Klaus is right.  "Value" is used to resolve the numbered property names
(uFrame1, uFrame2, etc).

It's been mentioned before -- the "text" property of images is not
intuitively named, but it's a property you can set to update an image's
contents, especially when changing both the imageData and alphaData

Also, make sure you don't have a typo occurring in your script: uIMAG vs
