HTML5 using SWF library position issues

I am currently doing a small project using a swf file made with CS5 and codebase in Haxe+Openfl. I am using swf-lite and I am experiencing some problems with MovieClip placements. I want it to be running in a browser (HTML5).

I have a MenuView object in my SWF library that I can instantiate, but I can’t change the position of it?
In my Main.hx I am adding MenuView as a child but since I have a small bar that is supposed to be above the view I want to move it down by 64px.
setting menuView.y = 64 doesn’t do anything apparently.
I have tried with other MovieClips as well and it’s the same.

Am I missing something?

I was missing casts it seems.
