Flex 2 / Flash CS3 ActionScript Error #1150

Posted in Error, errors, Flash, Flex at 5:20 am by Curtis J. Morley

ActionScript Error #1150: The protected attribute may be used only on class property definitions.

Description:
This ActionScript Error justs means that you have used the access control modifier 'protected' in the wrong spot. There are four access control modifiers - public, private, internal, and protected. Each of these specify how the method or variable is accessed. Each access control modifier has it's own error but they all mean the same thing. Access control modifiers need to be used in the right place. The 'internal' and 'public' can only be used inside a 'package' and 'private' and 'protected' can only be used on classes.

Fix:
Make sure to only use the 'protected' access control modifier to define a method or variable within the class itself and not within a method(function).

Bad Code:

package{
	public class MySize {
		public function Connection():void{
			protected var borderSize:uint = 0;
			trace(size);
		}
	}
}

Good Code:

package{
	public class MySize {
		private var size:uint = 40;
		protected function Connection():void{
			trace(size);
		}
	}
}

As always Happy Flashing
