AS2: rollover on attached movieclip

The following is the chunk of my code that is attaching a movieclip (from timeline), tracing thisDot works so it is not the variable which is a problem but there is no rollover applied to the attached movieclip.

var dot_name:String = new String(Graphs[s]._name+"_dot"+i);
var dotObj:Object = new Object();
if (prevX != undefined) {
dotObj._x = newX;
} else {
dotObj._x = 0;
}
dotObj._y = Slide_y;
Graphs[s].chart.attachMovie("graph_dot",dot_name,Graphs[s].chart.getNextHighestDepth(),dotObj);
eval(thisDot=Graphs[s]+".chart."+dot_name);
Graphs_dots[s].push(thisDot);
thisDot.onRollOver = function () {
trace(this);

Answer

Looks to me that this row:

eval(thisDot=Graphs[s]+".chart."+dot_name);

should be this instead?

thisDot=eval(Graphs[s]+".chart."+dot_name);
