Stubborn Error in FlashBuilder (AS3)

So I have run into this error, and I just can't seem to figure out why I am getting it. 

 

The following code:

 

trace(object1["labelText"])

 

 

Gives me the error:

 

ReferenceError: Error #1069: Property labelText not found on CascadingList.Data.BusinessActivity and there is no default value.

 

I understand what the error means, but its false.  (Note - object1 is a BusinessActivity object which is a non-dynamic class I have made).  What I can't figure out is that why FlashBuilder says that the labelText property is not found.  Specifically, when the code breaks (pauses execution) at the line because of the error:

  1. Adding object1 as a watch expression shows clearly that labelText is a property
  2. Adding object1["labelText"] as a watch expression evaluates the expression perfectly fine; and
  3. Waving the mouse over object1["labelText"] in the code evaluates the code perfectly fine.

Anyone have any ideas?

 

P.S. - I do actually need to get the value for object1["labelText"], not merely to print a trace statement.

Solution: the property "labelText" was private.

Kudos for comming back to update. I thought it might be something like that but I thought "no he would have checked that". (I do stuff like that all the time.)

I stared at my code for 45 minutes the other night after doing the same thing. Glad you figured it out!

It's amazing how many times I have come to a wall and how just analyzing the problem and organizing it so I can post a clear question on this forum has enlightened me to the answer even before I push post.
