    Problem with flash Objects in Director

    Level 7
      Hi.

      We use flash Movies to enter some text (is needed due to Multilanguage
      support).
      Flash Movie contains just one input field ans is imported as director Flash
      castmember.
      Than this castmember is presented in 3 Sprites.

      The problem is, that a part of this sprite does not show a caret, when the
      text is entered.
      For example when we start our director movie once, the caret is not seen in
      second field,
      by next start it can be missing in fields 1 and 2, by next start - in fields
      1 and 3.
      There is no logicality, it is always different fields.

      The text can be always entered, but the problem is, user does not see where
      he enter the text at the moment.

      Does any one have any IDEA how can the be corrected?
      Is there any new Flash Asset Xtras that can correct this problem?
      Our Flash Asset Xtra is from 08.09.2004 (Director MX 2004 is used + Update
      dmx2004_101_update_en.exe)

      This problem annoys us over 1,5 years and we still do not have any solution

      Any help will be appreciated.
      Thank you in advance
      Jorg

          There is a newer flash asset xtra for Flash 8 you can download on the Adobe
          site. It may take you a while to find but it's there. Hopefully that will
          help.

          By caret do you mean the flashing line where the text is entered? Have you
          tried making 3 separate castmembers instead of using one for all 3 sprites,
          just to see if it still happens?

            Yes, we tried it too.
            Even when we have just one field on the stage,the caret do not appears
            always
