    recognizing filled input fields

    Deggz Level 1

      Is there a way for Actionscript (2.0) to understand when an input field has been filled, or hit a certain limit? I want a mc to pop up when an input field has been filled out completely (hitting the maximum number of characters for that field).

      I tested out charCount but it seems to just tally the potential maximum characters in that field, instead of actual content being typed in.

      Thanks for any help in the right direction. =-)

      Edit: What I have so far is a simple if staement with a trace to test it, with JEntry being the instance name of the input field.

      if (this.JEntry.text.length == 280); {
      trace (JEntry.text.length);
