Declaring object variable shows errors?

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of TweenLite stuff working wonderfully by adding the AS3 code on the timeline. Now I am trying to add a MovieClip dynamically with: 

 

var blackfadeMC:blackFade = new blackFade();

addChild(blackFadeMC);

 

Inside the blackFade.as class I have some TweenLite stuff going on that works fine if I just drag and drop the MovieClip to the stage, but when I add it dynamically with the code above, I get these errors:

 

 

TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.

I have noticed it's the first line, where I declare the object variable, that is causing the problems. If I comment my two lines of code out then there's no errors, but if I just uncomment that line beginning with "var" then it spazzes out again.
 
New to TweenLite so if it's something obvious I do apologise! Thanks for the help :)

I fixed it but haven't a clue how or why. If I find out what the problem was and how it got fixed I will spill the beans.

 

I feel like a right idiot making a thread for something that fixed itself.

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums. Seems to be just a simple capitalization error in the code you posted:

 

var blackfadeMC:blackFade = new blackFade();
addChild(blackFadeMC);
 
Don't worry about it. It happens 100 times to everyone.
 
Happy Tweening
