I'm trying to reference input text fields in an actionscript
and I get getting a value of "undefinded". It's an email contact
form that is a separate movie clip that I'm trying to reference
from a button actionscript. I've tried qualifying it with a the
clip instance name, as in form.message and just "message" and still
no luck. I had created a test flash file that only contained the
movie clip and button and it working fine. I know its a problem
with qualification of some sort but I'm a bit lost at this point.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.
give your textfield an instance name. on the timeline that
contains your textfield use trace(whatever), where whatever is your
textfield's instance name. copy that trace output and paste it into
your button code where you want to reference your textfield.
