What's the BASIC way to store data inputted by a user into an
Like if I have a box and "please input your name" next to it
and someone types "Johnny Fairplay" and presses enter, what's the
code to take that name and hold on to it for later (where I will
send it via PHP but I have that part down already)?
BASIC? This is a
forum for Actionscript, not BASIC. :)
You wouldn't have a box to input the name you would have an
input textField. When you check out the help files for textField
class you will see there is a text property of the textField. With
that you can get the value of the input anytime you want.
trace("The user input: "+userName.text);
//and so forth
Depending upon what exactly you are doing that info could be
put into an array or an XML object and so forth, but those are a
bit more advanced usages.
However if you need to wait until the user has entered
something there are events for that. Again check the help files for
the textField class.
