I have set up a dynamic text field (named "btn_txt"), within
a movie (btntxt_mc), within a movie (button_mc), within another
movie (b1). I want to dynamically load my link text into each
button, and it works fine, so long as I place the AS code within
any of the first three symbols. Once I place the code in my "b1"
movie, or in the "button_mc" movie in anything less than frame 30
(where the "btntxt_mc" enters) it stops loading the dynamic text.
From what I can tell, this is because I do not load my
"btntxt_mc" movie clip until frame. When I change it so that it
loads right away on frame 1, I am able to load the text from the
higher level, "button_mc".
I want to be able to load all my information from the _root
of this file so I can eventually run it all from an .xml file and
have it distribute to all the different buttons properly.
Can anyone explain what I can do to bypass this annoyance and
why this is happening?
PS - I would attach the .fla but I can't find an option to do
What would you suggest I do in this case? Load the
information from the xml in the root, store it in a string or some
kind of variable, then call upon it in AS in the frame where the
I'm relatively new to flash, so please bear with me!
PS - the reason I want to load the information from the xml
in the root is because I plan on having multiple links, from
multiple instances of the same symbol, and I want to be able to
load them all at the same time to make things simple at the final
