you have a textfield with no instance name and with associated variable = welcome and that textfield exists on frame 1 of your swf. both true or no?
and your code in frame 2 is supposed to do what?
Thanks for the tip kglad. I can see now why it could not see the text. You got to let it know what to use. Forgot all about the associated variable fpr the text.
What I am trying is a non stop scroller and in 2 It is to keep the message scrolling. I may have to work with the number to get it to work with in the the background frame. I have tryed it and now the scrolling stop but can see the text.
oh, you are trying to use a frame loop. you don't want to use gotoAndPlay(2) on frame 2. put that on frame 4.
OK why on 4 and not on 2. The text and the loop should work on 2 as that the only thing that it has to do. Or am I missing something .
as soon as the playhead enters frame2 the code executes which directs the playhead to frame 2 (it's already there so that causes no change), stuff is revealed on stage in frame 2 and then the playhead continues to frame3.
the result of your gotoAndPlay(2) on frame 2 is the same as not having that code. ie, it does nothing.
if you want a frame loop so frame 2 plays repeatedly, place that gotoAndPlay(2) in a frame after frame 2. but if you place it in frame 3 then nothing on-stage in frame 3 will be displayed because the code executes first and then the stage is updated.
