    [RESOLVED] getting the mc from the library

    the error

    Code:
    ArgumentError: Error #1063: Argument count mismatch on Pin$iinit(). Expected 0, got 2.
    	at Timeline0_7b8041c17f3c8a4aa76550e9fbfc4735/::frame1()
    i can get the mc to the stage if i leave out the pX,pY parameters. However, i can not interact with the mc and the trace does not work. The mc in the library, has the class set to Pin. My Pin class (nested in com.website directories) looks like this

    Code:
    package com.website{
    	import flash.display.MovieClip
    	import flash.events.EventDispatcher
    	import flash.events.Event
    	 class Pin extends MovieClip{
    		var mc:MovieClip
    		var pX:Number
    		var pY:Number
    		public function Pin(pX,pY){
    			this=mc
    			trace(mc)
    			mc.x=pX
    			mc.y=pY
    			mc.buttonMode=true
    			mc.addEventListener("mouseDown",mDown)
    			mc.addEventListener("mouseUp",mUp)
    		}
    		private function mDown(ev:Event){
    			mc.startDrag()
    		}
    		private function mUp(ev:Event){
    			mc.stopDrag()
    		}
    	}
    }
    in flash,

    Code:
    import com.website.Pin
    var holder:Sprite= new Sprite();
    holder.x=300
    holder.y=300
    this.addChild(holder)
    var pin:Pin= new Pin(50,50)
    holder.addChild(pin)

    You have many mistakes in your script.
    1. First of all, you should make it a rule to add a ;(semicolon) after each line of script.
    2. In AS3 all classes, variables etc are by default private. You need to add "public" to the class declaration.
    3. this=mc is wrong. It should be mc=this, since mc is so far not defined.

    thanks cancerinform..i know, the lacking ";" is such a bad/lazy habit. i'll work on that (it always comes back to me when working in PHP!). I went through, mades some changes (";" ,change the mc=this, and public calls). Still getting the same error.Hmmmmm

    I did not use any holder as you did. Instead I put a class Holder as the Document class:
    package {
    import flash.display.MovieClip;

    public class Holder extends MovieClip
    {

    public function Holder()
    {
    this.x=300;
    this.y=300;
    }

    }
    }
    and in the fla I put:

    var pin:Pin= new Pin(50,50);
    this.addChild(pin);

    That does not give any errors and does what it should do. I think the problem is holder in your movie. Also you don't have a real timeline. I strongly recommend to put an empty script as Document class to have a root. And also to extend it to MovieClip to be able to work with frames. There are other ways to do that but this is one way.

    cancerinform....i am so lame...in fact, the holder was not the issue. i had addressed the Class incorrectly in my linkage box (library). I had simply placed Pin...not com.website.Pin. I'm rolling now...thanks so much for your help though. I learned about all being private before public....and i will use semi-colons!!!

    Uh, that was partly my fault, since I did not create folders.
