Targeting symbols with javascript?


(chris1) #1

I am wondering if it is possible to target actions from one symbol to another? Much like you used to use “tell_target” actions in Flash to control timelines within movieclip instances?

I managed to figure out how to “sort of” achieve this using timeline actions to target a symbol on a given scene - but what I would like to be able to do is target an action to a symbol from a button on the main timeline or from within another symbol instance.

Is this possible in Hype 3?
