I expect this is a really easy question!
i have two movies.
1 has a text input box it.
I want the contents of this box cleared when the 2nd movie loads.
The problem im having is due to levels. I dont really understand how to affect an item in another movie.
Any help or suggestions are gratefully recieved.
If the command is coming from the timeline of the second movieclip, then you can use
_parent.mc.iText.text = "";
The _parent part of that line points it back to the main timeline. "mc" would be replaced with whatever instance name you assign to the first movieclip. "iText" would be replaced with whatever instance name you assign to the input text box.
Thank you for your help! i managed to figure out the precise requirements using your guidence.
for those that are interested, I changed is slightly to target the variable of the input box like so:
Leve0 = the level it is on.
my_acc = the accordion component, relevent to me, probably not to you.
square = the movie
varkeyword = the desired variable.
Thanks to the gentleman that responded.
