    clear imput text box

      Just wondering how to clear an imput text box with a button after the user has typed something in it.
      I tried this but it doesnt work.
      on(press) {
      imput_txt.text = "";

          Nothing wrong with the code, assuming your button is placed on _root and
          your button has an instance name of 'imput_txt'. For what it's worth, it's
          considered bad form to use those on handlers as they spaghetti'ize your
          code. It's better to place your code on the frame and target the button like

          myButton.onRelease = function(){
          imput_txt.text = "";

          And a standard button works on release, not on press.
