You won't be able to use the ampersan codes for "<" and other items.
Check out this link for using HTML in flash.
XML may be able to handle those characters.
Hi me again,
I have been looking into XML and have got something very basic working. I was wondering if there was a way to have all of my faq solutions in an xml file (solutions.xml) each separated with an element tag relating to the question. See attached code. The issue is how to I get just the text for say installation when the user selected the question relating to it.
I have a combo box showing all the questions so for example 'How to I install flash MX?' the data part would be data:"installation". In the xml file the element tage would be <installation>Insert the CD into your CD-Drive and follow the onscreen instructions.</installation>. This would be the only text I would want to be displayed in the answer_txt dynamic text field.
I hope I have explained this enough and would really appreciate some help.
Here is a tutorial I wrote for communicating between classes in AS2, the demonstration I used utilised bringing in xml data into the flash environment which may help you solve your problem. Source files are there also for you to download mate.
Many thanks for your response and link however I'm guessing the source fla file was done in either MX 2004 Pro or later as it will not open in Flash MX 2004 which is what I have on my works computer. I have asked many times for an upgrade however they won't. Do you have the source fla file which is compatible with MX 2004? If can you either upload it somewhere or send it to me.
email on its way in a 2004 format :) if it is useful pls drop a comment on my blog ;)
Many thanks will look at my emails tonight - thanks for your help.
