    I need to know when an instance of a class is clicked

    I know how to do this if the object to be clicked isn't an instance of a class i.e.:

    missile.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDown);
    But what do I do if "missile" is a class object? Using above code I get an error because when the project is opened there aren't any instances of it to begin with. What changes do I make to above line and should it go in the main code or in the missile class code?

    I also tried the below line in the class code for "missile" class but again it didn't work.

    this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDown);

    Hi,

    I'm not sure what you mean, attach your files or a rough mock up

    Hi,

    If you mean calling it from the library when its not on the stage, then something like so

    PHP Code:
    import flash.events.MouseEvent;

    var 
    missil:missile = new missile();
    addChild(missil);
    missil.50;
    missil.50;
    missil.buttonMode true;
    missil.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWNmouseIsDown);

    function 
    mouseIsDown(e:MouseEvent):void
    {
        
    trace(e.target);

    I didn't explain it well but I found out the solution but thanks anyway. I put the following line in the constructor code for the missile class:

    addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, clickHandler);
