    Text box GoTo

    Bum McFluff
      Is it possible to use a text box to move you to a specific position? If I have a long timeline which can be accessed by NextFrame buttons, can I instead (or as well as) have a text box, into which I will type a name or number which relates to a frame label and will take me to that frame?

      For example, if I had a calendar type timeline with different events on different days, could I type in "Jan24" which is also a frame label, and go to that specific frame to see what is going on on January 24?

          sure. just have your users click a button to use the date entered. having users utilize the format you expect or using the flash string methods to convert user input to you frame label format may not be so easy, but in general you can use:

          btn.onPress=function(){
          _root.gotoAndStop(dateTF.text);
          }
