is this html5?

Since you're using CS6, I'm guessing you're working in an ActionScript document, not HTML5.
You can convert your dynamic text to a movie clip, then create a shape in the layer beneath it with a gradient fill, and then mask the gradient with the text movie clip. More info about masking here: How to use mask layers in Adobe Animate CC
If you put both the text mask and the gradient shape in a movie clip together, you can add a drop shadow and bevel like your example.
Here is a super quick rough working example that I just threw together to give you an idea of how to set this up: Dropbox - textMask

Thank you for the reply and the files.
I need to keep the text as a dynamic text to change it during the animation for example to show the current time ...
I know. My examples use dynamic text within the mask movie clip.
