Hi,

I see that Container has a getChildByName but I can't figure out how to add an object into container by name...

What am I missing?

Thank you.

A name is a simple property of all DisplayObjects. Any DisplayObject can be added as a child to a container, and that child can later be retrieved by name. The method you're looking for is `addChild` (http://www.createjs.com/docs/easeljs/classes/Container.html#method_addChild). If you have a reference to the DisplayObject you want to add to the Container, pass that reference to the Container's `addChild` method.

You were right! it works - Thank you :-)

I think it would be better if 'Container' class would have a constructor with 'name' as parameter - it would be self explanatory this way.
