basic game and at the point of 'GAME OVER' I want the player to enter their name in a pop-up box. Pretty simple but I am struggling!

So far I have tried creating a MC which has a textfield and two buttons ('submit score' and 'cancel') but the instance names I have given the components (within the MC) are not recognised within actionscript and i am getting compiliation errors.

The way that the MC 'pops up' is by making it visible. (The next step is to save the data and upload to a leaderboard which is outside of the scope of this question).

Has anybody got a simple solution to suggest?? I am going crazy with frustration!!!
