If I am reading you correctly, you 'want' HTML to load in the text box, but it isnt. Your explanation is a little confusing.
If you want html to be read on the box, you need to:
instancename.html = true;
instanceName.htmlText = &membertext1;
Also make sure you check the "Render as HTML" box in the text box properties.
Post your text box code if you are still having problems
I do not want it to read html I want it to write exactly what is in the text file so it would show the html code along with the regular text like this
here is a link <a href="www.adobe.com" target="_blank">click</a>
if I trace it it works.
This is in CS3
So you have a 1 text box, that you want it to read HTML code and also NOT display HTML?
Cant have it both ways. You need to trick the text file. Use special characters to create the carrot returns.
< = <
> = >
" = "
soooo try this
<a href="www.adobe.com" target="_blank">click</a>
two text boxes
-one shows the html text (this works)
-one shows the exact text ( this doesnt work )
