    Using text input by user in context

      Please help! This is an urgent project so clear instructions would be very helpful!

      1) In the first frame of the movie there is a movieclip which contains an input field and a submit button. The movie clip has the instance name "enterName_mc" and the input field "inputName". When the user clicks the submut button or presses enter, the name entered into "inputName" needs to be captured as a string or whatever.

      2) After the second frame "enterName_mc" disappears on the root timeline and then a new mc called "errorBox" appears on the 20th frame.

      3) in "errorBox" there will be a dynamic text field that needs to display the following text "Welcome <name captured from inputName> to our website"

      Basically I need to know how to capture the name, export it to the _root timeline, load it into errorBox and then insert it into a dynamic string of text!

      If this can't be done, and it needs to all be inside the same movieclip the same questions apply.
