what do you see in the output panel if you replace your code on the 60th frame with:
i get this in the output panel:
_level0.myText :: this is test text information for the loadvars function.
which "this is test text information for the loadvars function." is what i typed in my text file, but it still does not display in the text field.
When you mean when you name your dynamic text field "myText". Because if that's the variable name it won't work. I hope you've used that as the instance name of the textfield.
myText is the instance name of my text field.
and my text file is named "news.swf" and inside i typed: info=this is test text information for the loadvars function.
hope that helps.
now here is the WTF part.
just to test I created a new flash file and saved to to my desktop, then I created a new text file and saved it to my desktop - i placed all the code from the old flash file into the new one - and it works.
the only difference between the flash files, is that the new ones are saved to the desktop and not into folders.
is this a bug in flash?
no bug. are you doing something that requires your textfield's font to be embedded? for example, is your textfield masked?
oh man... i feel silly.
i created an outline box over my text box will a fill, once i erased that, low and behold there was my text - thanks for all the help.
i will go stand in the corner now.
