do you want the individual letters of the text to move independently or move as a group?
thanks for the reply.
Probably as a group, but either way I think would be okay if one is doable but not the other or something.
they are both doable. moving as a group is easier, though.
initiate a loop (onEnterFrame or setInterval(), for example) and update your textfield's _x property causing it to move from right to left until the final _x property is reached, stop your loop and start a setInterval() with your pause time to call move the textfield off -stage.
thank you VERY much. I didn't realize I could actually move the text with that property
In case it might help others, with a loop the animation was actually too fast, so I ended up moving it X number of pixels at a time via a setinterval callback happening at X interval, to get the fly effect. I then call that callback for every string, via another setinterval to get the pause.
