Animate CC: Alpha property not being recognised

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Long time reader, first time poster.


I've been using GreenSock for Flash quite happily for a number of years now but we've just had an update to Animate CC and now I can't get it work at all!


For example the following code:


import com.greensock.*;


function setPage(){
    boxOver.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, showInfo);
    boxOver.buttonMode = true;


function showInfo(e:MouseEvent){
    boxOver.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, showInfo);
    boxOver.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, hideInfo);

    TweenLite.to(showInfo, 0.5, {alpha:0});

    //reduce alpha with GreenSock


function hideInfo(e:MouseEvent){
    boxOver.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, showInfo);    
    boxOver.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, hideInfo);

    TweenLite.to(showInfo, 0.5, {alpha: 1});

    //increase alpha with GreenSock



Produces this output:


ReferenceError: Error #1069: Property alpha not found on builtin.as$0.MethodClosure and there is no default value.
    at com.greensock.core::PropTween()
    at com.greensock::TweenLite/_initProps()
    at com.greensock::TweenLite/_init()
    at com.greensock::TweenLite/render()
    at com.greensock.core::SimpleTimeline/render()
    at com.greensock.core::Animation$/_updateRoot()


I've got the COM folder in with the .FLA as normal and I'm a bit stumped. Any help you could give me would be great.


Many thanks! :)

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums,


It appears the target of your tween is the showInfo() function. You need to use a Display Object. Maybe boxOver?
