Hey, I know this is a bonehead question, but I'm brand new to
ActionScript and I don't even know where to begin looking:
I'm using Flash 8, and I need to do the following:
I have a bunch of buttons that simulate a number pad, and I
need the to alter a text box to reflect the numbers pressed and the
order they were pressed in: exactly like a calculator, so clicking
on the buttons for 1, 2, and 4 will change to text box/display
thingy to say "124." THEN, I need to be able to store than value
(124) and recall it into another text box/display thingy... or save
the same text box and display it at a different frame in the time
line. So, for example:
I gotoandStop at frame "NumPad," where I can punch in a
number and it shows up in front of me. Then, I hit a "Select"
button, and we gotoandStop at frame "Confirm" where the
number I punched in is displayed but not alterable.
you can use a key listener (check the Key class) to detect
when the keypad numbers are pressed and you can store those values
in a string variable as they are detected and display them in a
i'm not sure what you want to do when "select is pressed, but
a dynamic textfield is not editable so your number will continually
be displayed and not editable.
