    TweenMax from an External Class

    Ok I hoping someone can help me out. I'm relatively new to action script and TweenMax but have learned a lot over the last year. I'm using Flash Professional and I am trying to ease in a map when the map icon is clicked. Once the user is done they click on the map and the map eases out. This is set up by using two external classes names MapToggleOnClass and MapToggleOffClass. I have been successful in doing this from the document class but only partially successful in doing it from an external class. I say partially because I am able to get the ease out function in the MapToggleOffClass to work when the user clicks on the map. However, I have not been able to get the map to ease in when the map icon is clicked. All my symbols are MovieClips. All the instance names are correct and the instances are on the stage. The visibility of the streetMap instance is set to off at runtime. Using a trace statement I know that Flash is detecting when I click on the Map Icon (mapBook) but nothing happens. The symbol StreetMap is linked to the Class of StreetMap and the Base Class of the MapToggleOffClass. The Symbol Map Icon has the instance name of mapBook and has its class linked to the MapToggleOnClass. I know the linkages are correct because of trace statement when I click on the instance of mapBook. The click is registered but the Tween (easeIn) does not occur. The following is my code: package { import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; import com.greensock.TweenMax; import flash.display.MovieClip; import; import; public class MapToggleOffClass extends MovieClip { public function MapToggleOffClass() { this.buttonMode = true; this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,hideMap); function hideMap(event:MouseEvent):void { trace("movieClip Instance Name = " +;, 1, {autoAlpha:0, ease:Back.easeOut}); } } } } and package { import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; import com.greensock.TweenMax; import flash.display.MovieClip; import; import; import StreetMap; public class MapToggleOnClass extends MovieClip { var streetMap:StreetMap; public function MapToggleOnClass() { streetMap = new StreetMap(); this.buttonMode = true; this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,showMap); function showMap(event:MouseEvent):void { trace("The link is working");, 1, {autoAlpha:1, ease:Back.easeIn}); } } } } The main difference is the easeOut function uses "event.currentTarget" and the easeIn function uses streetMap as the object. One more thing.... in the action script settings I have automatically declare stage instances checked. What am I missing? Any help would be much appreciated. thanks in advance.
