For some reason when I try and exaluate maxscroll it only
works if it is on an onRelease.
I have a function to find out if maxScroll is larger than 1.
However this function needs to be triggered twice by a mc with an
onRelease before it executes properly. I thought this might be a
timing issue... i.e. the text hadn't been loaded before the the
function was called and therefore the maxScroll couldn't evaluate,
but if i trace the text and the maxScroll to the function the text
is coming out fine but the maxScroll evaluates to 1 (not 11). If
you then click on an mc that also runs this same function it then
correctly evaluates the maxScroll. Why it not do it correctly the
Any ideas... i know this is a little complicated in
explanation but it is driving me crazy... thanks J.
Suffice to say it was a kind of timing issue... basically I
was changing the size of the text height after i loaded the text
and then trying to evaluate the maxscroll... however if you change
the textbox height then load the text then evaluate the maxscroll
It is safe to say that there is nothing more satisfying and
frustrating than when you struggle for hours on something as lame
as that.... ahhhhhh... why didn't i become an artist? no right or
