all textfields in flash have a text property that you can use to retrieve or change the textfield's text content. and you will use variables to store the text properties of interest to you and the button choices. you can then retrieve those variable's values when needed.
to print in flash, check the printjob class in the flash help files. sample code is included there.
Can you give me some clearer directions on the textfield?
Also, for printing do I need to add a movie clip or not?
I used this code:
var pj:PrintJob = new PrintJob();
pj.addPage( this ); // this refers to the Document object of the executing MovieClip
and I got a dialog box, but I got this message:
Error: Error #2057: The page could not be added to the print job.
what does that mean?
if you have a textfield with instance name tf, you can use:
to reference the text in the textfield.
in as2, you need a movieclip for the addPage parameter. in as3, you can use a sprite.
