I have a function on level0 that I use to condense the code
for creating textfields throughout my project. In this function the
parameter for instancename is "s". Then when I call the function I
replace "s" with the name of the textfield I'm using at that point
in the project. This is working well.
In one specific swf (Topic3) I need to add a scrollbar
component to a textfield named "panel_txt" so I associate the sb
with panel_txt in the usual way - but it's not working. The
scrollbar appears willy nilly on the screen. So I traced panel_txt
in that swf and got "undefined".
If I trace "s" at the source (the function at level0) - when
the swf with panel_txt loads, the trace returns "panel_txt". But at
the point where the function is called - panel_txt is "undefined".
It's there but its not there.
How do I define panel_txt at Topic 3 so I can attach a
scrollbar to it?
Hi Rob - Thanks for the reply. I'm in way over my head with
To answer your ques - Yes - panel_txt is inside the Topic3
swf. More precisely, the CALL to the function that creates
panel_txt is on the main timeline/action layer of Topic 3. The
panel_txt.htmlText is part of the function call.
How I am assigning the text and the scrollbar is shown in the
attached code. The "Where" is as already stated "on the main
timeline/action layer of Topic 3.
I hope I have all the terminology correct in my explanation.
Does this help?
Thanks for any input that can solve this. I have tons of
these Topic swfs.
