It could be done somehow probabli the firt suggestion of yours would point the right direction - but why on Earth would you wnat to do that dynamicly. It wont be readable, and to fit the "whole" text into would be pita?
My first idea maybe the best one, but I don't know how to do it. Can anyone tell me how to get text to fill in more than one text box. For example, if the line of text reads, "Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? We've got some work to do now."
The first text area can only fit the words, "Scooby Dooby."
The rest of the text will be sent to the next text area, which will fit the words, "Doo, where are you? We've."
Then the rest of the text that doesn't fit on that line gets sent to the next text area down, and it says, "got some work to do now."
So, now with all of the text inserted into the text boxes, it will look like this:
Doo, where are you? We've
got some work to do now.
I just want to have the text wrap not onto the next line of the same text box, but onto the first line of another sepparate text box.
I hope this makes sense. I trust my Scooby Doo song will help clarify any questions you may have, just as Scooby Doo and his gang were always able to get to the bottom of any mystery they had stumbled upon.
create a movieclip that contains a textfield only, give that textfield and instance name and give your movieclip a linkage id. you can then use the string methods to allocate each character of your string into one movieclip.textfield and arrange the textfields to suit your needs.
Okay. I will try that. I'm no programming wiz, but my friend is. So I will force him into helping me. Then we will surely get it to work. Thanks kglad and 2m.
