    Dynamic Text

    sbryner Level 1
      Hello,

      Is there a reason why my dynamic text loads in the .txt file but will only scroll the first few sentences? Could there be a problem with the .txt file itself or is there something I'm forgetting? I've done this numerous times and this has never happened. Has anybody else had a problem like this?

      My dynamic text box is set with <> and borders on. Is there a limit to how many returns (lines) are allowed inside the text box?

      thanks,
      sky

            Here's what I have relating to it....

            (note:I have a text file from notepad named "twoSalmon.txt" in the same folder as the .swf. Plus,I don't know if this makes a difference but this .swf loads into the main .swf loader.)



            var mytableLV:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
            mytableLV.load("twoSalmon.txt");

            scrollBar.visible = false;

            mytableLV.onLoad = function(success) {
            if (success) {
            myMenu = mytableLV.myMenu;
            buffets = mytableLV.buffets;
            }
            };

            //* Button to place text from file into dynamic field \\


            menu_mc.onRelease = function () {
            infoBox_txt.htmlText = myMenu;
            if (infoBox_txt.textHeight>=infoBox_txt._height) {
            scrollBar._visible = true;
            } else if (infoBox_txt.textHeight<=infoBox_txt._height) {
            scrollBar._visible = false;
            }
            };

              the error is most likely in your scroll function that you did not provide

                I don't have a scroll function. I guess I haven't looked in to that yet. I have a Scroll Bar component and linked it to the dynamic text box infoBox_txt. Then linked the infoBox_txt to a .txt file and in that file I have &header="text here". It just doesn't load it all.

                this has worked before... I don't know, I'm confused... I'll look into scroll functions.

                thanks for the heads up on a scroll function.
