API for symbols stopped working

(strmiska) #1

i can´t get this working. it did work in earlier beta-versions:
playing a timeline from a button outside or inside a symbol by only using javascript

var symbols = hypeDocument.symbolInstancesNamed('symbian');
for (var i = 0; i < symbols.length; i++) {
var symbolInstance = symbols[i];
symbolInstance.startTimelineNamed('rechtEck',        hypeDocument.kDirectionForward);

It has changed someday …

YES!! - ok this was the reason.
use: hypeDocument.getSymbolInstancesByName("symbolName");
thanx - i´ve missed something :wink:

This changed in 3.0 beta 420. Sorry about the trouble!
