    [RESOLVED] TypeError 1034. Possibly a URLRequest/ URLLoader problem.

    Peek-a-boo, me again. I'm having some trouble with loading in a txt-file and I can't figure out why, as it works in a new .fla file as well. Here's the code in a nutshell:

    PHP Code:
    goldstar.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWNshowHS);

    var 
    weekrequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("weekscores.txt"); 
    var 
    weekloader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();

    //weekloader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;
    //Not sure on this one, reading in data like this is completely new to me.

    weekloader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETEcheckWeek);

    function 
    showHS(MouseEvent):void{
        
    weekloader.load(weekrequest);  // --> checkWeek
        
    trace("loaded"); //This works
    }

    function 
    checkWeek(event:Event):void{
        var 
    loader2:URLLoader URLLoader(event.target);
            
    //This seems to be the problem.
            
    var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables(loader2.data);

    This gives me the following error:
    Code:
    TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert flash.display::Stage@2cdcf191 to flash.net.URLLoader.
    	at Game_fla::MainTimeline/checkWeek()
    	at Game_fla::MainTimeline/launchloop()
    I've also tried several different traces, but they either returned null or nothing, but there's definitely an array of numbers in the .txt file.

    As always, thanks in advance.

    In checkweek, what comes back if you

    trace(event.target)
    trace(typeof event.target)

    It sounds like the event.target is the stage by the error, but that doesn't sense.

    That's what I was thinking too, but I can't think of a why. o.o;

    The traces give back
    [object URLLoader] and object respectively.

    Also, I forgot to mention the error actually fires before function showHS....Ok, I feel stupid now. While typing this, I realized the problem might lie somewhere completely different, and it did. In a loop, chechWeek was accidentally turned on, meaning it was also checking before the Event.COMPLETE event...

    Argh, I'm sorry for taking your time, but thanks!

    I do that all the time. Sometimes it takes you laying the problem out step for step for someone else to help solve when the problem reveals itself
