I am making a flash slide show, using Flash 8, that pulls in
an XML file that has image URLs and descriptions.
I can load up the XML and process it so I can pull out image
URLs and load them. I can also see the image description.
My movie has one movieclip called "holder". On the main
timeline, holder has a motion tween from an alpha of 0 to 100, then
100 frames or so of static frames, then it fades back to an alph of
All this is working happy, until I truy to add a textfield to
"holder". I can add the text field, no problem. The problem is that
the text field does not fade with when "holder" does! I know I have
created the textfield in the correct place because all of these
work as expected (punk being the textfield):
punk = holder.createTextField("punk",
holder.getNextHighestDepth() , -60, 0, 150, 20);
punk.text = "Hello World";
