    Need quick Actionscript help

    Afarchy
      I have a text instance called Btn1txt and I'm trying to make it fade in when the user clicks the button that this code is assigned to. It seems to lock my computer when I try this so does anyone know a solution?

      on (release) {
      while(Btn1txt._alpha <= 100){
      sleep(.1);
      Btn1txt._alpha += 5;
      }
      }

          AFAIK, there is no sleep function. A while loop will run and then the screen will refresh, so that's where your lock is coming from. Look up setInterval or onEnterFrame to make it work correctly. Also, you have to embed the font outlines for the textfield in order to fade it, if you have not done so already.
