    How would I relate a variable to an object?

    Hey all,

    I'm pretty new to AS so this may well be a stupid question...

    How do I relate a variable to an object on the stage? I want to have a mouse over and a mouse out effect on a button yet when I use the code below I get the error:

    ReferenceError: Error #1065: Variable button is not defined.

    obviously the object on the stage is called 'button' but I didnt think I had to define objects as variables? I thought the below code was correct?

    button.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, mouseOverHandler);
    button.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, mouseOutHandler);
    function mouseOverHandler(e:MouseEvent):void
         // the mouse over effect
    function mouseOutHandler(e:MouseEvent):void
         // the mouse out effect
    Thanks for your help.

    button should be the instance name of the movieclip (not a button!), do you have that?
