Instantiation attempted of a non-constructor

October 28th, 2010 by admin » (0) » AS3

Something that might help you save some precious time of your life.
If you get this error with (perhaps) a class you’ve coded, try this:

Don’t give the variable the same name as the class you want to instantiate…

var MyClass = MyClass();

is bad.

var varName = MyClass();

will probably work.
